But these factors haven’t put off UK property investors, because of the increase of demand in property, from first time buyers to tenants.


The international Edinburgh airport is another factor that helps tourism, business trade, and naturally offers local residents a short distance to a well connected airport.

In the mid 2010 the pouplation count of Edinburgh is 486,120. It has demonstrated a constant growth for over 10 years. Which in turn has increased the property rental and sales market.
