How we market property
Our marketing is eye-catching and stylish. It has become well recognised in the Edinburgh area and is synonymous with high quality property.
Each of our marketing campaigns is individually tailored to the property and budget available and uses a diverse range of tools to ensure that your property gets noticed:
You will have access to all of your property information via our stylish Client Login. Available 24/7, the client login allows you to keep track of activity on your property at a time that's convenient to you. Information includes website traffic, brochure and home report downloads, viewing feedback and notes of interest. You can find out more here.
Professional photographs and floorplans
Photographs of your property are one of the most important aspects of a marketing campaign.
They’ll be seen in different places such as the web, sales particulars, press, ESPC etc. It is therefore essential that they are of the highest standard.
Because it’s the photographs that are likely to make potential buyers view your property, we use professional photographers to ensure that they are presented perfectly - with the correct light and features highlighted.
Our highly trained photographers also create detailed floorplans for use on our particulars and website. Our floorplans show the room layouts and provide dimensions which we know are very useful for buyers. See an example of a Floorplan.
With the current physical viewing restrictions in place there has been more need for virtual viewing options. Our virtual viewing videos allow viewers to see inside a property without leaving their own home. They show the flow of a property and capture areas photos may not always show. These can also be used on social media for sharing as they give a glimpse of the lifestyle in a short, punchy and shareable video making it perfect for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. See the fantastic videos we have produced so far.
Your sales particulars are another important part of how we will market your property. Your property will have its own uniquely designed particulars to make sure its shown to potential buyers at its very best. We offer a wide choice of designs and finishes to suit different properties.
An electronic version of our sales particulars is also available with each property listed on our website.

We are members of the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre ESPC, which means that all of our properties are displayed on the espc.com website, which receives over 1.2 million visits per month.
7/10 sellers in the area choose to market their property through the ESPC so it's where the majority of local properties appear. In addition 6 times more buyers start their search with ESPC than the nearest competitor.
Over 80% of buyers are from the local EH postcode area therefore it's essential to get your local marketing right.
Our properties are also displayed in the ESPC showroom on George Street and in the ESPC Paper.

Links on our website also allow clients to share their property with their own contacts via Social Media. Your property can also be listed on the highly visible national portals Rightmove and OnTheMarket.
For a wide variety of reasons, many of the properties we successfully sell never go on the open market. We have a large database of potential buyers who receive regular updates from us when new off-market properties become available.
