Home Report East Kilbride
When selling in East Kilbride, a thorough and competent home report is essential. Not only are home reports required by law in Scotland, but they can take a good deal of the stress out of the process, ensuring everything has been accounted for and there are no surprise issues awaiting the buyer after the property has been purchased. And when it comes to compiling a home report that is thorough, competent and competitive, a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) regulated surveyor with a deep knowledge of the area and a local office are essential criteria. Luckily, Shepherd Chartered Surveyors tick all these boxes, offering you the most competitive home report available in East Kilbride.

Buying in East Kilbride
An amazing feat of post-war urban planning, the new town of East Kilbride, built in the 1950s to provide spacious and clean living for the residents of the then-overcrowded Glasgow, is still well known for the large open spaces and parkland which have made it a popular Glasgow commuter town. Located just 8 miles from Glasgow, and with excellent train and bus links straight into the city centre, East Kilbride has long been a great place for those working in Glasgow but wishing to live or raise children a little further out. Although the majority of East Kilbride’s housing stock is of the immediate post-war variety, new developments and estates in the town have been almost constantly cropping up, with no shortage of space surrounding the ever-growing town in South Lanarkshire. Although largely modern, East Kilbride does have a small historic area – known affectionately as the East Kilbride “village” – and, on the approach to Glasgow, East Kilbride is close to the historic town of Rutherglen, which is today all but a part of the city. Although primarily a commuter town, East Kilbride has plenty of local amenities and services, including the extensive East Kilbride shopping centre, which attracts shoppers from near and far, the Dollan swimming baths and a popular ice rink.
The property market in East Kilbride has registered consistent and steady increases year on year and can be expected to continue to perform, with new developments lending vigour to the market.
