ESPC has revealed the homes for sale that were the most popular on during November 2023.

The ten homes were mainly located in Edinburgh, with some appearances from properties in Midlothian and East Lothian, gathering 69,000 views on between them. Prices hovered around the £300,000-£400,000 mark, while the most expensive property was listed at £950,000, and the lowest priced was marketed at £235,000.

As we also saw from October’s most popular properties, ESPC househunters were similarly on the hunt to find a family house, with no flats making November’s top ten. Larger properties were the most popular, with half of the top ten homes offering four or even five bedrooms, and many of the properties were newer in style and design, offering a lower-maintenance alternative to traditional property styles.

Also like the stats we saw in October, the market moved at a brisk pace; seven of the ten properties are already under offer, showing how active the market remains, even in the winter months, a traditionally quieter period for property.

Paul Hilton, CEO of ESPC, said: “Yet again it’s another fascinating insight into the minds of ESPC househunters this month, with November’s buyers clearly set on finding long-term homes in some of Central East Scotland’s most popular and family-friendly areas. As we saw from last month’s figures too, there are clearly many second steppers and experienced buyers in the market, looking to upgrade from starter flats and first houses to larger properties they can put down roots in. Edinburgh also offered the most appeal for buyers this month, with six of the homes located in some of the Capital’s most popular postcodes, including Morningside and Bruntsfield, Corstorphine and Colinton.

“It’s been another fast month on the market, with the vast majority of our most popular properties having already been snapped up by keen buyers, showing how quickly buyers are willing to act, even in a market with plenty of choice, when they find the right property for their needs.”

Let’s take a closer look at the ten most popular properties on this month…
