Edinburgh & Lothians for sale: ESPC reveals the top 10 most-popular properties for sale in June

Property portal ESPC has revealed the 10 properties that attracted the most views from househunters on espc.com during June, racking up an impressive 61,000 views between them.

Coastal properties were clearly in high demand as the summer kicked off, with four of the top five properties located in coastal areas, including three overlooking Portobello Beach. While for the second month running, nine of the 10 properties have already been snapped up by fast-moving buyers.

Paul Hilton, CEO of ESPC, said: “June was yet again an interesting month when we look at what’s piqued our househunters’ interests. It’s fascinating to see that so many of our top five properties were close to beaches, in particular Portobello Beach – perhaps the onset of summer has inspired property seekers to find a home where they can soak up the sunshine as much as possible.

“Detached properties are always popular, so it’s no surprise to see five in the top 10, and over the last few months, we’ve seen a leap in the number of houses over flats featuring in our top 10, which shows no signs of slowing down.

“Clearly, there are plenty of buyers in the market looking for a longer-term home, and with a few renovation projects forming part of this month’s list too, we can see that there are buyers who are not shy to roll their sleeves up and get a big project underway in the pursuit of creating their dream family home.

“The biggest point is of course that the vast majority of properties are already under offer, with nine of then having sold within just a few weeks. This absolutely reflects what we’re seeing across the market – now is a great time to buy and sell, with plenty of options available, a healthy market pace, and plenty of buyers looking for their next home.”
