Fife Property - East Neuk

We went to see a house today in East Neuk near St Andrews. We like the area. The estate agent told us that the area has not only survived the UK general downturn but house prices are increasing. In the Borders we were told by the leading agency (Rettie) that expectations are still too high and houses are selling at 25% discount on ask. It was interesting but although we like Fife, this time we came home saying we are better in the Borders, the country is prettier. It may not have the tourism and cute gift shops, but its nice quality farming land with good people.
