Guide to selling property in Scotland
Discuss your intentions with a professional
To best understand the information you will need to know for selling your home in Scotland, we recommend discussing the sale of your property with a professional estate agent or negotiator. This will allow you to find out the estimated value of your property and gain knowledge of the latest estate agency services available to you.
Find a solicitor
In Scotland it is a legal requirement for both buyers and sellers to obtain the conveyancing services of a solicitor to act on their behalf. We are able to recommend a number of solicitors specifically suited to this for of legal service and that can represent you whether you are selling your property with Miller Stewart or not.
Acquire a home report
All properties being sold in Scotland must be accompanied by a 'Home Report' which is an independent survey regarding the details and condition of the property. When selling your property with Miller Stewart you will have access to our contacts through which we are able to offer discounted independent home reports.
Get your property ready to sell
To gain the best price for your property and sell quickly it is important that your property is suitable for showing to prospective buyers. Some repairs may be highlighted in your home report that could help the sale if carried out, but general maintenance and cleaning is highly recommended. De-cluttering and de-personalising your property will also help your property feel larger and help potential buyers imagine themselves living in your property.
Market your property
Having a strong marketing strategy is important for selling property quickly. We use tried and tested methods to achieve this while tailoring strategies depending on the value, type and location of properties so as to best target relevant buyers. Miller Stewart will advertise your property on its own website and a selection of the popular websites, reaching a wide range of buyers, locally, national & internationally. We also have the ability to advertise properties on other media such as newspapers for reasonable and competitive fee.
