Registers of Scotland Director of Commercial Services Kenny Crawford said: “The wealth of statistical data available to Registers of Scotland is reflected in this 10 Year Property Market Report.
“It’s been an interesting decade for the Scottish property market, which is now showing real signs of recovery since the economic downturn in 2008.
“During the course of the 10 years covered by this report, there was an overall drop of 7.4% in total sales values. Despite this, there is evidence that the market is improving, as the year-on-year value of total residential sales between 2012-13 and 2013-14 grew by 22.2% to £13.8billion.
“This is the highest total sales value since the height of the market in 2007-08, when the value of residential sales was £23.2 billion, before the downturn in 2008-09.
“Activity in the property market gives us an insight into what’s going on in the Scottish economy, which is possible thanks to Registers of Scotland’s digital Land Register.”
