Edinburgh property: The 7 most desirable and up-and-coming areas in and around Edinburgh

Edinburgh areas most popular with home buyers revealed

The ESPC has revealed the most desirable and up and coming areas in and around Edinburgh, including the three latest local hotspots for buying homes and a significant increase in property listings in seaside areas.

Leith tops the list when it comes to homes sold in 2022 in Edinburgh, with sales still increasing this year. While seaside areas in and around Edinburgh have seen a significant increase in new property listings in the past year, with people moving further from the city centre to find larger properties for their budget.

Paul Hilton, CEO of ESPC, says: “In the past three months we have seen continued interest in suburban and out-of-town areas with a rise in new property listings in areas such as Corstorphine South Queensferry, Dalmeny and Portobello which are popular with young families and professionals who want homes with more space to accommodate flexible working patterns.

“There are also promising signs of more first-time buyers stepping onto the market, with Dunfermline and Leith recording the most sales from ESPC solicitor estate agents. Properties here are traditionally more affordable but offer a vibrant, exciting place to call home.

“If you are thinking of buying or selling in Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife or the Borders, contact your local ESPC agent today.”
