To sell Edinburgh property quickly you’d want to deal with a local, right? People who know the Edinburgh market well? Edinburgh deserves a special mention here, because it’s where we are based. It’s no secret that Edinburgh property is taking longer to sell – especially at the cheaper end of the market. espc’s own figures confirm this. So if you need to sell or are fed up being “stuck” what’s the best course of action?
How best to sell?
If you’ve already tried to sell via espc or elsewhere you’ll know how things work on the open market. You are at the mercy of the right buyer coming along, and this can take months. For sellers, the “offers over” system works really well in a rising market. And to some extent, it’s still serving the best properties well – especially at the high end of the market. But there’s been a change. More properties are coming on at fixed prices or on an “offers around” basis. Prices paid are generally lower than valuations. This is an important point. It seems regardless of how you sell the price paid will be less than the Home Report valuation.
You could try managing your own private sale. There are lots of online resources to help you market your property. Or you could try local advertising. The biggest problem you’ll have is finding a buyer. If you are confident dealing with people and don’t mind the hassle of it all, selling privately in Edinburgh is definitely worth trying. Just remember you’ll need a Home Report if you advertise your property for sale.

Level of offer
There are many misleading adverts on the internet about the level of offer you can expect.
