Frequently Asked Questions

Below are our most frequently asked questions as a buying agency.

Property search agents or ‘buying agents’ act exclusively for purchasers in their quest to acquire a particular type of property. We can help you in your search for your dream home, second home, investment or development opportunity. 

Conversely, Estate Agents act on behalf of the vendor, with the vendor’s interests at the heart of the transaction, to achieve a property sale.

Traditionally purchasers have been un-represented in the market, which makes little sense considering it’s often the largest financial commitment people make. It is therefore advisable to be represented by a professional and skilled buying agent like Strang & Co. We can help ensure that any property you decide to buy is not only bought at the right price but that your personal and investment objectives are met.

Choosing Strang & Co Means…

  • Working with property search agents, who are pragmatic, helpful and always aim to reduce your stress during the process – and hopefully have a laugh along the way! 

We work on the basis of an initial registration fee, which covers an agreed minimum period, typically for 6 months of search. Upon the successful acquisition of a property, we then charge a % commission, based on the purchase price of the property. We will then deduct the registration fee from the success fee. 

Some clients prefer to agree to a fixed fee with us from the outset, which we can also discuss with you if this is preferable. 

Please do not hesitate to call or email us to discuss finding a property and our fees.
