It’s an exciting time buying a property. Whether it is your first home, family home or an investment, Braemore Estate Agency have positioned ourselves to help in every step with the Edinburgh market. 

As most people are aware, it’s a major financial commitment buying a property, and making sure you have the right advice is crucial before you start your search. Braemore Estate Agency has a sister company in Lomond Mortgage Services that would be delighted to assist you in finding the right mortgage deal. 

Lomond Mortgages can be reached by dialling 0131 500 0983 or visit their site here

Once you’ve sorted your finance out, it’s time to start your new home search. Braemore have a great selection of homes in Edinburgh, the Lothian’s and Fife, or you may wish to broaden your horizon and see the UK’s No1 portal Rightmove for properties in Edinburgh.

Your online search will help you find some places that you would like, and of course the next step is to arrange a viewing. If you can’t find a property on our website that suits, don’t despair. Contact us to tell us what you are looking for and we’ll add you to our mailing list for future possible listings and we may also have a property that hasn’t quite reached the open market yet. Email for more information or list your requirements.

Once you’ve found your dream home, make sure that you read the Home Report. The Home Report contains a single survey and energy report provided by a charted surveyor, as well as a property questionnaire. This report provides you with an overview of the properties current condition, a valuation price as well as details of accessibility and energy efficiency.

It’s now time to make an offer or note interest on the property you’re interested in. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, Braemore Estate Agency can organise this for you, as we have links with numerous local solicitors. Email Scott Webster for more information or call 0131 525 6605.

Your solicitor will discuss the legal aspect of the house/flat purchase with you and once you have had your offer accepted will work towards concluding the “missives” via letters with the sellers/vendors solicitor. You are legally obliged to pay for the property on the agreed date once the missives have been concluded.

You’re now the owner of your new home. Enjoy!
