House Removals Aberdeen
Despite the wind, rain, cold and darkness associated with Scotland, Aberdeen manages to shine through. A port city in northeast Scotland, Aberdeen has a booming offshore oil industry and the city is a home to a mix of nationalities.
The riches of the North Sea have resulted in a spick and span city, often positioned in the top of the ‘Britain in Bloom’ league tables, and many lovely parks. However, the city is aware that one day the oil in the North Sea will run out. Therefore, the city has put money into diversifying the local economy, with electronics and IT.
However, if you want to get away from the city, take a visit to St Cyrus beach. There are miles of sandy walks, with cliffs crowned in wild flowers.
House Removals Aberdeen
The West End of Aberdeen is traditionally the most sought after location to live. Rosemount is very popular, if a little gentrified, and there are some stunning stone terraces in the Ferryhill district. Property prices in Aberdeen have increased in recent years, so many are opting to move to nearby villages and commute into Aberdeen.
Aberdeen, with an overall average price of £209,295 is more expensive than nearby Sheddocksley (£144,369), Rosemount (£138,983) and Hilton (£169,893). Three and four bed family detached homes and semis can fetch anywhere between £180,000 and £400,000, with terraces coming in at £105,000 to £250,000. One-bed flats, from £70,000; two-, from £95,000; three-bed posh West End apartments, £300,000.
