Residential Property

This deal demonstrates residential property continues to stand the test of COVID-19. With the uncertainty of the Stock Market, and the pensions of many people at risk, we’ve experienced increased appetite from investors looking to safeguard their future with credible buy-to-let investments. The demand for rental property is incredibly high across the Central Belt because of under supply of new housing. The Scottish Private Rented (PRS) Sector has proven its resilience, confirming a landmark deal despite COVID restraints.
