We’re delighted that restrictions on house moves in Scotland will be relaxed from 29th June and buyers, sellers and renters can, once again, progress their moving plans.

We are awaiting specific guidelines from the Scottish Government, but we hope to be able to resume physical viewings, fully launch new properties to the market and help people to carry out their moving plans (whilst following government guidance to protect our staff and the public) from 29th June.

Launching Virtual Tours

We are investing in new technology to help keep our staff and clients safe.  Going forward, virtual viewings will play an essential role towards reducing physical traffic through a home.  We will be launching immersive 3D virtual tours so that buyers can experience a home without physically visiting the property.  The technology simulates moving around a property and enables potential purchasers to get a real feel for a property, whilst also being able to gain digital measurements of any part.  With most people still mainly at home, this will minimise footfall and disturbance to daily life, whilst increasing the chances of finding a buyer and ensuring our experienced sales staff only bring the buyers who are serious about a property through the door.

Surge in Demand

During lockdown, we have been busy registering interest from a huge number of people wanting to view properties and providing advice and guidance to sellers and landlords eager to get their properties on the market.  With home-mover momentum building and restrictions easing, we anticipate a surge in activity which will really help to kickstart the housing market. 

Early signs from the English property market are encouraging.  Following the re-opening of the market on 13th May, Rightmove recorded its 10 busiest ever days in May and June in terms of traffic and the amount of time people spent browsing the property portal.  The release of pent-up spring demand and a new wave of buyers entering the market (fuelled by people unhappy with their existing home and looking for features such as more space, better home working environments and improved outdoor space) is placing upwards pressure on price.  According to Rightmove, the average asking price of property coming to market in England is up by 1.9%, compared to March before the housing market was put on hold.  These trends are supported by data from Zoopla which has recorded a 54% increase in demand since the start of March, with demand for higher value homes increasing at a higher rate as homeowners look at trading up for more space or moving to a better location.

What our clients say about us

Testimonials
Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.  It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared.”Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.

"We put our property on the market with Premier just prior to lockdown but subsequently withdrew it. We were very happy with how Alan handled the situation at that time as well as the marketing. We originally went to them through the recommendation of a mortgage consultant.

We loved the Facebook countdown! The photography and virtual tour were first class. The photographer obviously took a great pride in her work and the results spoke for themselves.

You contacted people who had shown an interest in similar properties and we actually had 3 viewings booked before it was released. Bartek did wonderfully well in convincing the buyer what to offer.

The service was excellent in particular Bartek who showed potential buyers around and Alan who offered great advice on the deal.

This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Overall, we felt very pleased and relieved.

Would certainly recommend. Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.

It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared."

"Great to deal with, nice people and on the ball. We had an ex-rental property to sell, and had to decide whether to 'love it' or 'list it' in it's current condition. Katie & Alan were great and understood our situation, we decided to try the property on the market and discussed a fair price for the 'list it' option.

All went well and the property sold quickly.  Can't thank them enough for their advice and support.  Felt happy and looked after.  Would definitely recommend this company and would use them again."
