All properties being put on the market in Scotland now require a home report by law. An expertly compiled and thorough home report can be invaluable when it comes to selling a property.

Doing so ensures there are no nasty surprises in store, offering complete peace of mind and making sure that everything has been accounted for.

Buying in Perth
Dubbed the “Fair City” by the great Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott, Perth is a town which does much to earn this epithet. Perth is situated on the banks of the River Tay within the beautiful historical county of Perthshire. Coming to prominence a centre of trade in the 12th century, Perth has long held an eminent position amongst Scottish burghs. Well connected to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, Perth is also surrounded by much of idyllic rural Perthshire and is often known as the “gateway to the highlands”.
Perth has a traditional market town layout and many historical landmarks, both of which contribute so strongly to this town’s immense liveability. Along the waterfront, there are many beautiful buildings of which the stunning church of St. John the Baptist is but one. Perth tends to fan out from here in a similar style, though there is also much attractive modern development in the town. In February 2020, for example, plans were unveiled for a massive development scheme known as Perth West. Situated on the western outskirts of the city, this scheme is projected to create a whopping 1,600 homes and 1,000 new jobs.
Perth exhibits a thriving local economy and is a noted transport hub, with great connections to areas all around Scotland. Perth and Kinross Council is headquartered in the city and is the town’s largest employer. Perth has attracted attention for the quality of its restaurants and eateries and was voted “Scotland’s Food Town” in 2018. The town exhibits a highly diversified economy, with several industries being represented there.
In terms of property types, Perth bears testament to its long history as a prosperous town with many properties from the Victorian age (and even before) around the town. Yet continued development means that the city boasts much modern housing stock as well, such as modern flats, terraces, bungalows and semi-detached properties.
The average price for property in Perth stood at £205,749 in January 2023. Though different property types in Perth have had different average selling prices over the last 12 months: £334,764 for detached properties, £207,797 for semi-detached, £162,055 for terraced, and £104,618 for flats.
