Morton Fraser Perspectives are a series of round table discussions hosted by Morton Fraser and led by interesting commentators to help inform and provoke thinking around what is happening in the Firm's markets.

Whilst the purpose of these sessions is primarily to make sure that Morton Fraser's partners are well informed of what is happening in the economy, politics and society, they also involve selected clients and contacts.

In this Perspectives event Paul Hilton and David Marshall from the ESPC set the scene of the current residential property market. With 9 out of 10 home-owners using the ESPC to sell their property in Edinburgh, and 8 out of 10 people starting their new home search with the ESPC, they are uniquely placed to talk about buyer and seller activity. They share their knowledge on how best to secure the price you want and provide insights in to the buy-to-let market as well as the problems facing first-time buyers.

Our guests follow Paul and David’s talk with a lively debate which touches on equity-share purchases, private sell websites, the problem with stamp duty and statutory notices, and finally asks ‘are home reports working?’.
