Buying and selling in Darlington

It's time to Strike

Looking to sell your house in Darlington? You’ve come to the right place. There’s a lot to love about the area. In fact, it ranked 7th in the entire country for its amazing quality of life. And it’s easy to see why. From the gorgeous green space (we dare you to find a better picnic area than South Park) to historical landmarks like Walworth Castle and Piercebridge Roman Fort just a stone’s throw away, it’s a pretty idyllic place to call home. So whether you’re looking to sell or buy in Darlington, we’re here to help. 

Our mission is to turn the estate agent industry on its head — and that starts with Strike’s promise to sell your home for free. We do things differently, which we think makes us the Darlington estate agents you’ve been looking for. 

How does Strike work? Well, we’ll provide photos, marketing, negotiating offers, and everything you need to sell your home for free. We have optional extras on offer — like premium listings and video trailers — but you only use them if you want to. It’s up to you, every step of the way. 

Plus, our Strike app makes it easy to manage your sale from your phone. Rather talk to a person at the end of the line? That’s OK, too. We’re always here, in whatever way works best for you.

Wander in the covered market, grab a swim at the Dolphin Centre, or just get lost in the Yards. "

And if you’re looking to move to Darlington, there are some great areas to call home. The area has seen huge investment and innovation, but it still retains its historic feel. Check out the Victorian options on Bedford Street if you want to be in the heart of it all — or wander into Denes or Mowden for a more suburban feel. Almost anywhere you’ll look will benefit from a buzzing market town and rolling countryside within easy reach. You can even take a look down the road at Barnard Castle… but we all know how that can end up. 

And you’ll never be short of things to do — see what’s happening at the Hippodrome or in the market, grab a swim at the Dolphin Centre, or just get lost in the Yards. We’d recommend rounding the day off with a culinary treat (maybe at Akbar the Great, if you’re in the mood for a proper curry). 

So whether you’re buying or selling, Darlington is an exciting area — with a lot to offer. Feel ready to Strike? The first step is an in-person valuation with one of our experts. It’s free and there’s no obligation to sell with us. You’ll get a chance to learn a little more about what we do and ask any questions you might have. 

If you think it’s the right fit, we can have your listing online in a flash.

Great question. At the moment moving is still allowed, even in very high risk areas, according to government guidance.
