This report examines housing wealth in Scotland.
Housing wealth (defined throughout this report as the net value of residential dwellings held by households) has grown significantly in Scotland over time. The Resolution Foundation estimates that Scottish property wealth was worth around £2.7 billion in 1968; by 2018, this figure had increased by a factor of more than 100 to an estimated £308 billion.
