Rightmove ‘Featured Property’ adverts: Are they worth it?

When you’re selling your house, every little thing you can do to increase the number of clicks your property receives makes a huge difference to the success of your house sale. 

That’s why at Hatched we offer a range of smart, targeted and useful bolt-on services you can add to your package to increase the number of people who see your property online.

One of these optional extras is to upgrade your home’s listing on the UK’s biggest property portal, Rightmove, to what’s called a ‘Featured Property’ listing.

The benefits of a Rightmove ‘Featured Property’ listing

This is a way of bringing your home to the forefront of people's property searches by making sure it’s one of the first properties that house hunters see when they search for houses.

When you upgrade to a ‘Featured Property’ on Rightmove, your advert is guaranteed to be positioned at the top of the search page results in an eye-catching box. 

Featured listings have a larger photograph to grab the attention of home buyers and it will also be advertised in the general search results as well, so you get twice the visibility and impact online.

The upgraded advertisement runs for a week and literally puts your home at the top of Rightmove search results; making your home much more visible and prominent to millions of online house hunters.

Rightmove say that on average 40% more people click through to the property details of ‘Featured Property’ than they do on a standard property advert*.

Because ‘Featured Property’ listings are so much more effective at getting more enquiries through to the house seller, Rightmove values the RRP of this type of listing at £500 each.

Hatched offer it to you for £199 as an optional extra to our Standard £495 package. However, choose our Enhanced £895 option and you get the ‘Featured Property’ listing as part of your package.
