Scottish Prices Are Still Rising

The Scottish rise in house prices has slowed after the boom of last year, but prices across Scotland are still rising however, according to Lloyds TSB Scotland.

In the 3 months to 30th April 2006, the quarterly price rise index for Scottish property rose by 4% to give an average house price of £133,968. Average prices have now risen for 21 consecutive quarters.

The largest annual rise is recorded in Dundee at 30%! However, with a quarterly rise of just 1.5%, the bulk of that rise is attributable to house price increases last year, rather than in 2006.
