Top of the Props: Our pick of the best new homes for sale in Aberdeen
Aberdeen is one of the most affluent cities in the UK, with a high proportion of its population reaping the rewards of an oil industry that has flourished since the 1970s. It’s also a popular university town, with a substantial number of students providing a vibrant rental market for investors.
Though some are concerned that the recent fall in oil prices, if sustained, could impact heavily on the Granite City, it still draws interest from buyers in its centre and sought-after suburbs. The recently published Aberdeen City Region Deal, forged by the City and Aberdeenshire councils, calls for government funding of around £2.9bn for infrastructure improvements and projects an increase in population of 54,000 over the next ten years.
