Blackwood & Smith have been dealing with property sales and purchases in the Peeblesshire area longer than anyone else. We provide a comprehensive Estate Agency service mixing our traditional approach with modern technology and methods. We have two experienced estate agents able to offer thorough expert advice on the local property market and, with our five conveyancing solicitors able to assist throughout, we aim to make your move as smooth as possible.
Here are some reasons to instruct Blackwood & Smith to act for you in selling your property:
All of our properties are marketed on our website which is mobile-friendly in order to take advantage of the fact that most people now browse websites on phones or tablets rather than PCs. You will also find all of our properties on Rightmove, the largest UK property site, both on www.rightmove.co.uk and on the Rightmove mobile App.
But also a Traditional Approach
Despite technology, some of the traditional ways of selling properties are still just as important. We provide ‘For Sale’ boards and Sale Particulars for all of our properties. In addition, we have a busy Property Shop at one of the most prominent locations in Peebles High Street and details of all of our properties can be found there. We also advertise properties in the entrance to our Legal Office.
Most importantly of all, we provide our expert advice on the local property market. This is not to be underestimated. Property markets vary greatly from location to location. For example, the market in Peebles, Innerleithen, Cardrona, Eddleston, West Linton and the surrounding areas is entirely different from the market in Edinburgh, less than an hour away. We know how best to market properties in our area and will advise what the best price you can reasonably expect to achieve for your property. A good offer in one location is not necessarily a good offer in another.
We maintain a database of potential buyers so that we can distribute details of your property to as many interested parties as possible. We also have contacts with developers and buy-to-let landlords who we notify of any properties which might interest them.
As a Solicitor Estate Agent we can provide marketing for your property in the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre (ESPC). An advert in ESPC includes a listing on the ESPC and SPC Scotland websites and on the ESPC mobile App, advertising in the ESPC showroom on George Street, Edinburgh and advertising in the ESPC weekly paper, over 30,000 copies of which are distributed.
Estate Agency and Conveyancing Under One Roof
As a Solicitor Estate Agent we are able to deal with your entire property sale, from initial marketing through to completion of the conveyancing and handover of keys, as well as your onward purchase. All our Estate Agency clients have a solicitor contact right from the outset to assist and advise throughout the process of selling and buying. Moving home is already a very stressful process; why add to the stress by having to deal with multiple different agents? We aim to keep the process as simple as possible. Our five fully-qualified Solicitors are all experienced in conveyancing. We deal with residential, commercial and rural property and can advise on purchases, sales and leasing. We don’t just carry out conveyancing for properties in the Scottish Borders, and instead are instructed in transactions involving property anywhere in Scotland, whether in the city or in the countryside.
