This year has been yet another exceptionally busy year for our Clyde Perth branch. In general the market has remained buoyant despite the ongoing political turmoil. Differing price points and locations however have performed very differently. The sub £200,000 market has been robust with high levels of buyers and the majority of property selling well within 2-3 weeks. Between £200,000 – £325,000 there is good demand especially within the more popular areas of Perth including Oakbank, Craigie and Kinnoull, with Scone and Auchterarder markets also performing well. As the value of property rises the level of buyers noticeably falls away […]

We have bought and sold a number of houses in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne and here in Perth, Scotland. The service we received from the staff at Clyde Property in Perth was first class. These people are highly competent, hard working and caring. You can't ask for more. Companies are only as good as their people and these people are the best.
Perth staff helped me get my forever home by the sea. Couldn't have done it without their expertise, professionalism and and sound sense!! Thank you!!
I can't fault the service
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Tara, Derek and the Clyde team for all your help and persistence in the sale of my wee flat. It's been very much appreciated. I can't fault the service I have received!
An amazing job
Clyde Property have done an amazing job with the marketing and selling of my property. From the very first viewing to conclusion of missives, Clyde’s team were extremely professional and kept me informed every step of the way.
If you are thinking of selling your house, Clyde is definitely the company to go with. Their marketing package is excellent and their team is an absolute pleasure to deal with.
"Professional and friendly"
We sold our property through Clyde Property and were extremely pleased with the service.
Professional and friendly are the words which spring to mind as well as attention to detail.
There was no hint of ‘hard sell’ and throughout the sale they were always helpful and available .
We would have no hesitation in recommending them if you are thinking of selling your property.
We spoke to a few agents in Perth before settling on Clyde, I’m glad we did. The advertising package and services were far superior to anything we’d seen before. This was backed up by tireless enthusiasm from Tara and her team which ensured we secured a good sale in a difficult market.
