repossessed houses for sale Falkirk
Why should you be looking for repossessed houses for sale Falkirk? After all, it’s just a name on Saturday’s football results isn’t it? The truth is, Falkirk is far more than its football team…

Falkirk is, in fact, an administrative area set between Glasgow and Edinburgh; it encompasses Falkirk itself, as well as the towns of Bo’ness, Denny, Grangemouth and Stenhousemuir.

The district has easy motorway access to Stirling, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Carlisle and the north of England. Rail links are excellent with a good number of trains per hour serving the major cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, both of which are just a 25 minutes journey-time away. For more distant destinations, Edinburgh airport is a 25 minute drive from the centre of Falkirk itself.

The area is growing rapidly, despite the current economic downturn and house prices are competitive, currently at levels well below the Scottish average. However, with the types of property currently being built, house prices are expected to rise. Obviously, then, now is the right time to invest in repossessed houses for sale in Falkirk

According to Bank of Scotland figures for 2011, Falkirk experienced the biggest increase in house prices in 2011 in Scotland and the second highest increase in the UK at 12%.

Districts of Falkirk

Falkirk

Falkirk lies at the junction of the Forth and the Clyde Canal and the Union Canal and was at one time a centre of heavy industry; it is the principal town and administrative centre of the Falkirk Council area.

Falkirk town centre is served by excellent retail facilities and has two large shopping centres, a large retail park, and a pedestrianised high street.

Bo’ness

Bo’ness is an abbreviation of Borrowstounness, which lies on the south bank of the Firth of Forth. Although once a centre for heavy industry and coal mining, Bo’ness is nowadays primarily a commuter town that has been transformed courtesy of Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF). In short, Bo’ness is on its way up, making it a rewarding location for buying below market value properties in the Falkirk area.

Denny

Denny, which is 7.5 miles from Falkirk town centre, is another Falkirk district in the throes of regeneration, having been awarded a £6.5 million redevelopment package. Current proposals include:

  • A new library
  • Creation of a town square
  • Additional car parking
  • 2 development sites to be marketed to the private sector, including food store operators

Once again, an area of outstanding potential when it comes to looking for below market value properties in the Falkirk area.

Grangemouth

Just 4.5 miles from Falkirk town centre, Grangemouth provides employment opportunities in industry, business, shipping, and oil refining. Served by junction 6 of the M9, together with good bus services from Falkirk and Bo’ness, and easy access to the railway stations at Falkirk and Polment, Grangemouth is ideally located for commuting.

Stenhousemuir

With Falkirk town centre just 4.5 miles away and the M9 and M876 within easy reach, Stenhousemuir is another Falkirk district ripe for redevelopment and investment. The major problem, which has now been addressed, was the fact that Stenhousemuir faced backwards to the main road and, therefore, lacked visibility to passing traffic; add to this the lack of a town square or central meeting point and it’s easy to understand why Stenhousemuir was a place to pass by rather than to stop and visit.

With the ongoing redevelopment, Stenhousemuir becomes a destination and, therefore, an ideal location to search for repossessed houses for sale in Falkirk.
