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, planning the dream and expanding the portfolio
We understand that buy to let can seem a little daunting and we therefore ensure that we assist our clients at every stage of the process and remove as much risk as possible; from finding the very best property through to getting everything ‘rental ready’ we provide accurate advice, access to trusted contractors and a single point of contact to offer support every step of the way.
Property has experienced both boom and bust periods and there have been recent changes to both stamp duty and tax relief o nrental income 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 will mostrobably be paying 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.
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 simpliy 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!
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.
