The Importance of ESPC advertising

The property market in Edinburgh is Unique.  You’ll find the majority of properties for sale listed through Solicitors rather than Estate Agents.  The benefit of this is having your estate agency and conveyancing handled under one roof. More importantly, only a Solicitor can list your property with espc.




Regarded as the main property portal for advertising properties for sale in Edinburgh and the Lothians, you’ll find more local properties advertised with espc than anywhere else – meaning buyers only need to look in one place to find their dream home.

Who are the espc

Founded in 1971, the espc (Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre) formed to give Solicitor Estate Agents a centralised place to advertise local properties for sale.

Advertising was initially carried out through the espc’s weekly list paper but they have changed with the times.  Thousands of properties are now also advertised for sale on their website and in their information centres.

Offering free advice, their friendly approachable staff can help with all aspects of buying or selling a property.  From offering independent mortgage advice through ESPC Mortgages, hosting a range of free property events. Providing an excellent matching service so you don’t miss out on your dream home, and up to date market reports. And if your looking for an investment property, their dedicated lettings service offer a full management service.  They really do have it covered.

Why advertise your property for sale on espc

Independent market research shows espc is where buyers and sellers look first.  Attracting 1,200,000 visitors per month, you’ll find more local properties advertised on than anywhere else.

House hunters are at the heart of their business and espc pride themselves on providing as much information as possible to assist buyers with their property search.  From having home reports available to download online, to providing a sold price search.  Publishing closing dates and providing an accurate list of school catchments.  They also run regular incentives for first time buyers to help them take that first step on the property ladder.

You’ll also find properties for sale on espc first with all their exclusives listings available 72 hours before they are advertised on any other site.

Sellers, you’ll be pleased to hear that espc agents can get you more.  Last year espc agents achieved 106% of their home report valuations. 3% higher than non espc agents.
