If you are thinking of moving home you probably have a lot of questions on your mind. As local Solicitor-Estate Agents and members of the all important ESPC organisation, we are very well placed to help you from the very start.
Pre-Home Report Assessment
These days, you will need a Home Report before marketing your home. As the Home Report will be freely available for any potential buyer to read, it is critical to treat the survey upon which it is based with all due diligence.
To prospective and existing clients of Aikman Bell we offer a FREE Property Assessment ahead of arranging the survey. We can often save you, the owner, a great deal of money and hassle by advising on aspects that the surveyor would be likely to highlight in his report.
Within the Home Report there is a property Valuation and we can normally give accurate guidance about the likely valuation level the official surveyor will place on a property. Clearly, this is important if you are looking closely at mortgages for moving forward.
Finding a Buyer
Our job is not complete until we have found a buyer for your home. Buyers are the lifeblood of the property market and we maintain lists of potential buyers seeking property in your neighbourhood. Our “Early Bird Buyer” database is good for buyers and even better for SELLERS. It means we can sometimes have a buyer for property even before the For Sale board has been erected!
The Edinburgh Solicitor’s Property Centre (ESPC) is the organisation upon which most local property SELLERS depend. WHY? Because that is where BUYERS look when searching for property in Edinburgh and East Central Scotland. With a fantastic website, weekly printed paper, and super offices on Edinburgh’s George Street it’s the place for your home to be seen! Those few buyers who do not start their search in the ESPC will go there very quickly because that is where nearly all the local homes are advertised.
- Independent market research has shown that more sellers start their search for a new home with ESPC than any other marketing channel and more buyers start their search with ESPC than anyone else.
What you get…
Your property will appear on their website, with over 700,000 visits a month, as well as gaining additional exposure in The ESPC Paper which has 30,000 copies distributed a month and your property will be displayed in their George Street showroom. With a very popular email matching service with a database of more than 72,000 buyers, your home will be widely promoted via ESPC.
