Media Release: Prospering in the property market recovery – CKD Galbraith Ayr seminar

LEADING independent property consultancy, CKD Galbraith, will host a discussion event in Ayr on 2 March on how to prosper during the property market recovery.

Says a spokesperson: “CKD Galbraith is experiencing an improvement in the residential housing market and as the economy recovers from the worst of the recession, there will be opportunities for all.

“A panel of experts from the firm will be highlighting some of the prospects which will be of interest to farmers, landowners and rural property owners. There will then be a question-and-answers session as well as the chance for guests to speak to the panel individually.”

The event speakers are as follows:

*  Tommy Loudon, CKD Galbraith

From an Ayrshire farming background, Tommy specialises in Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) grant applications. Tommy will provide an overview of the opportunities within the SRDP grant scheme and how to improve your chances of a successful application.

Simon will provide an update on the rural property market covering farms and farmland, together with the country residential and development markets.

*  Neil Wilson, Clydesdale Bank

Neil is a partner in the Treasury Solutions Department of the Clydesdale Bank in Glasgow and is also a farmer. Neil will be speaking about the fallout from the banking crisis, the reasons for the Banks’ present lending policies and likely future development.
