Property PR experts at Holyrood PR showcase Braemore’s wide success throughout June.

Leading Property Management Firm Braemore has explained to the The Metro newspaper that it is a great time for renters to lease property in Scotland.

The Edinburgh firm featured expert quotes from Braemore Director, Collete Murphy, who told the newspaper that rental prices have dropped due to the fact home owners are unable to sell their properties and are having to let them instead.

Andrew Markham, head of Braemore Property Management’s, also offered advice to first time landlords on how to best to prepare property for the rental market.

He told the Metro: “Don’t overspend if your property is small, as you won’t make the cost of a £30,000 makeover on a £100,000 flat.”

The full story appeared in the Metro and was the result of a proactive media campaign by the Holyrood PR, which provides expert PR advice in Scotland.

Edinburgh’s top lettings agent Braemore Property Management has been celebrating after securing another prestigious piece of coverage in the prestigious My First Home website.

The news portal, which provides updates about the UK’s property market, reported on a story from Braemore about how rent prices were falling across Edinburgh due to the emergence of “reluctant” landlords in the city.

The firm, which manages more than 850 properties in Edinburgh, highlighted that rents had fallen by £50 over the three months between January and March. It added that the falls were due to “reluctant” landlords – people who had bought a new property without selling their old one – putting homes up for let in the city.

The full coverage appeared in My First Home and came as the result of a dedicated media push by Holyrood PR PR in Scotland.

A leading online property news website has featured a response from Braemore Property Management to a recent report from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).

Sold Out online, which gathers property news from around the UK, ran a story about how Braemore responded to CML figures showing that buy-to-let landlords are losing their properties at over three times the rate of other homeowners.

Director Colette Murphy said that there was “no question” that buy-to-let landlords were currently suffering from the economic conditions – particularly if they invested in property over the last few years with the minimum of down payment. However, she added that it was still a smart move to invest in bricks and mortar if investors could can afford to do so in the current climate, as they were likely to make a significant return in the long run.

The full coverage appeared in Sold Out online and came following a proactive push by Scottish media experts Holyrood PR PR in Edinburgh.

Braemore Property Management has received a new PR success after being featured in influential property news blog My First Home.

The website, which features property news from across the UK, reported on how high-end properties let by the firm were continuing to perform well in the cuurrent economic downturn.

Braemore Property Management, which is Edinburgh’s leading letting agent, said that high-end properties were continuing to attract tenants and secure good rent levels despite the downturn in the market. The firm said that many executives and business workers were relocating to Edinburgh but were reluctant to buy another home – as they often had another property elsewhere in the UK that they haven’t yet sold – so were turning to renting instead.

The full coverage appeared in My First Home and was highlighted by Edinburgh media experts Holyrood PR PR in Scotland.
