Surge in Interest for Yorkhill Flats

Glasgow’s Yorkhill is situated north of the River Clyde in the West End of the city. The privileged location and quality of housing have caught the eye of many wishful property buyers recently. The area attracts a wide range of demographics who are tempted by the proximity to up and coming Finnieston as well as Byres Road where there is a vast array of trendy shops, bars and restaurants as well as excellent public transport links. Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Kelvinhall and the University of Glasgow are within a few minutes walk. Also close to the SSE Hydro- Scotland’s home of live entertainment.

We currently see a surge in enquiries, viewings and consequently prices especially at the entry level of market with 1 bedroom apartments in Yorkhill simply flying off the shelf.

According to Rightmove, Yorkhill, with an overall average price of £175,325, was similar in terms of sold prices to nearby Glasgow (£172,886), but was cheaper than Hyndland (£320,701) and Partick (£192,354). During the last year, sold prices in Yorkhill were 13% up on the previous year.
