Offers remain low

House buyers are continually offering less than the advertised cost of properties despite the ongoing plunge in asking prices, according to a survey. The s1homes Scottish house price report shows that the average property sold for about £9,000 less than the asking price in the three months to December. The average asking price fell by 3.33% to £166,494 but sales figures achieved also fell from £163,068 to £157,174.
