    Why choose Scottish Property Centre?
    • paragraph

      VALUATION

      Typically the first step for most people when they are thinking about selling their property is to arrange to have their property valued by a professional estate agent. When arranging a valuation with Scottish Property Centre you will meet with one of our Directors, Craig Smith or Gregor Cope, and not just a 'Valuer'. We feel this is vitally important and is the start of our dedicated personal service that we provide to all our clients. Scotland is a sole agency market, requiring a seller to commit to one agent, so it makes sense to pick carefully and choose someone you know you can work with on a personal level. That's why Craig or Gregor will be the first person you meet and be with you throughout the whole process.

      At the valuation appointment, our Directors will provide an honest and realistic market value for your property backed up by comparable and historic sales evidence. However, the valuation appointment should be about more than just providing you with a figure. It will be an excellent opportunity for any advice to be considered so that your property is presented in its best possible light before published live on the market. We will focus on highlighting your homes best features, the lifestyle it provides and also the surrounding area. And of course, we are there to answer any questions you may have about any part of the process or service we provide.

    • paragraph

      PRESENTATION

      As the saying goes, "A picture speaks a thousand words". We believe that our photography using professional equipment makes all the difference in generating buyer interest and ensuring they pick up the phone to enquire for a viewing. With high-quality online brochures that are available to download, your property will stand out against other listings. Premium print sales particulars are also supplied to impress buyers and leave a high quality lasting impression of your property.

      Furthermore, we have the added exposure of Virtual 3D Tours and HD Video Tours, which allows buyers to have a better understanding of the space and layout. This can also be outlined in our accurate 2D and 3D floor plans provided for every property.

    • paragraph

      DATABASE

      As an established estate agent, Scottish Property Centre Shawlands are able to match your property with a range of buyers from not only our own database but also that of the networks, which means your property can be sent to thousands of people and advertised to many more through the branch websites. Interested parties who have signed up to our database will automatically be sent your property and invited to book a viewing, giving you a head start in the selling process before you are even on the market.

    • paragraph

      MARKETING

      Scottish Property Centre prides itself on having a strong marketing presence, consistently reminding people of our brand and therefore, your property. As well as nationwide marketing such as radio campaigns and digital advertising, each branch is extremely pro-active in its local areas. Our saltire logo is instantly recognisable and not only will your For Sale Board obtain interest from people looking in the area, our brand will point them in the direction of our own website, prompting them to get in touch with our knowledgeable staff right away.

      In today's market, most enquiries come from potential buyers enquiring online as they browse on phone, tablet or laptop. In order to gain maximum exposure, in addition to our own website, your property benefits from appearing on UK wide property portals such as Rightmove. This means we ensure the maximum level of interest as soon as your property goes live online.

      We like to show how, as a business, we are entirely progressive in our approach to online marketing and we have been delighted to see what a strong following on social media we have been able to build. Through Propertybook, the interactive platform that allows buyers to easily search listings on Facebook and through the additional use of Twitter, we have increased the popularity of our site, driving more buyers to look at the properties we advertise. Unlike other agents, we will pro-actively use social media platforms to advertise your property, sponsoring your listing to reach targeted audiences.

    • paragraph

      COMMUNICATION

      Communication with our clients is of the utmost importance - and not just at the beginning. From the moment you decide to market your property with Scottish Property Centre Shawlands, your main point of contact will be the Company Director you met at the point of valuation. They will oversee the entire process and are always just a phone call away. Whether it is questions about your Home Report, an update on the market activity your property has had or advice on home presentation, get in touch and the appropriate person will be able to give you the most relevant advice as well as have an immediate understanding of where you are in the sale process. We will also email you a weekly report highlighting all the important stats including how many people have found your property in a search and how many have then actually clicked into the full details.

      In addition, before marketing commences we highly recommend our professional sales team all visit your property to become familiar with its selling points, layout and key features. This ensures anyone in the team can confidently discuss your property with potential buyers and is much more effective than just relying on reading details from a screen.

