The last Quarter of 2017 was predictably quieter than the Spring and Summer Quarters but rounded off a very successful year for Corum Largs. The number of house sales was the highest since the branch opened its doors in 2010 but the average price of each home sold was slightly down on previous years. High end properties are now standing out as being excellent value for money and even homes in the mid-price range are considerably less expensive than some nearby towns towards the Glasgow conurbation. With the demand for properties tapering off earlier than in recent years it is anticipated that the start of 2018 may, conversely, have a more buoyant start than usual. A number of homeowners have deferred listing their properties in the last Quarter, preferring to wait until January so the stock in the branch will have a greater variety than usual. The new super school is nearing completion and it is anticipated that pupils from two primary schools and the secondary school will make the transition in March 2018. We expect that the excellent educational standards will continue and be matched with modern surroundings that will add to the area’s reputation as a great place to raise a family. With some parts of Glasgow reaching record levels for property prices, clients in search of high quality affordable homes could do a lot worse than consider the stunning Ayrshire coastline.
