Edinburgh for sale: ESPC reveals the top 10 most-viewed homes in July in Edinburgh and surrounding areas

No flats make the Edinburgh-based company’s latest monthly list

Scottish property portal ESPC has revealed the 10 homes which were most popular with buyers on its website during July 2023.

In contrast to previous months, in July, property buyers were searching for homes in Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife and the Borders at a variety of price points, showing how varied available budgets currently are. The cheapest of the most popular properties was priced at offers over £195,000, while the most expensive was offers over £740,000. The most popular properties for July belonged exclusively to houses, with no flats making the top 10.

Paul Hilton, CEO, ESPC, said: “July’s most popular homes on espc.com are proof of the variety in buyers currently in the market, and it goes to show that sometimes, the real trend is that there is no trend – our buyers are all looking for something different in their next home, and they all have different amounts to spend. Every sale is unique, after all.

“It’s great to see more affordable properties in the mix, with some homes priced around the £200,000 mark, showing that there are definitely newer or first-time buyers in the market and feeling optimistic about securing their first home. It’s also reassuring to see a strong number of higher-end properties garnering plenty of appeal too, there’s clearly no shortage of buyers in either market.

"It’s also interesting to note the rise in fixed-price properties making the list; we’re seeing an increase overall in the number of properties listing for a fixed price, which is sure to appeal to buyers across all budgets.”
