This property was a spacious second floor flat in a popular pocket in Dowanhill. It had been rented out for several years and was tired and empty which did not give a great first impression. Initial thought on value was in the region of £225,000. The client had a high profile job in Edinburgh and therefore did not have a lot of time to make any changes, hence Vanilla Square worked closely with Sienna Interiors to create the right design. In total the client spent around £12,000 on fresh décor, lighting improvements and renting some furniture to stage the property. An impressed surveyor set the Home Report at £265,000 and we launched to the market at Offers Over £230,000. Over a two week period Vanilla Square sourced 77 viewers and set a closing date whereby we received 18 written offers. Every one of the 18 offers were OVER the Home Report value with the top offer reaching just over £320,000- 20% over the Home Report valuation!
