The average price of a detached house in Scotland has risen by an average of £800 every month for the last decade, according to new figures.
Research by the Bank of Scotland found that detached properties had held their value better than other types of home in the five years since the market peaked.
In the second quarter of 2012 the average detached house was worth £238,111 - 9% less than five years ago but a 70% increase on the value in 2002.
On average property prices have dropped by 21% since 2007, with terraced properties now 27% cheaper and flats down by 23%.
Nitesh Patel, housing economist at the Bank of Scotland, said the worst affected property types were those popular with first-time buyers and "second steppers", who have seen the equity in their first homes evaporate.
He said: "Prices of all property types in Scotland have fallen over the past five years with the biggest declines for flats and terraced homes.
"These types are particularly popular with first-time buyers and their sharper price falls probably reflect the difficulties that those looking to enter the market for the first time have been facing."
