Housing Overview Airdrie
By Matt Robinson,

Private Housing

According to Registers of Scotland, the average price of a residential property in Glasgow City currently sits at around £127,207 a 1.2% increase since the previous month. Average asking prices for all types of properties have dropped slightly in the last year by 1.4% with the number of residential sales falling by 8.8%

Prior to 2008, Glasgow was one of ten areas in the UK with the highest economic growth, resulting in an average house price leap by 219% from £67,178 in 1998 to £214,162. After explosive growth, sometimes by as much as 25 percent a year, between 2001 and 2007, Glasgow’s housing prices fell 20 to 25 percent in 2008 when the financial crisis struck.

Social Housing

Tenants of housing associations and co-operatives generally have more rights and pay lower rents than those in the private sector. Anyone aged 16 and over can apply to live in a housing association or co-operative property. You do not need to live in Glasgow to make an application.

How long you will have to wait for a house may depend on a number of factors such as how popular the area is which you have chosen, the type of house and whether or not you qualify for any priority.

To apply:

In some parts of Glasgow you may need to complete an application form for each housing association or co-operative you have chosen. In other parts such as Easterhouse, a number of Housing Associations use a common application form which allows you to apply for housing with several associations at once.

Your application will then be assessed and prioritised using an allocation policy before being put on a waiting list. When a house becomes available, the allocation policy is used to decide who the house should be let to.

For more information about your rights as a tenant, or to locate contact details of your local housing office see the Glasgow City Council Social Renting section.


Glasgow City Council has a legal duty to help people who are homeless or are threatened with homelessness.

If you are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless within the next two months, you should contact your nearest Community Casework Team. They will assess your situation and provide help and advice in finding accommodation.
