Latest statistics from the UK House Price Index show properties in February had an average cost of £145,762 – a drop of 0.2% on the same month in 2018.
This is the first annual decrease in Scotland since March 2016.
House prices also fell by 3.1% between January and February this year.
Janet Egdell, Registers of Scotland accountable officer, said, “The average price of a property in Scotland in February 2019 signalled the first annual decrease since March 2016, falling by 0.2% in the year to February 2019.
“Prices increased in around two-thirds of local authority areas and different property types showed a mixed picture, indicating that the market is highly variable across the country in this time of uncertainty.”
The UK average house price was £226,234 – an increase of 0.6% on February last year and a decrease of 0.8% on the previous month.
