I wouldn't be buying that one, besides, LBTT at that level is 2/3 of a 488, and I'd rather have 2/3rds of a 488!

Unless second home of course, when it's a whole 488.....

I gave no intention of moving house and am not remotely near the million quid bracket but out of curiousity I googled this. £78k tax?

The SNP really don't like the better off do they? The people they need to attract for the economy

I,m all for everyone paying fair tax but that looks excessive. More than double English rates?

Lot of house but not much garden, but amazing what you can do with your tennis court OH and IIRC under flight path for Glasgow airport!

Yes. The walls of glass look loses it's attraction when you are just getting a better view of your neighbour's fence a few yards away.

Yes it’s a real kick in the balls. However everything half decent on my alerts in 700k range is still selling in days or hours, so tbf not clear how big a difference would lowering the tax make?


It’s still a lot lower tax rate than most countries.

Are you sure? This study puts the UK among the highest.

Where are you looking? I am pretty sure prices in the west end of Glasgow are rising daily, the demand is utterly nuts.

Just remember, those are just the offers over figures - e.g. purely marketing figures, so they don't mean much. You may be aware anyway, but the actual value will be determined by the Home Report valuation, on those flats it could be £265k, could be £285k, could be £300k.

Then, you have people offering insane sums over value - £50k on a property of that nature is not uncommon in the current market, selling for £100k over value is possible on something pricier in an upmarket suburb or in the countryside.

The property market is insane at the moment.

Home report valuations are worth less than toilet paper. Flat for sale at O/O £250K, gets sold for £325k with 2 other offers at £315K.
So that’s 3 parties willing to pay at least £315k , so how much attention I’m I going to pay to a failed architect in a tie telling me it’s only worth £275k. Zoopla is a more realistic marker.

That may be, but if surveyors valued properties on the HR based on what the last person paid for something similar in the locale, then prices would run away higher and quicker than they are doing already.

IME Zoopla is about as accurate as pinning some valuations on a dartboard and throwing 3 darts, you might get lucky, you might be way off.
