Our Services - Private Sales

In the last 10 years Rettie & Co. have privately sold properties totalling approximately £300m and at the height of the market we sold £70m in one year. Our average sale price is £1.2m, which would traditionally be for a family, detached or semi-detached home in Edinburgh.

Over the last two years, private sales have been weaker in the current economic climate, however Rettie & Co. are now seeing a noticeable increase in the private marketplace, fuelled in part by a lack of supply in the property market which encourages buyers to secure property on a private basis. Over the last year our database of applicants registering for a private sale in our core markets has almost trebled.

Private sales do not come onto the open market, so there is usually no advertising or internet presence. The principal benefit of a private sale is that it is discreet and usually a quick and stress-free process for both the seller and buyer. Rettie & Co. sell direct to our registered applicants, providing them with the opportunity to purchase a property without competing against others at a closing date. Our database contains details of over 5,000 active buyers and provides us with a focused way to pursue individuals who can be matched with your property. If you are looking for a premium property click here to contact a member of the team - tell us what you are looking for and we can let you know if anything suitable comes up for sale.
