What we do
We help investors through the whole buy to let process - all the way from sourcing the best on and off-market properties, making offers, overseeing the conveyancing process right through to hooking you up with the best letting agents in the market. We also offer renovation and furnishing services at truly competitive prices for clients who just don't want the hassle.
Put simply, we take all the stress out of it.
The Edinburgh Property market is renowned as one of the UK's top residential property investment hot spots with a vibrant professional and student demographic plus a world-beating tourist economy. It's hard to beat in terms of rental and capital growth prospects over the next 5-10 years.
We have access to both on and off-market opportunities built up through our strong relationships in the local Edinburgh property market
Initially we will arrange a phone/zoom meeting to talk through your requirements and budget. We will discus investment hot spots and then make recommendations on target areas and property type/expected rental demographic.
We then begin our search and will send you detailed reports on the properties that we recommend including full statements on condition, estimates of any necessary remedial work required, any relevant documentation including home report and rental certifications (if available) and an assessment of expected sales price, rental figures and yield calculations based on concise agent-only industry data.
We will then discus preferred properties in detail and help to formulate an offer. We are on hand throughout the offers process if necessary.
We can also introduce investors to an accountant, solicitor, financial advisor, insurance broker, letting agent or furnishing specialist so that our clients have a great team to help them through their investment purchasing journey.
After a successful offer we are there at every step of the Buy-to-Let process for any advice or support.

Investor, Dubai - September 2021
I got in touch with Dave from Property Bee after reading about their services through Umega with whom I had been working with after moving to the UAE with work and becoming an accidental landlord.
Kicked things off with an informal chat over zoom giving some info on what I was looking whilst Dave gave an overview of the current market, anticipated ROI and additional services (beyond the search and advice) that Property Bee could offer .
Within a couple of days Property Bee were providing reports from prospective properties including pros and cons .
Happy to report that within 3 and a half weeks of our initial zoom we successfully had an offer accepted on a fantastic property in Leith.
After securing the new property we were keen to turn it around and have it made ready and available to put on the rental market as soon as possible which is where again we turned to Dave and Property Bee who were fantastic in furnishing the place to a very high and cool standard all for a great rate.
Being overseas it was great to have someone like Dave in communication ,updating and providing us on every step of the way.
Within one day of the property going on the market we had received offers from 3 different tenants , 2 of whom had offered over and above the asking rental rate.
Highly recommended !

Small to Medium sized Rennovations

Project Management Fees charged at 15% of total cost of works up to £10,000. Thereafter fee charged at 10% for sum above £10,000 (first £10,000 charged at 15%)
Bespoke Cost Effective Furnishing
We do things a little differently at Property Bee; we don't think you need to break the bank to achieve a high-end aspirational look.
We are unique in that we source pre-loved, 'nearly new' high quality furniture from manufactures such as Made.com, Habitat, John Lewis and Next, saving you thousands off retail prices. You get the 'top-end' look for much less - and quality, longer lasting furniture.
Prices: 1 Bed flat: £2250
2 Bed flat: £2750
