The matchmaker scheme aims to match empty property homeowners in Aberdeen who are trying to sell or who are thinking about selling, with people who want to buy an empty property.
Benefits for owners/sellers
- Free: It’s free to put the details of your property on the Matchmaker website, where it will be listed until you ask for it to be removed or when the property is sold.
- Increased exposure: The scheme increases the amount of exposure your property receives by highlighting it to visitors of Aberdeen City Council's website.
- Targeted marketing: The empty property will be seen by buyers who are specifically looking to acquire an empty home and who would often be willing to carry out renovation works.
- Non-exclusive: The property can remain for sale with an estate agent and the sale can continue through this agent.
Benefits for buyers
- Free: It is free to put your details on the Matchmaker website, allowing us to match you to suitable properties and owners.
- Opportunity for Investment: An empty home needing some renovation can provide an opportunity to buy at a more affordable price, increasing the possibility of making a profit through either renting the property out or selling it on at a later time.
- Vacant possession: An empty home gives the buyer the advantage of vacant possession, so you can start developing on the property as soon as you like.
Additional sellers, additional properties: Potential buyers can have their details passed on to sellers who they otherwise would have struggled to contact, potentially allowing access to properties not listed through commercial websites or estate agents. Additionally, if you are also interested in being notified of empty properties in other local authority areas, you can notify us of this through our Buyers’ Application form, and we will pass your details onto that authority’s empty homes Matchmaker Scheme.
