Bell Ingram: A special agent for your special property

When it comes to presenting your home for sale, a special property needs a special agent to navigate the market in these extraordinary times.

From market appraisal to conclusion of missives, Bell Ingram’s estate agents always go the extra mile to ensure your expectations are not just met but exceeded.

We have residential property teams in Perth, Beauly, Oban, Ayr, Aberdeen, Forfar, and Thirsk, covering Scotland and the North of England. Specialising in desirable rural properties, we also have extensive expertise selling farms, estates, crofts, commercial, lifestyle, plots and woodland.

So, whether it’s a grand Victorian shooting lodge or a high-end retirement apartment, a farmhouse with attached holiday cottage lets or an historic thatched island blackhouse, we are perfectly placed to find you the right buyer or the right property.

At Bell Ingram, our agents pride themselves on a highly personal approach, outstanding service and attention to detail. The high levels of staff retention also mean that our clients can be sure of dealing with highly qualified and experienced people at all times.

Drawing on over 100 years’ experience in the prime property market, we offer our clients an extensive database which provides relevant, comparable evidence for market appraisals when marketing properties and matching buyers to suitable homes.

And our in-depth understanding of regional and national markets enables our team to achieve the best possible result for your sale or purchase.

Head of Estate Agency Carl Warden says: “Bell Ingram’s estate agents have seen unprecedented housing market activity across Scotland during the last 18 months of the pandemic.

“High buyer demand coupled with a shortage of stock has driven up valuations with residential properties achieving anything between 5% to 30% over the asking price, and I expect this upward trend to continue.

“It’s 100% a sellers’ market at the moment with properties being snapped up within days of going live on the market, particularly if they are in desirable locations like Perth and Kinross, Highlands and Islands, or Argyll and Bute.”

The pandemic is also driving a race for space. Larger detached properties at the upper end of the market with plenty of outside space and spare room that could be used as an office are in high demand as hybrid and work-from-home changes mean buyers are no longer tied into city locations.

Carl Warden continues: “Lifestyle properties have also been attracting a lot of attention from buyers looking for a beautiful home with a business attached. Bell Ingram is currently marketing a number of such opportunities which tick all the boxes for purchasers wanting to quit the rat race for a new life in the country.

“The rise in house prices has meant buyers were able to pay off the LBTT due on properties above £400,000, with equity. And with interest rates expected to rise a little earlier than previously predicted, I’d advise buyers to take advantage of the current low rates,” he adds.
