A wide range of residential housing is available for sale or rent across the region, ranging from large country estates, modern townhouses, family homes and rural cottages, to individual apartments for first-time buyers.
With some 32 miles of coastline, many properties can enjoy an uninterrupted view of the sea. There has been significant new house building in many towns and a number of high quality building conversions in stunning rural locations.
The Borders Housing Network is committed to making sure an adequate level of quality affordable housing is available for residents and newcomers too.
The property outlook remains favourable with new, attractive and affordable housing coming on stream to meet market demand. The re-opening of the Borders Railway, scheduled for 2014, will make Edinburgh more accessible, particularly to the more southerly Borders towns of Selkirk and Hawick. This means that property in the Borders should continue to increase in value and represent an excellent long-term investment.
