With over 14 years in business and over 1,600 properties under our management, our award-winning team can help investors buy investment property in Edinburgh. We get a huge thrill from helping investors secure great properties, demystifying the investment buying process and sharing our experience and knowledge of the Edinburgh market.
Umega support for Investors
For investors happy and able to source and inspect properties themselves we offer free support, on hand to provide advice and rental valuations whenever required.
Our focus is on helping investors buy great properties so that they become part of the Umega family and we can build successful long-term relationships.
Third party sourcing agent
For investors based outside of Edinburgh or those unable to carry out their own search and inspections we work closely with a third-party sourcing agent who takes care of the entire sourcing process on behalf of investors.
This includes shortlisting, inspecting, appraising properties and making recommendations to offer before charging a fee, normally equal to 1% of the purchase price once a property is secured.
