Buyer's Guide

Why buy through Strats?

As our areas leading estate agent, our registered buyers can be assured they will be the first to know when a property is about to come onto the market. Our extensive property portfolio bring buyers a vast range of properties straight to their inboxes and gives unparalleled access to the area’s most sought after properties.

With our wealth of local knowledge, Strats buyers can be confident that our experienced team will have valued all properties realistically and that property information is accurate and not misleading. Our sales staff make every effort possible to find our buyers their perfect home and offer honest and expert advice on all aspects of the process.

We take the time to explain each step of the sales process in person and never leave our buyers in the dark. We don’t bombard our buyers with industry speak but offer sound helpful advice and information on:

  • Making an Offer
  • Obtaining a Mortgage
  • Instructing a Solicitor
  • Surveys
  • Exchanging Contracts
  • Agreeing Completion Date
  • Conveyancing
  • Stamp Duty
  • Deeds / Land Registry
  • Completion

Although we don’t do mortgages, we work closely with two mortgage brokers that can assist buyers in securing the ideal mortgage to fit their needs and circumstances. We are happy to arrange a completely confidential, no obligation meeting with one of our recommended brokers.

We pride ourselves on our ethical values and operate under a strict code of conduct. As members of the Property Ombudsman service, we ensure both clients and buyers are treated fairly and professionally.

We believe that looking after our buyers is as important as taking care of our vendor’s needs. Failing to do so results in sales falling through and all parties being let down. Our long established business has been built on our reputation and by going the extra mile for both clients and vendors our ever increasing list of satisfied clients and buyers have ensured our good name is a byword for property sales in our area.
