Home Report Musselburgh

When it comes to buying or selling a property, a thorough, professional and rigorous home report can be essential. For all properties put on the market in Scotland, they’re required by law. Home reports are there to give buyer and seller alike total peace of mind, ensuring that all the important details have been accounted for ahead of any sale, offering assurance to the buyer that they’re getting what they pay for and comfort to the seller in terms of condition and value. When compiling a home report, a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyor’s (RICS) regulated surveyor with an in-depth knowledge of the local area and a nearby office are essential criteria. If you opt for Shepherd’s, you can be guaranteed this and more.

Buying in Musselburgh

Long known as the “Honest Toun” after a medieval story involving the devoted care of a Scottish nobleman by the people of the town, Musselburgh is a beautiful and historic town in East Lothian with much to suggest it’s long and storied history. Situated on the coast of the Firth of Forth, Musselburgh has a fine beach, much open green space and a true wealth of architecture.

Situated on the western edge of East Lothian (the town in fact used to lie in West Lothian), Musselburgh is a town which has saw quite extensive development around its historic core in the latter half of the twentieth century. This is a trend which has never really let up, and Musselburgh is attractive not only for its many landmarks – like Fisherow harbour, Musselburgh Racecourse and the stunning grounds of the prestigious Loretto school – but also for its close proximity to Edinburgh.

This nearness to the nation’s capital makes Musselburgh at once a popular commuter town as well as the host of a strong local economy as well. Musselburgh has the attraction of nationwide fame (the aforementioned racecourse for example) and its local prestigious schools (not only Loretto but also Musselburgh Grammar, one of the oldest grammar schools in the country) which drives jobs in the area. Housing development is also strong in Musselburgh, with recent developments such as proposed flats on the site of a former supermarket continuing a long trend of development and a buoyant property market in Musselburgh.

In terms of property types, Musselburgh bears testament to its long history and the eclectic development of more recent times. In Musselburgh, traditional properties such as granite terraces or sandstone tenements stand side-by-side with modern flats, bungalows and semi-detached properties.

As of March 2020, the average price of a property in Musselburgh stands at £205,754, which represents a 3.71% increase on the previous year and a surprising short-term fall of 0.22% since December of 2019. In terms of property types, flats in Musselburgh sold for an average of £154,476 and terraced houses for £221,183.
