Would you accept less for a local?!

Founded in 1985 to serve the local property market, we have over 35 years’ experience in the Estate Agency market and in that time, we have witnessed the historic highs and lows of property prices in our area.

We fully appreciate how difficult it can be for locals looking at buying in today’s market as the current demand in Badenoch and Strathspey has been steadily increasing since 2019 but after the first lockdown in March 2020 demand has dramatically increased. We have many first-time buyers looking to purchase their first home, couples looking at retiring to rural Scotland from all over the country and we’ve seen a surge in people looking for second homes or holiday let investment properties and all in all, this makes the market extremely buoyant but also quite difficult for local people to get a foot on the property ladder.

Over the last few months virtually every property we have listed goes to closing date which means in many cases locals are priced out of the market, but of late we are witnessing a new phenomenon with some vendors advising us of a preference to find buyers who are living and working in the area. This has resulted in us accepting offers that are thousands of pounds less the highest offer received because they want the property sold to local people living and working in the Cairngorm National Park. This is really encouraging as it shows that as a community we understand the current difficulties and Caledonia staff who all live and work in the strath are also doing our bit as local estate agents for residents in the area .
