First there’s scaffolding (how I want I had invested in such a agency in some unspecified time in the future) and secondly there are For Sale indicators popping up in all places.
After all, there are all the time the same old suspects flogging flats and homes so once I began noticing a number of with a brand new title on them I used to be intrigued. Who have been MacGregor Property I puzzled. No must do a lot digging as of late, simply log into Google search and all the data I wanted.
Effectively, you can have knocked me over with a single use service bag once I noticed who was behind this new agency on the block. None apart from one Michael Hodgson who I labored with many moons in the past.
I all the time have utter respect for anybody who units up their very own firm – by no means thoughts that he went striding into an space that’s hardly under-represented in Edinburgh, however did so throughout lockdown nearly two years in the past. What Michael was providing was a service that you just don’t all the time get when shopping for or promoting a flat. That’s merely the one that candy talked you into utilizing their providers, being there all through the method. No handing you over to their assistant, or being too busy with somebody deemed extra necessary. And I like that when coping with massive selections.
Now, don’t get too excited – I’m not planning to maneuver any time quickly. Nevertheless, if I have been the report produced by MacGregor Property on the finish of 2021 would fill any of my neighbours with hope. In a single space costs rose by over 15 per cent final yr. That’s a heck of much more than you’ll get at any constructing society for certain. On high of that, as I learn additional, there at the moment are greater than 5000 properties price extra that £1m within the capital.
Evidently, I’m happy that I’m not having to search for a primary property, however like many relatively smug that I’m dwelling in my pension.
