Kirkcaldy is Fife's largest town sitting on the banks of the Firth Of Forth approximately 18 miles North of Edinburgh. Kirkcaldy was originally known as the "Lang Toun" and has expanded nearly 4 miles.
Kirkcaldy has seen a healthy residential market overall. As it has such a diverse range of properties, the presentation of your property is crucial in order to obtain a top price. We have found properties throughout all price ranges, which have a "move-in condition" look, have achieved their maximum price with very quick offers being achieved. From flats to ex local authority, 2/3 bedroom terraced/semi detached up to large detached. So call us to have a chat in how to present your property to obtain its maximum potential.
As with the property market the type of resident within Kirkcaldy is just as diverse, due to the wide range of properties which is always available. Our buyers have never been specific to age or profession. However they are becoming more discerning and their buying choice is definitely influenced by the presentation of the property independent of the asking price. We attract local residents from the town itself, surrounding villages and as our branch network is completely interlinked we do have many branches that can also sell our properties. Not forgetting it's only a 30 minute train journey to Scotland's capital.
Kirkcaldy's most famous resident was the economist Adam Smith with Gordon Brown and also David Steele (our local politicians) hailing from Kirkcaldy. Architect designer Robert Adam came from Kirkcaldy along with Scottish crime writer Val McDermid.
