A COWDENBEATH home was the most popular property on the ESPC's website last month. 

The four-bedroom house on Hilton Road was one of just 10 properties that pulled in over 90,000 views on their website

And for good reason, with modern finishes, including a media wall in the bright living room, integrated appliances in the spacious dining kitchen, a separate utility room, a downstairs WC, a large garage, four good-sized bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite, and a large family bathroom, this is the perfect property for a growing family. 

Family homes dominated the list, with seven of the top 10 properties being houses with three or more bedrooms, while there were also three two-bedroom flats catching the eyes of house hunters.

Prices varied across the board; the most affordable property on the list was listed at £155,000, stretching to £495,000 for the most expensive.

The Cowdenbeath home fell in the middle of this price range and was on the market for offers over £280,000.

Paul Hilton, CEO of ESPC, said: “After March’s figures showed that all of ESPC’s most popular properties were located in Edinburgh, it’s interesting to see such a mixed bag returning to the fore, with our top three properties located across Fife and East Lothian.

"It shows just how much variation and demand that there is in the market, as the most popular homes are spread across the city, coast, countryside, and villages.

"The varying asking prices of these properties is broad, again indicating much variation in the buyers currently in the market.

“Speaking of budgets, the majority of the most popular properties this month were either modern homes, or properties that have undergone substantial and recent refurbishment, suggesting that househunters may have less to spend on renovations after purchasing a property and are looking for something turnkey to maximise affordability.

"We always see at least one renovation project in our midst, and it’s unsurprising that this month’s project of choice is located in a typically highly sought-after location, indicating that some buyers will be happy to spend what they need to in order to call a particular location home.

“More than half of the homes are already under offer, showing that even in a highly saturated market, buyers will still act fast and move competitively to secure a property that’s caught their eye.”