    • paragraph

      VIEWINGS

      All of our viewers are properly qualified before an appointment is organised, which can save you time, effort and any inconvenience. We find that our professional accompanied viewing service, undertaken by a Director, provides the least disruption to your own schedule and results in more honest and positive feedback, relayed back to you on the same day. Our Directors, who are able to expertly field any questions about the property and area from potential buyers, can take the time to find out more about their own situation and their thoughts on your home. Overall, this honest and reliable approach should take much of the stress out of the viewing process and result in a timely sale.

    • paragraph

      NEGOTIATING

      Once offers are received for your property, the importance of an experienced negotiator to advise you cannot be understated. With over 20 years' experience of negotiating on behalf of their clients you can have peace of mind that you will be in safe hands with directors Craig Smith and Gregor Cope. Our aim is to achieve the highest possible price for our clients.

    • paragraph

      REFERRAL SERVICES

      In order to ensure you receive the most preferential rates for the added costs of selling such as Home Reports and Legal Fees, we are able to communicate on your behalf with one of our recommended solicitors or chartered surveyors and put you in touch with them immediately. Further, our in-house independent mortgage advisor with access to the whole of the market is available so that you have a trusted guide during every step of the sale process. We hope to relieve you of the stress caused by not knowing who to turn to for advice and many of our past customers have found it much easier to have these services co-ordinated by our team at the office.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Incredible service. Constant support...
        Incredible service. Constant support whilst selling my property. Helpful, honest, trustworthy, ethical, prompt, knowledgeable and always on hand to offer advice, feedback and answer any questions. I feel that choosing this agency was a decision that meant I had less stress overall. - Mrs Tiffeny Finney, Strathbungo
      • Seller Testimonial

        Great service. Above all kept me informed...
        Great service and above all kept me informed about what was happening. Buying a house is stressful enough and at Scottish Property Centre they keep this to a minimum. - Mr Donaldson, Battlefield
      • Seller Testimonial

        I chose SPC over two other estate agents...
        I am very happy to say that your attention to me as a client in the advertising and subsequent sale of my house was excellent. I chose Scottish Property Centre over two other estate agents as I felt you offered a very personal sincere approach, which was professional but not intrusive. You also allowed me time to consider all aspects of whether to go ahead with the sale in the first place and did not rush me into any decisions. I appreciated this approach very much and therefore felt secure in going ahead with the sale, which is quite a daunting experience, because I trusted you. Thank you for all your attention and for a successful sale of course! - Mrs Traynor, Newton Mearns
      • Seller Testimonial

        You've pretty much got it down to a fine art!
        It was the most painless exercise in a long time! You never once promised something you didn't follow through on and communications before and after every viewing were excellent. You've pretty much got it down to a fine art! Thanks once again for a great service. - Mr & Mrs Morris, Shawlands
      • Seller Testimonial

        No hesitation in highly recommending you...
        The entire process was handled very professionally and I was most impressed with your thorough knowledge of the property market, your honest appraisal of the property, sound decision making regarding the asking price and the help with the viewings. A friend and a previous client recommended you to me and I will in turn have no hesitation in highly recommending you to anyone who requires the services of an Estate Agent. Thanks again for all your hard work resulting in a successful outcome. - Mr Finlayson, Langside
      • Seller Testimonial

        Kept me up to date on a regular basis...
        I needed to sell my house in Cathcart and asked the Scottish Property Centre in Shawlands to take care of all aspects. They were fantastic. The team took care of everything and did all the marketing and viewings, but kept me up to date on a regular basis by email and telephone. I didn't have to do a thing except sign over the deeds to the new owner. I can't thank all the staff at Scottish Property Centre enough for making this whole process easy for me. - Mr Scott, Cathcart
      • Seller Testimonial

        Simply the Best.
        "Simply The Best". Staff are so helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend. - Kristine Higgins, Strathbungo
