Scotland might be in lockdown, but after a year of digital investment we are here to keep the property market moving.
The Scottish Government has confirmed that people will still be allowed to move home under the new lockdown rules.
New guidelines issued by the government class moving home, including viewing properties, as one of the 'essential purposes' under which people can leave their home.
To operate as safely as possible, we are now offering viewing, valuation and mortgage services digitally....
We offer virtual valuations, which allow our experienced property experts to assess the value of your home without visiting in-person.
Using video call technology, sellers can walk our agents through their home so that we can accurately predict what your home is likely to achieve on the open market
Physical valuations are permitted at the moment, however we are operating on a virtual valuation first basis.
We have invested in the latest technology from the United States to create stunning virtual tours of the homes we sell.
Our Matterport cameras can scan every inch of a room in just a few seconds, creating a 3D simulation that you can walk through using your phone, tablet or computer.
These tours allow buyers to get a real feel for a property without physically entering it, helping sellers to minimise contact with other households.
Our mortgage advisers are also using video technology to fully resume operations and offer consultations.
Our advisers offer free whole-of-market mortgage advice to find the best deal for our clients - so if you're thinking of moving, speak to us first.
