An expert guide to selling property in Perth

An expert guide to selling property in Perth


Most buyers form their first impressions of a house within seconds of walking through the door.

Our Perth Branch Manager James McKay - who has been selling property in the city for two decades - has put together a list of his 'top tips' for selling.

1) Location, location, location

Perth is at the centre of the Scottish road network.  Make sure you mention the easy access to Broxden, and that the central belt can be easily reached in under one hour’s drive.

2) Getting about town

Buy to let landlords like properties offering easy access to the college.  If you are on the bus route to the college, make sure you point this out.

3) Bungalows and gardens

Bungalow’s are always sought after in Perth, particularly with easily maintained gardens.  Ensure your garden is low maintenance and access is easy throughout your bungalow with minimal furniture cluttering up the rooms. If your garden is your pride and joy, make sure it looks its best as many Perth buyers love a showpiece garden.

4) Kitchen space

Large family dining kitchens are important to buyers.  Ensure you show the space for a dining table and any seating furniture in the kitchen area if possible.

5) Have a clear out

Garages look an awful lot bigger if they are not full of junk.  Have a clear out before viewing day to show your garage off at its best.

Save hundreds of pounds on your home move

Throughout February, Aberdein Considine is offering Perth homeowners free conveyancing on their next purchase if they sell with us.
