House price growth in Scotland slowed to 3.5 per cent in October, according to an index from Your Move.
The report found that prices fell by 0.2 per cent, or £276, in October, compared to a month earlier and that annual house price growth dipped to 3.5 per cent by the end of the month, compared to 4.4 per cent in September.
However, annual growth in Scotland was found to be the second strongest of the UK regions, well above the average for England and Wales for October, where annual growth was 1.3 per cent.
Your Move managing director Christine Campbell says: “Despite a slowdown in annual growth, both the strength and consistency of the Scottish market continue to be impressive. With demand strong and property still affordable, Scotland looks like it will finish 2017 in good shape.”
