Home Report Motherwell
A thorough home report can be invaluable when it comes to selling a property. Home reports are now required by law in Scotland for all properties going on the market and are there to give buyers and sellers alike a solid reckoning of all the important details ahead of any sale. Having this safely accounted for can take the stress out of property transactions, ensuring there are no nasty surprises in store for the buyer and giving the seller proof of having sold their property honestly and legally.
With home reports, a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) regulated surveyor with a deep knowledge of the local area and a nearby office is a must. And if you’re selling in Motherwell or nearby North Lanarkshire towns, then Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has what you need.

Buying in Motherwell
Some charming tales of an ancient Roman Road and the locally famous “Mother’s Well”, which gave the town its name, aside, the history of Motherwell is really one that begins during Scotland’s great industrial revolution. Motherwell developed as a town, like many in North Lanarkshire, thanks to the vital steel and mining industries in the area, which, along with towns such as Coatbridge, Airdrie and Wishaw, provided Glasgow with the much-needed materials for its own industries.
Today, the town bears the mark of this industrial past both in its property types and its excellent road and rail links to Glasgow. These days Motherwell is a popular commuter town for those working in Scotland’s largest city as well as the location of a thriving local service economy. Although typified by industrial-era buildings and post-war development, Motherwell also boasts more traditional landmarks such as the stunning Dalzell House and many natural attractions, with the Clyde Walkway and the Baron’s Haugh nature reserve.
As well being a popular commuter town, Motherwell is also an important administrative centre, being the location the headquarters of North Lanarkshire Council. Motherwell has had to come to terms with the decline of heavy industry in the area but today has a growing economy with several business parks appearing across the area. The site of the former Ravenscraig steelworks, often compared to a town for its sheer size, is soon to actually become one, with a massive development given the go-ahead by North Lanarkshire council, set to accommodate over 12,000 people.
The average price for property in Motherwell stood at £172,580 in January 2024. Though different property types in Motherwell have had different average selling prices over the last 12 months: £269,427 for detached properties, £183,479 for semi-detached, £129,480 for terraced, and £96,027 for flats.
