With Edinburgh consistently being voted into the top 10 of various “Best Of Guides” year on year then its no surprise that the city and surrounding areas have some fabulous places to set up home, and to suit all budgets!
The Higher End.
With property in Ettrick Road in Edinburgh setting you back around £1,899,000 its not quite in everyones budget. These stunning old houses can date back to the turn of the century and its easy to see why they command such a high price.
Something a bit more sensible.
If your looking for a family home then all the big house builders have New Build developments around the city and surrounding areas. Cala have a new site in Balerno with prices starting from £214k, They also have a well connected development in Straiton, with starting prices from £445,000.
Flat wise there is plenty to choose from as well. Miller homes has a brand new development in Bonnington with a 2 Bedroom Flat starting at around £217k and of course Rightmove is your go to website for the latest flats available to buy and rent.
City Centre Living.
As with any city, flats in the centre are well sought after and you can expect to pay a high price because of this. But there are bargains to be had. A great place to start checking and comparing prices is Zoopla.
Sure, Zoopla and Rightmove are great and you can get some very useful information on these kind of websites but nothing beats local knowledge, so if you know someone in the area ask them their advice and what it is like living there, they will be able to tell you what the local area is like for schools, transportation, amenities etc.
