What is the ESPC?

A property website

Before there were Rightmove, Zoopla and all the other property websites or portals there was the ESPC.

The ESPC website (espc.com) is where sellers in Edinburgh market their properties and where buyers go to look for properties. Because it is Edinburgh and Lothians based, the ESPC website is the best place for buyers to start looking for properties. And it has the added advantages that you can download the property schedules and the Home Reports for properties which is not always the case when searching for properties on other portals.

 

What does ESPC stand for?

ESPC stands for Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre.

Originally, when it first started (back in the 1970s) the ESPC was a shop where buyers could go to find out what properties were for sale in Edinburgh hence “Property Centre”). And although there is still the Property Centre in George St Edinburgh, people will know and visit the website more often than they would pop along to the Property Centre.

Also, it is worth mentioning that the ESPC is owned and funded by firms of solicitors in Edinburgh (and elsewhere in the Lothians etc) and only solicitor member firms are allowed to list their properties with the ESPC.

 

More than just a website

The ESPC has grown to be more than just a website for properties. You can also obtain mortgage advise, take advantage of their letting service, and they run events that are designed to give first time buyers an opportunity to find out more about buying.
