The pricing of the property in the first stages is critical and we aim to achieve as much money as possible for you but at the same time not over pricing. Overpricing is the main reason properties do not sell so valuing accurately is priority, overpricing just to get your instruction isn’t a service we offer! Local knowledge, previous sales, current properties for sale are all used to get an achievable asking price for your house.
Our fee structure is a flexible system that will allow you to tailor a service that meets your own requirements. Friendly staff will be there for you as a point of reference should you feel you need a question answering. No matter what the question you can feel free to call or email us and we will try to assist in any way we can. Over our time in property we are very proud to receive 80% of our business through recommendations and repeat clients.
Having a show home also allows an opportunity to get more photos on listings and keep them refreshed and up to date and pique the interest of more buyers. As plots are finished and released, we take new photos and amend listings to encourage site views. Every new listing also gets its own video for sharing on our Facebook page and other social media to attract even more attention to your development.

How will you advertise my house?
On our website www.stratfords.co.uk, via Rightmove (the UK’s no.1 property portal) and in the local press (MK Citizen).
Is there a sole agency contract?
No - you can use us AND any other agent or indeed any other means of promoting your house you like.
What if I am using a High street agent already?
If you're tied in to a sole agency agreement with them you'll have to wait until it's over. If you're on a multi agency agreement then there should be no problem. Of course, you've got to hope that you sell it through Stratfords first as you'll save a fortune!
Can you organise an EPC?
Yes, talk to your valuer.
How long will you market my house for?
As long as it takes to sell…which won’t be very long at all! If you decide to take the house off of the market briefly and put it back on then there is no charge for that either.
How do I pay?
Whatever suits you best - cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Are you just an online company or "virtual agency"?
Do you mean are we just hiding behind a website?
No. We're all real people; well, estate agents anyway!
We have lived and worked as Estate agents in and around the area for many years. Take a look at the About us page.
Stratfords is a real local company, owned, staffed and run by real people, with genuine experience and expertise. Call us on 01908 630 100 and we'll answer any questions you have.
Can you recommend a conveyencer/solicitor/mortgage broker?
We have partnerships with local and independent companies so we can happily recommend any services you may require.
What happens if I want to change or update my property details?
No problem, give us a call and we'll make the changes for you, real time. And no, there is no charge.
How will I receive offers?
The buyer will make the offer through us and we'll negotiate on your behalf. There is no additional charge for this.
What happens when my house is sold?
Once an offer has been accepted by yourself and you are happy that the sale is progressing we shall remove the house from the market. We will then proceed to chase through the solicitors, chain and mortgage brokers involved to keep the transaction running smoothly. Should you need any updates during this time we will assign you with a dedicated member of staff who can keep you informed of any progress.
I'm a developer with lots of properties to sell, how can you help me?
We will save you a small fortune. You're smart. You do the maths.
I've got a prestigious property worth £1M plus can you help?
Yes. We calculate we could save you THOUSANDS. Does that help at all?
I'm a buyer not a seller - what's in it for me?
You can search for the house you're looking for day or night via our website or reach us if you're from out of town by Rightmove or similar sites. We'll organise your viewings for you and introduce you to the vendors.
