Within these pages, you will find a whole host of material to help you when you buy your new home – use the sliders at the top, or the links to the left.

Whether you use our search option, and find a property that you would like to buy through Hatched, or whether you buy a home through a completely different agent, please feel free to come back to our site, for free information relating to buying a house.

Are you thinking of selling?

We have access to thousands of buyers via hundreds of websites and cover the whole of England & Wales. We will charge you just £540 to sell your property, saving you potentially thousands of £££s in estate agency fees!

We are pretty sure you found this property via either Rightmove or Zoopla. This is probably where your buyer is looking right now, and is exactly where we will advertise your home.

So don't go wasting your hard earned money on a high street agent, when we could do the same job for just a few hundred quid!

We have sold 1000s houses all over England & Wales since we launched in 2006 and have saved customers over £11,000,000 in estate agency fees.
