As we approach the turn of the year the property market traditionally slows down as our clients start to look forward to Xmas and the thought of moving home is less appealing. That gives us time to look back on the year just gone - and to look forward to the exciting challenges that lie ahead for our member firms.
Despite the surprise of the Brexit vote and the predicted downturn in the national economy, the BSPC group has had another very successful year and has now been providing an under-one-roof combined estate agency and conveyancing service to loyal clients over 25 years. I am delighted to report it is still as popular now as it was when we set up in business way back in 1990.
While the search for a new home has changed greatly with the advent of the internet, the combination of a local property paper and a modern website containing details of several hundred Borders houses for sale or rent has never gone out of fashion. Just as with the local butchers and bakers, there is nothing to beat friendly and expert service from agents who know the local housing market like the back of their hand and live in the town in which they ply their trade.
Looking then to the future of property advertising on the net, the Solicitors’ Property Centre (SPC) brand is the largest single property network in the country with over 600 branches spread throughout Scotland. Plans are well advanced to re-launch the SPC Scotland national grouping with new and innovative branding and I fully expect to see the SPC Scotland site fast becoming one of the most popular websites in the country for house buyers. Keep an eye out for the new logos popping up in a BSPC branch in your own town early next year.
It is also still very much the case that our ongoing success is built on the loyalty of our many clients in Borders who have trusted us with the sale of their property in the past year. To everyone out there who has contributed to another successful year in 2016, my grateful thanks, and we look forward to even more of you coming on board in 2017 as we develop our presence across Scotland.
With our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
