According to reports, Kirkcaldy saw one of the largest property price increases in Scotland between 2021 and 2022. This is believed to be a result of post-pandemic behaviour, with commuter towns across the country becoming more desirable as fewer people are required to work in city centre offices.
Naturally, market conditions fluctuate over time and it’s impossible to accurately predict exact conditions over the coming years. However, it does seem likely that the housing market in Kirkcaldy will continue to strengthen, particularly with the development of the Fife Energy Park which is predicted to bring more residents to the town. If this is the case, it could be a great time to buy property in Kirkcaldy before prices increase further.
