The latest quarterly report from the ASPC gives a reassuring picture of local market activity, with the house price index remaining, mostly, in the positive. The change in quarterly price is +1.5%, while the annual change is -0.5%. Taken over five years, the index is marginally positive at +0.4%. While the figures are reassuring, it may well be that our local market is yet to feel the strain of the general economic background and only time will tell whether this will be reflected in the remainder of 2023. Buyers’ wariness over the short term may well affect property sales as they effectively “sit tight” to see what happens with interest rates. This may result in a sluggish Autumn/Winter market as moving plans are put on hold, but for the moment, there is still healthy demand for properties in desirable locations and in good condition.Read More

Portsoy is a charming coastal village situated along the Moray Firth and lying approximately eight miles west of Banff and 54 miles from Aberdeen City. This beautiful port village benefits from spectacular scenery, having some of the best coastal views Scotland has to offer. A small yet thriving community, Portsoy is home to a variety of amenities, including a GP practice, pharmacy, local supermarket, community library and a range of cafés. There is primary schooling with an attached nursery unit, while secondary education is available at Banff Academy. A bus service provides regular transport to Aberdeen and other areas.
With a range of leisure pursuits available along the coast and further inland, within Portsoy the new harbour was built during the mid-19th century to accommodate the growth of the local fishing industry. Portsoy is also known for its production of Portsoy marble, which was used as part of the decor for the Palace of Versailles.
