Our house price statistics include all residential sales in Scotland between £20,000 and £1,000,000, and are based on date of registration.
They are produced in line with the Code of Practice for Statistics.
These statistics come from the land register. They date back to April 2003, when the last of Scotland's counties joined the land register.
Our house price statistics are distinct from the UK House Price Index. Read our Knowledge Base guidance notes and comparison page for more information.
Please note, we are currently reviewing these statistics, please let us know if you make use of them by emailing Rachael.Fairley@ros.gov.uk

Updates to unassigned sale reporting
Following user consultation, the tables which previously showed unassigned sales allocated to house types using historic data ratios have been withdrawn.
Unassigned sales will now be shown as a separate line in our house type data. When submitted to RoS for registration, a number of sales cannot be assigned to a house type.
This is primarily due to time lags between a title being received for registration and the map base being updated, particularly for new build properties.
The number of unassigned sales typically decreases as applications are completed and more information becomes available.
The data shows:
- calendar year statistics
- latest quarter summary
- the average price
- volume of sales
- market value
- the median price
- average price, volumes and market value by house type
- residential sales volumes by price bracket
Upcoming release dates
Our quarterly statistics are published at 9.30am on the first working day in the second month after quarter end.

Areas with less than 5 sales have the number and value of sales suppressed to help minimise the risk of data disclosure and to ensure that any averages presented are based on at least 5 records.
