For those looking to rent in the city, the average asking rent is £956 pcm. Glasgow is very popular amongst landlords and renters with two of its postcodes coming under Scotland’s Top 5 Buy-to-Let areas in 2019. If you've decided Glasgow is the home for you, be aware that the most popular time to move in this area is summer, with August being the top month for house moves.

Compare My Move's data shows just how affordable house removals are in Glasgow, with the average lowest price at £448 and the highest removal cost at just £740.

Happy Movers highlights satisfied customers who received great service from Compare My Move and our partners. When Iain and his family decided to move to a larger house, they came to us to find a Glasgow-based company to get them into their new home.
In Glasgow, the most popular time of the year to move house is August with over 11% of home moves taking place in this warmer month. This is unsurprising as summer is often a popular time with movers as they take advantage of the warmer, longer days and the abundance of light.
Summer is so popular in fact, that August is also the most favoured month to move throughout the whole of the UK. With school holidays, better weather and longer days, it’s important to book your removal company in advance with Compare My Move.
As with the rest of the UK, the winter months of January, February and December are Glasgow’s least popular months to move house with only 5.7% of home moves occurring during December.
With the weekend providing lots of free time, Friday is the most popular day to move in Glasgow. With a majority of 34.5% of Compare My Move movers choosing this day, it’s obvious that the end of the working week is the best time to find those necessary free hours needed for a smooth and successful removal.
With the return to work too close to risk the removal chaos, Sunday is the least popular day to move in Glasgow with only 5% of home moves taking place then. With conveyancing offices closed at this time, this is unsurprising to see as this lack of communication could cause further delays.
It's important to remember that some removal companies might offer special discounts for a Sunday move or days that are in low demand, so it's worth talking to your removal company once you've compared quotes.
Compare My Move help people move house all over the UK. We've researched some of the most popular areas for our Glasgow movers. The favourite destination was London, with 2% of all moves going here.
Although London's average house price is a lot more expensive than Glasgow's affordable £193,088, London offers excellent job opportunities as well as a varied property market, so we can see why many movers would want to choose London.
Other favourites include Clydebank, Helensburgh and Edinburgh. We've looked at these locations and included the average property price as well as some local information about each area.compare now
With the highest percentage of home moves from Glasgow travelling here, London is first on our list. Due to the high salaries and an abundance of job opportunities, it’s no surprise that many movers decide to relocate to England’s capital. However, London’s biggest drawback is the property prices as the city’s current average house price is £466,824. This is incredibly high compared to Glasgow’s average of £134,162.
With an average property price of £106,996, we can see why Clydebank is a popular destination for home moves from Glasgow. Situated on the north bank of Scotland’s most famous river, the River Clyde, Clydebank is a beautiful area with an easy commute for those still working within the city.
Helensburgh lies on the north shore of the Firth of Clyde and has an average property price of £210,473 with a mix of modern family homes and stone-built Victorian villas. It’s a short distance away from Glasgow with 3 railway stations and regular buses for those wishing to still work within the city.
Just behind London, Edinburgh is the second largest financial centre in the UK, providing an array of employment opportunities and a range of property types to choose from. As it’s the capital of Scotland, it’s not surprising to learn that the average property price in Edinburgh is considerably higher than Glasgow’s, currently estimated at £263,233.
Glasgow’s average property price is £193,088, up 9% from 2019. The price of detached properties is up by 12% over the last 12 months, while the cost of a terraced property in Glasgow stands at £182,800, up 12.6% since 2020.
Glasgow offers affordable property prices compared to London and the UK average, making it a great place to live. To help with your research, Compare My Move has listed 4 of some of the cheapest areas in Glasgow to help you find the best home that fits your personal budget.

The second cheapest area to live in Glasgow is Carmyle which has an average property price of £94,352 and offers a range of beautiful, family-friendly Victorian houses.
