He left in 1995 to establish Ballantynes Perth office. From this office in Perth he has developed a UK wide general practice surveyors business working throughout the UK for a wide range of private clients and public bodies. In addition for 8 years he was a Director of a leading privately owned UK Waste Management Company.

      Why Choose our Award Winning Estate Agency?

      Having grown from a diverse family run business where professionalism and reputation mean everything, we have grown our brand into one of the most respected within the industry. Our philosophy is that when you start a business you either do something new or you do it better, and quite simply we believe we do it better! With our qualified and extensive buyer database, we make sure we give your property the best possible chance of selling in the least possible time.

      HIGH QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHY AND BROCHURES

      It is our priority to ensure that every single property is presented at its very best. Regardless of price, our high-quality property images, floor plans (together with total square footage) and location maps are produced with each sale and go into making an eye-catching brochure for your home. Many agents and solicitors in Scotland fail to display high quality brochures and floor plans which help buyers to better visualise your home. Buyers now expect to see a clear property layout, whether reviewing a hard copy brochure or browsing on the internet. It is our attention to detail which helps to set us apart from many of our competitors in the market today.

      ADVERTISING BOARDS

      You will have no doubt spotted one of our For Sale or To Let boards. We place our boards specifically to capture the most attention and in some cases, we have a few boards displayed around the property/grounds. Boards are useful for capturing the passing traffic, who then visit Ballantynes.uk.com to find your property.

      MAXIMUM EXPOSURE

      Our expert team proactively markets your home to prospective buyers by telephone, post, e-mail and on all major property portals (incl. Rightmove, Zoopla, PrimeLocation, s1Homes, OnTheMarket and a whole host of others along with Ballantynes.uk.com). Along with access to local property publications and our offices in Edinburgh and Perth, we ensure that your home is exposed to the widest possible audience.

      FULLY MANAGED SERVICE

      We provide a dynamic approach to all our client's property requirements, providing a friendly, personalised and tailored professional service. The agent you meet with at the point of discussing the sale of your property, will be the agent you deal with up until the point of sale. Backed by our expert team, you will be kept fully up to speed with all activity.

      BUYERS DATABASE AND NETWORK OF CONTACTS

      Our vast experience within the industry means that our contacts range from individual owner occupiers, to buy to let investors, to high net worth individuals, to multi-national corporations. The first people to find out about properties we list are the people registered with Ballantynes. Even before the property hits the wider market. So, we can effectively start building interest shortly after the point of instruction.

      VIEWINGS AND INSPECTIONS COVERED

      Our sales team is able to arrange to visit your property to better understand your homes unique selling features. Our team both show the property and follow up for feedback. The idea is to create urgency which will breed competition which, helps us achieve the highest possible prices. We take the responsibility of selling your home off of your shoulders. Having gained a thorough understanding of the property and your requirements we are then in the best possible position to find the right buyers.

      INTRODUCING 360 | VR TOURS

      Each property listed has the option of adding in a 360* high definition virtual tour to the online advertising, which live-away buyers can access on their computers or smart devices. For the many overseas investors or those looking to buy into the Scottish market, this is a solution to viewers to tour the property without leaving the comfort of their own home.

      Why Not Consider a New Build Home?

      Everyone will have their own specific reasons as to why they prefer a new build property. For some it offers the opportunity to own a property that has not been lived in previously. For others it may well be the additional benefits and reduced maintenance that comes with a new build.

      The fact is that new build homes are built to modern building regulations and from the perspective of fuel efficiency and eco friendliness will save you money in terms of fuel savings and maintenance.

      The reality is that as much as 50% can be saved in the running costs of a new build property compared to an older property, due to the inherent integrated improvements in insulation and energy efficient appliances such as central heating and water systems.

      Security is also a benefit, with enhanced specifications and regulations now incorporating fire and smoke alarms as standard. Multi lock door and window systems further enhance the security element.

      Another factor is that a new build home also comes with a comprehensive 10 year NHBC warranty.

      If you are interested in a New Build Home please feel free to call our office on 0131 459 2222 and ask for Gordon McKenzie, our Director of New Homes.
