22 December 2023
TSPC, the leading property portal for Dundee, Angus, and North Fife, is excited to reveal the most sought-after properties of 2023 on tspc.co.uk.
Outshining over 2,100 properties listed this year, these top ten homes collectively received over 230,000 views, drawing keen interest from prospective buyers and curious home enthusiasts alike. Whether it has been with the intent to buy, or just to have a snoop around the variety of homes on offer, these properties highlight a mix of traditional, unique, modern, and renovation-worthy residences.
Broughty Ferry takes the spotlight with several top properties, while others are located in Dundee, Carnoustie, Monikie, and Monifieth.
Both the highest and lowest priced properties find their place in Broughty Ferry. The former West Ferry railway station, listed for offers over £150,000, stands in contrast to an elegant stone-built villa at a fixed price of £649,995, nestled in the heart of Broughty Ferry.
Of the ten properties, seven have new owners, with one achieving an exceptional selling price surpassing its Home Report value by an astounding 15.6%. Only two of the top ten properties remain actively available for viewing and purchase on tspc.co.uk, while one property is temporarily on hold.
Angela Wallace, Centre and Operations Manager of TSPC, commented: “Despite many different economic factors throughout 2023, it has been an incredibly positive year for both TSPC and the local property market.
“With the average percentage achieved over Home Report value being 1.5% in 2023, it is fascinating to see properties sold by TSPC solicitor estate agents still surpassing this premium. One of them in our list achieved an incredible 15.6% over the asking price, and another exchanged hands for £52,000 over the asking price.
“TSPC maintains its dominant market share across Dundee, Angus, and North Fife. Our commitment to exclusivity ensures that all properties showcased on our portal remain unique, offering an unparalleled advantage as they can't be found elsewhere."
