Clyde Property Edinburgh has had another success story last week after agreeing the let on a beautiful Victorian townhouse.

An Incredible House

The property’s landlord had had the three-bedroom flat on the market with another letting agency since August with very little interest. This was despite the rent being set at £2200 a month which is below the average for a flat of this size in the capital.

Nicholas Scott, Clyde Property Edinburgh’s Area Letting Manager, visited the property in Bruntsfield and was surprised by how impressive it really was. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac, it is hard to believe that the property is a mere 10 minutes from the city center. The flat features a private south facing balcony which overlooks Bruntsfield links – a feature which adds to its vintage charm.

Edinburgh Housing Market

70% of all houses and flats to rent in Edinburgh now let within a month so Nick Scott, our Letting Area Director was surprised that such a spectacular property was still available.  “The Edinburgh rental market has risen by 28% in the last 5 years and is likely to continue going up.” Scott explained.

Clyde Property Marketing Package

After making some recommendations on how they could generate some interest, Nick Scott decided to offer the property both furnished and unfurnished, take new photos for the Clyde Property website and market it at £2400 per calendar month.


The Clyde Property Edinburgh team moved quickly and the overhaul of the flat’s brochure took less than a week.  The flat was advertised with Clyde Property for merely 24 hours before a let being agreed. The final let was set at £2500 per month.
