The school holidays have arrived, the rugby sevens circuit has begun – with the much heralded Melrose sevens this weekend – and Easter following hot on its heels.
Whilst we all agree that the market has changed dramatically in recent years, there are still many agents debating whether the ‘seasonality’ of the market still exists. However, it is evident that the window between the end of March and the end of October is still the most popular time for property launches and property searches.
This week has seen the launch of a cluster of new properties, some of which are rural and some that benefit from superb views, and with the clocks having changed and the sun higher in the sky – it remains an appealing time to go to market.
Monkswood Lodge, Gattonside is an immaculately presented, sumptious four-bedroom detached property with superb views across the River Tweed to Melrose and the Eildon Hills.
Architecturally designed it is a spectacular family home. Guide Price £640,000.
Ladhopemoor, Colmslie Cottages, Langshaw, sits in an enviable rural position North of Galashiels and comprises four bedrooms, with a south facing garden and excellent rural views. Guide Price £270,000.
Forebrae, Galashiels, a unique property, occupies an elevated position above the principal town of Galashiels, with three main bedrooms, and three reception rooms plus an attractive garden. Guide Price £260,000.
With more properties to come, and continued signs of an improving market, we can only hope that spring has properly sprung.
