Meanwhile, Graeme Lusk of brokers Walker Fraswer Steele said in Glasgow: "Still, a strong buyer's market at popular locations as a lack of stock on the market is continuing to maintain strong sales prices. & # 39;

It comes as a separate research that was revealed earlier this week that even the cheapest houses are unreachable for four out of ten young adults.
The findings of the Institute for Fiscal Studies found that about 40 percent would not be able to buy one of the cheapest houses in their area, even if they managed to save a 10 percent deposit.
In 1996, more than 90 percent of 25-34 year-olds with a 10 percent down payment could have bought a house in their neighborhood if they lent their salaries four and a half times.
The IFS found that this percentage had dropped to around 60 percent in 2016 and about a third in London.
The mortgage interest rate has fallen to a historically low level and remains there in the neighborhood, despite the increase of the base rate in August by 0.75 percent.
However, with house prices averaging six times the UK earnings, according to the Nationwide index and considerably more expensive in some parts of the country, buyers can not extend to a home, even with low mortgage rates.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors pleaded for a thorough review of wealth taxation after a survey among its members showed that they felt older homeowners were downsized by costs, hiding the real estate market.
Part of this bottleneck is caused by the fact that existing homeowners are not relocating and Rics claims that this often happens because they do not want tens of thousands of pounds to be surrendered in stamp duty.
