If you are ready to make your first property purchase but find the search overwhelming, here are some ideas for first time buyers.

hermitage

Offers over £145,000

1 bed ground floor flat with 1 public room

Reference: 368876

This ground floor apartment is in a converted school  not far from Easter Road and it shares a lovely central courtyard. The rooms are spacious and I like the open plan kitchen and living room.

robertson2

6/11 Robertson Avenue, Edinburgh, EH11 1PT

Offers over £110,000

1 bed second floor flat with 1 public room

Reference: 368830

This one bedroom flat is in Gorgie, a popular area for first time buyers.  The flat has two bathrooms, which makes it quite unique, and I love the little alcove off the open plan living room/kitchen.

haddington

53 Market Street, Haddington, EH41 3JE (under offer)

Offers over £105,000

2 bed maindoor flat with 1 public room

You can get more for your money if you decide to move out of Edinburgh, and this flat in Haddington is great value as it has two bedrooms and a spacious kitchen and living room. There’s also an opportunity for developing the attic space.

 

musselburgh2

1H Harbour Road, Musselburgh, EH21 6DL

Offers over £115,000

1 bed second floor flat with 1 public room

Reference:  368647

This flat is light and airy, and with interiors that wouldn’t require much work to make your own. I like the fireplace in the bedroom and the stripped floorboards throughout. It’s also a very short stroll to Musselburgh Harbour.
