Understanding fixed price listings

Metta Stockman


In a Scottish property market characterised by competitive bidding and fluctuating house prices, the landscape for sellers is evolving. Take a closer look at the increase of fixed price listings and their implications for both sellers and buyers:


Changing market dynamics in Scotland

Gone are the days of widespread overbidding and premium sale prices. While headlines once highlighted inflated property valuations, the market is now experiencing a shift towards more realistic pricing, aligning closer with Home Report valuations.


Benefits of Fixed Price listings

  • Instant budget indicator: Opting for a fixed price listing provides sellers with a clear understanding of their property’s value. This streamlines budgeting for onward purchases and speeds up the search for a new home.
  • Potential for speedier sale: Fixed price properties appeal to buyers seeking swift transactions, bypassing the complexities of closing dates and bidding wars. A straightforward offer and acceptance process can speed up the sale, making sellers more attractive to prospective buyers.
  • Stand-out property: In a competitive market, a fixed price listing can distinguish your property from others, attracting buyers with its transparent pricing and streamlined transaction process.


Embracing fixed price listings

While traditional offers-over pricing may still have its place, embracing fixed price listings offers sellers a viable alternative, particularly in slower markets. Refreshing online listings with fixed prices signals a commitment to selling and speeds up the journey to securing your next dream home.
