 The anatomy of a housing boom
A research team, drawn from Edinburgh University and the School of Planning and Housing at Edinburgh College of Art, studied buyers in four areas of Edinburgh to find out how people made decisions in a booming housing market, what motivated them, and where they got their money.
The chosen areas were The Grange and New Town, traditionally high priced areas; Merchiston, with medium-priced houses; and Leith, low priced, and dominated by tenement like-flats - although this was also a rapidly rising neighbourhood.
Much of Edinburgh witnessed a house price boom in the late 1990s which the householders attributed to the accumulation of ‘cultural capital’, including the change in Scottish politics, the consolidating financial centre, and the fact that the city has a stock of distinctive domestic properties.
