Property prices in Uddingston village are higher than in many neighbouring towns, due to a combination of high demand and low availability. The village is renowned for its elegant red stone villas, reflecting the popularity of Ayrshire-sourced sandstone during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The suburb of Kylepark is particularly sought after, while its blend of traditional properties and post-war private housing recurs throughout the village. Landscaped new-build estates face each other across Bellshill Road courtesy of award-winning housebuilders, and another new-build development is currently under construction around the corner.

Across the motorway in North Lanarkshire, Calderbraes is noted for having a relatively high proportion of bungalows along its hillside avenues and crescents. Property prices are markedly lower on the North Lanarkshire side of the M74, while the same is true for Tannochside’s estates of brick-built 1990s detached villas. A new residential estate is presently being marketed in Tannochside, with another site beside the Smurfit Kappa factory scheduled for release later in 2017. Elsewhere, Viewpark is a large scheme constructed in the late 1950s and 1960s, backing onto the stunning Viewpark Gardens complex and ideally placed for access onto the central Scotland roads network. Finally, despite sharing a G71 postcode with Uddingston and Bothwell (and often being described as part of Uddingston), the modern Broomhouse housing estate is a suburb of Glasgow's east end. It is administered by Glasgow City Council.
