Scott Brown, estate agency partner at Warners, said: "There's a lot more confidence among buyers and, as a result, we've seen house prices and the number of property sales rising in recent months."

However, Mr Brown warned that the figures, which come on the back of two reports by Nationwide and Edinburgh Solicitors Property centre showing similar rises, should be viewed with a degree of caution.
