Buy to Let 

Many people know that the origins of Strawberry lie within the lettings market but perhaps not so well known is the fact that we are specialists in the field of buy to let. With over 30 years of experience (spanning a vast range of market conditions) we know exactly what constitutes a good investment and how best to manage that asset in order to realise the full rental potential. 
 

Minimising the risk 

We understand that buy to let can seem a little daunting and we therefore ensure that we remove as much risk as possible and give the maximum support to our clients throughout the process via a dedicated single point of contact. 
 
The specialist service we offer to existing and would-be landlords utilises all the knowledge we have gained over our 30 years in the business and involves searching to find the right property (regardless whether it is on sale with Strawberry or with other agents), viewing upon your behalf, reporting on condition and potential, advising on the highest rental which could be achieved and looking at any additional work which could maximise yield even further – essentially everything from finding a property to getting it ‘top end’ rental ready. The greatness doesn’t even stop there. By matching your needs with one of our 4 landlord management packages we will continue to be there right beside you, looking after your interests and helping you to have as close to a stress-free let as is possible. 
 

Planning the dream 

Property has experienced both boom and bust periods but, despite this, it is still believed to be a sound medium to long term investment and we tend find that new landlords utilise it either as an additional income stream or a form of pension provision. In general terms, if you have 25% or more of the property value as your deposit, the tenant effectively pays your mortgage. With trusted professional financial advisors and low interest finance schemes there is also no longer a need to be a cash buyer, so with a little help from Strawberry the dream might be closer than you thought. 
 
Vickers Young are a company who we have found to be most helpful in assisting clients to identify both a realistic budget and the right mortgage product to secure their buy-to-let investment property. Even if you already have a specific provider in mind you may find the Vickers Young ‘mortgage finder ‘calculator useful in the initial stage of your search. This free to use tool reflects a significant proportion of the mortgage marketplace, is constantly updated and is mobile friendly.

Expanding the portfolio 

Even if you are an existing landlord and you are looking to expand your portfolio we can help. In addition to finding the right properties to compliment your existing collection we can offer you a landlord management service which will simplify the time consuming task of keeping everything in check. With a dedicated Strawberry portfolio manager and quarterly review meetings you remain in full control despite having just the minimum of involvement in the day to day chores associated with property letting. 
 
And all free of charge for Strawberry landlords and landlords-to-be! 
 

Completely free of charge 

So what cost for this invaluable service from Strawberry we hear you ask? Actually our property finding service in most cases is totally free of charge. For an initial fee of £250 we will find a suitable property, view it upon your behalf and provide a full report on our findings (including quotations for any necessary refurbishments). The full fee will be refunded to those clients who go on to buy their property and utilise the Strawberry management service – that’s the benefit of all those years of experience and letting ‘know how’ at no extra cost.
