Home Report Dumbarton
A thorough and rigorous home report can be invaluable when it comes to selling a property. Home reports for all properties being sold are required by law in Scotland and give potential buyers a solid reckoning of all the important details regarding a property. When it comes to providing a home report, a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) regulated surveyor, a deep knowledge of the local area and a nearby office are all essential criteria. If you’re selling in Dumbarton or the surrounding area, including Argyle, then Shepherd Chartered Surveyors ticks all boxes.

Buying in Dumbarton
Our office, centrally located on Dumbarton’s High Street, is situated right at the heart of one of the most beautiful yet well-connected areas in Scotland. The area of West Dumbartonshire covers the several small villages and towns along the Vale of Leven such as Alexandria and Renton, as well as Balloch, the picturesque village at the foot of Loch Lomond, and Helensburgh, the attractive seaside town by the Firth of Clyde. West Dumbartonshire also includes Clydebank, which begins the unbroken urban area leading into the heart of Glasgow. This large area, with the stunning Loch Lomond and The Trossachs national park just on its doorstep, is very well-connected to heart of Scotland’s largest city. With train lines running through all of the aforementioned towns and villages, Glasgow is never more than 40 minutes away. Such easy commuting distances is one of the several reasons buyers choose to settle in towns like Balloch, Helensburgh or Alexandria, but there’s much to recommend them beyond such convenience.
Dumbarton itself can claim to be one of the most ancient habitations in Britain, and this shows in the rich array of historical treasures within the town. Dumbarton Castle situated on the famous Dumbarton rock is a common tourist attraction and the beautiful Overtoun House is one of the finest Scots Baronial style mansions anywhere in the country. The town has a good variety of the property styles, from modern flats to traditional terraces and semi-detached properties.
Helensburgh is a popular seaside town with a good array of traditional style properties. Attractive sea-front properties along the town’s famous beach have long been admired, and the town itself has the same range of the property styles as Dumbarton. Both towns, as well as small settlements which surround them, are known for the fantastic access to all the natural and historical sights which the whole region is famous for.
Clydebank exhibits the familiar cityscapes of Glasgow’s western outskirts and is retains much to suggest its past as a centre of shipbuilding. The town is a very short commute from central Glasgow and has great connections to most of the city’s transport routes.
Although the region has exhibited something of a slowdown in recent months (Dumbarton and Helensburgh have exhibited over the last year a 1.41% and 0.65% average property price decrease respectively) the area’s commuter links to Glasgow and outstanding natural and historical value are benefits which are here to stay. As of December 2019, the average house price in Dumbarton currently stands at £174,199 and in Helensburgh at £146,253. These prices are traditionally a good gauge of the whole area.
Shepherd’s Dumbarton office also covers the historic county of Argyll, most famous perhaps for Oban, an exceptionally picturesque town far up the West Coast. This is a very in-demand area with average house prices, as of November 2019, standing at £201,354, an impressive increase of 4.76% from September to November of 2019.
