100 Best Home Selling Towns in Dec 2008

Press release: 7 Jan 2009

UK housing market analysis by Home.co.uk has identified the UK's most resilient local housing markets. The wealthy suburb of Bearsden, near Glasgow, tops the 100 strong list of the most dynamic home selling markets with an average marketing time of just 73 days.

The locations listed, those remaining relatively unscathed by the current economic bust, are dominated by Scottish towns and some of the more prosperous towns in England. Dundee, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow are the highest ranking cities, suggesting that the property market is thus far least affected in Scotland. Bloomsbury and Holborn are the most dynamic housing markets in London, with average marketing times of 122 and 123 days respectively.

Home prices in these active housing markets, where supply is still matched by demand, are likely to suffer the least over the course of 2009.
