Wages rising by 8.3% pa – how will this affect the Fife property market? (4 min read)

 

As they struggle to meet demand, Argos have had to increase the wages of their HGV drivers from £11.41 an hour to £15 an hour – a rise of 31.2% meaning their pay goes from £27k to £35k. Care home providers are offering signing-on bonuses of many thousands of pounds to entice nursing staff away from their competitors, and new homes contractors say labour costs are growing as the housing boom pushes up demand for bricklayers and joiners. Restaurant chains, coffee shops, blue-collar workers in factories and warehouses are seeing wages rise at an extraordinary rate.

Fife Homes Asking Prices Up 5% (3 min read)

 

With Rightmove announcing a national drop of 0.3% in average asking prices in August, some are asking if the steam has been let out of the property market. Yet with the gains we have seen in the last 12 months, is this just a minor bump in the road? Alarm bells normally ring when new homeowners coming to the market for the first time are having to lower their initial asking price when compared to the market as a whole.

Fife house prices dropped by 1.8% last month, according to the Land Registry.

This means the annual rate of house price growth in Fife has eased to 8.7%, a little way off the 10.8% yearly rate experienced only a few months ago. Don’t get me wrong, this is still decent growth in local house prices in anyone’s eyes, yet the ‘pedal to the metal’ growth rates seen only a few months ago do appear to be easing.

SUMMER VIEWINGS: Stand Out from The Crowd in The Best Season for Selling in Fife (4 min read)

Summer is upon us, and with it comes the best time of the year to sell your home (and to be an estate agent!).

 

Blue skies, warm temperatures and nature in bloom make photos look brilliant, and homes look their best, while the lighter nights fuel faster decisions with fewer viewings in the dark.

 

With so many positives, it’s no wonder that summer is the time of year when lots of people decide to sell. As more homes come on the market and the competition hots up with the weather, the name of the game is standing out from the crowd, instead of getting lost in it. In short, now is the time for your home to shine. Continue reading SUMMER VIEWINGS: Stand Out from The Crowd in The Best Season for Selling in Fife (4 min read)

Will Fife House Prices fall in 2022?

As 1 in 2 Fife homes are selling within a fortnight of coming to market

 

One of the most astounding things that has happened in the last 12 months was something that did not happen. Even after the country saw the deepest recession since the Great Freeze of 1709, with GDP dropping 28% in one quarter, one would have expected a large fall in Fife house prices would follow. Yet … Continue reading Will Fife House Prices fall in 2022? (Watch/read/listen)

Fife Property Market: 2011-2021 (Watch/3 min read)

A look back at the Fife housing market over the last decade

 

With everyone south of the border completing the Census a couple of weeks ago, it made me realise profoundly that mine and my family’s life, which from our own point of view seems unique and delightful, makes us all into a series of statistics for the Census gatherers to pore over. To digest and regurgitate facts, figures and trends for those who are interested in the ever-changing social circumstances of these islands.
