    Planning is key for success in buying the right property at the best price in the west of Scotland.

    Firstly, do your homework and choose an area you like. The west of Scotland, while large, has many desirable areas within it. Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and has the city centre and the Merchant City, both of which have a cosmopolitan atmosphere with their retail, residential and professional districts. The West End and South Side both have more of a village within the city feel with many boutique shops, trendy café bars and restaurants. With good road networks and an excellent rail service, the Clyde coastline is readily commutable to and from Glasgow and offers scenic coastal living.

    Troon, Prestwick and Ayr have a delightful microclimate, quite warmer and drier than many other parts of west central Scotland. Rural Scotland is becoming increasingly sought after by lifestyle changers who are able to generate an income from Scotland as an increasingly popular tourist destination. High-speed internet has allowed many people to live in places of great natural scenic beauty while operating remotely from a central office.

    Key points worth considering include communication links such as the proximity to a rail, tube station or airport, the range of local amenities and the journey time to places of business and schools.

    What type of house is best for your circumstances: a city centre apartment, a detached house or a rural or coastal property? Discuss your requirements with members of our team and we will guide you towards your ideal home. We will help you create a 'shopping list' of features your property should or shouldn't have, no matter how unrealistic they may sound. Allow us to connect with you, together we can drill down into the detail of what is important to you for your dream home and we can begin to match your search criteria with the properties that we have available publicly and privately. The internet is an excellent research tool today; it allows you to look at the whole market and not just a snapshot from one particular agent.

    Offer from a position of strength and carefully consider your budget. In the current financial climate it will be wise to take steps via an advisor with the appropriate financial expertise to ensure that your funding is in place. We have a strategic alliance with an experienced firm of specialist mortgage brokers and financial planners and will be happy to introduce you to them in order that you can explore what opportunities are available in the mortgage market. If nothing else, this will allow you to contrast and compare options and to benchmark any offer that you may have from an existing lender. If your purchase is dependent on the sale of your current home then you should make arrangements to discuss this with us so that you can commence the marketing without delay. It will also be a good idea to let your solicitors know that you will shortly be requiring their services.

    Cash buyers, buyers with approved funds and offers from buyers whose purchase is not contingent on a sale will always be more attractive to vendors because they can proceed quickly. Robb Residential recognises that house buyers and sellers are often faced with the dilemma of not knowing whether to buy first or sell first: if you are unsure, please feel free to talk to us. Let's get together confidentially and informally over a cup of coffee where we will happily share our knowledge and experience with you, analyse your circumstances and offer you an intelligent solution designed to ensure that you are never compromised.

    Through discussion we can help you to create a mental timetable for your sale, purchase and intended moving date.

    When you have found your perfect property and would like to make an offer, if you do not already have an established solicitor relationship, Robb Residential can refer you to an appropriately experienced conveyancing solicitor who can draw up an offer on your behalf. Once an offer is made in Scottish legal form and is accepted in principle, the vendor's solicitors will send them a qualified acceptance and various official searches will be carried out including enquiries on planning to ensure nothing is in the pipeline that will affect the value of the property in the future and the Land Registry to establish legal title.

    When all the legal and planning matters are determined, missives are concluded and a binding contract is achieved with an agreed date of entry. The date of entry is when your purchase price is paid over to the vendor and you obtain the legal title and the keys. Your property purchase is then complete.
