A website aimed squarely at frist time buyers has reported how property sales across Edinburgh and the Lothians have picked up since Easter.
My First Home website piecked up a report from the influential ELPG group of property solicitors, which suggests sales remain resilient despite the recession.
The ELPG is made up of five member firms – Warners, Neilsons, Leslie Deans & Co, the Lints Partnership and Drummond Miller.
Between them they sold a total of 53 properties between them during the last week in April.
The total included exceptional individual figures at three of the firms, which each recorded 13 property sales.
Angus Macpherson, partner at ELPG member firm Drummond Miller, said: “No-one is saying that everything is rosy in the property market. After all, sales are still significantly down from their levels in 2007 and house prices have fallen over the last year.
“There is still a long way to go before we see a full recovery. However, there is still a lot of good news out there for buyers and sellers.”
