Repossessed Houses for Sale Edinburg: Why should you look for repossessed houses for sale in Edinburgh? Well, the capital city of Scotland has been ranked as the best large European city for foreign investment in the recent European Cities and Regions of the Future awards; if it’s good for foreign investors then it must be good for local investors too, so Edinburgh is a marvellous place to look for repossessed properties for sale.  And, back in 2007, the Channel 4 property programme Location, Location, Location, voted Edinburgh the best place to live in the UK.

The city of Edinburgh is diverse and multi-cultural with participation from all members of the community in the various festivals and cultural events actively encouraged.

A third of those who work in the city commute in from the suburbs and, even more interesting for potential property investors in Edinburgh, the commute time to Glasgow is just 50 minutes; a very commutable time that will reduce even further with the proposed high-speed rail link.

Repossessed Houses for Sale Edinburg

There are four distinct residential areas in Edinburgh:

Central Edinburgh

The home of Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood House is also home to thousands of ordinary people who live in the residential districts of both the Georgian Old Town and New Town

North Edinburgh

Once the artists’ quarter, North Edinburgh is now the chosen home of the upwardly mobile and overflows with boutiques and smart delicatessens. Leith, the nominal capital of the area is a ten minute bus-ride from the city centre.  There is an enormous riverside regeneration programme underway, creating Waterfront City, to include residential, business, retail, and leisure facilities.  Definitely a region that is ‘on the up,’ and one where buying a repossessed property should pay dividends.

East Edinburgh

East Edinburgh is, to all intents and purposes, the city’s seaside resort; just a twenty minute bus-ride from the city centre.

West Edinburgh

The city’s garden suburbs and address of Murrayfield, the home of Scottish rugby.  There are also a number of business parks providing employment, as well as Herriot Watt University, a centre for business and technology learning.
