The next time you’re sitting in traffic, take a look around you. Chances are you’ll spot several cars that could easily set you back £40k or more.
For around the same amount, you could buy something that lasts much longer, like a property…
For first-time buyers, Flat A, 60 Victoria Road, Aberdeen, ticks many boxes.
On the market at offers over £44,000, it’s situated in the Torry area which means it’s within walking distance of the city centre.
Recently upgraded to a high standard, the first-floor flat benefits from a security entry system, central heating and double glazing.
The entrance hall offers access to all rooms which are decorated in neutral tones.
The lounge/kitchen area is at the front and it has a large window which lets in natural light. The kitchen is fitted with a selection of contemporary units and includes a breakfast bar and fully integrated, brand-new appliances including an oven, electric hob, washing machine and fridge/freezer.
An open fireplace with decorative tile surround makes a nice focal point in the lounge.
There’s a good-sized double bedroom with a built-in cupboard and space for additional furniture, and a shower room with newly fitted three-piece suite and electric shower. There’s no shortage of additional storage space thanks to a shared cupboard on the hall landing and a basement.
Outside there’s a shared garden and parking available.

There has to be something special about a house when the same family choose to own it for more than 40 years.
But now 63 Sutors Avenue in Nairn, an end-terrace two-bedroom house, needs new owners.
It requires some modernisation, which is reflected in the asking price of offers over £115,000, but has bags of potential.
The accommodation includes an entrance hallway and spacious lounge/dining room with windows at both ends.
While the units could do with upgrading, the kitchen is a good-sized room.
From here there’s direct access to the rear garden.
Upstairs there’s two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes; a shower room and handy linen store.
There’s gas central heating and double glazing.
Outside, double wrought-iron gates lead to a gravelled drive suitable for off-street parking for several vehicles.
There’s space for a garage, while the back garden is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a private oasis.

In Fraserburgh there’s a very grand self-contained, ground-floor flat, full of character and traditional features yet spacious and modern throughout.
Number 18 King Edward Street is on the market at offers over £117,000.
Beautifully presented, it forms part of a traditional granite property with front and rear gardens and a sheltered deck area.

The accommodation includes a large, elegant lounge, well-fitted kitchen with dining space, large double bedroom with en suite shower room and a separate WC.
Additional features include a coal shed; shed with power and light; single garage; gas heating and double glazing.
