When it comes to putting down roots, living in the big city holds the biggest allure for aspiring young professionals.
The latest research from Bank of Scotland reveals that the Leith and Victoria Quay area of Edinburgh is the leading property hotspot for Scotland’s career minded young adults.
The top ten areas that attract the most young urbanite professionals in Scotland are spread evenly across the three leading cities; Edinburgh (four separate postal areas), Glasgow and Aberdeen (both three).
In the capital, the most popular areas for young professionals are in the north east, the west and north side of the city, as well as Leith. Properties in the areas popular with young professionals do not typically come with a hefty price tag. EH6 in Edinburgh, for example, has an average price that is almost 30% lower compared with Edinburgh as a whole – £144,7902 against £203,931.
