Leading legal, financial and property specialists Pagan Osborne was overwhelmed by interest in its first-ever ‘Pop-up Property Shop’ at the Pittenweem Arts Festival.
Pagan Osborne staff handed out more than 100 property lists to interested visitors to the festival.
Linda Black, Fife property manager at Pagan Osborne, said:
“We were astonished by the interest at our first-ever Pop-Up Property Shop. On the first evening, we were only halfway through putting our property cards in the window and we already had an audience of people very interested to see about the region’s property.
“There was a fantastic buzz and we welcomed droves of people into the property shop.
“Our clients were very happy we were being so proactive in terms of marketing their properties and it was a great opportunity for us to connect with the community in Pittenweem and visitors to the festival.”
The festival normally brings around 25,000 people and that’s why Pagan Osborne decided to bring their clients’ homes to the market, rather than wait for the market to come to them.
“We know that thousands of people descend upon Pittenweem for the festival and there will be those amongst them who have either already fallen in love with the East Neuk or will on this trip.
“The East Neuk is full of hidden gems and this is a novel way for us to unearth them and bring them to the attention of those who may be looking to move to the area – whether that is to buy a holiday home, retire, become a resident artist or just use as a commuter base. We were happy to show some of our houses for sale and also enjoyed talking with our local residents some of whom were looking for practical advice on selling their own properties.”
In-keeping with the event, the Pagan Osborne property team also ran an art competition for children. The judging will take place this week with the winner receiving an art related prize.
Pagan Osborne will host another Pop-Up Property Shop in Elie on August 25th and 26th.
