House Valuation

Step 1: Book your free valuation.

Your first step is to book a free no obligation valuation of your home. All you need to do is ring our team on 0333 999 7699 or book it online.

Your local Hatched estate agent will call you to arrange an appointment time that suits you. We will visit your home and conduct an informed and professional property valuation.

This will include photographing the interior and exterior, preparing floor plans, making a note of the property's unique features and offering advice on how to get your house ready for viewings.

Online Property Portal

Step 2: Get your property live online.

Hatched advertise your property on the UK's three biggest property websites: Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation, with 'Premium Listings' as standard with all our packages.

Unlike other online estate agents, we give you 'Premium Listings' on all three portals with both our Standard and Enhanced packages. We do this because these kinds of adverts receive 35% more clicks on Rightmove1 and generate twice as many enquiries on Zoopla2.

Your Hatched agent will create your advert using your unique property details, photographs and floor plans and get your house online as soon as possible. We'll also put up a 'For Sale' sign so local buyers know your house is on the market.

Don't forget you can upgrade your package at any time with optional extras like professional photography, virtual reality tours or our Social and Digital Marketing Pack to boost your property's impact and reach by targeting buyers who we know will be interested in a property like yours.

Vetting, Viewings and Feedback

Step 3: Vetting, viewings and feedback.

Your Hatched estate agent will manage all viewing requests for you. They will vet potential buyers to make sure they're serious, take calls from interested parties and book viewings that you can see on your online dashboard.

You can approve or reschedule these viewings, depending on your availability, or you can ask us to conduct the viewings on your behalf if you're really busy. After each viewing your agent will call the buyers to get their feedback and then discuss their thoughts with you in detail.

Negotiating offers and progressing your sale

Step 4: Negotiating offers and progressing your sale.

As a Hatched customer you'll get your own dedicated property negotiator who will progress your house sale with interested house-hunters.

They'll handle any offers and negotiate with the buyer on your behalf, but all final decisions are up to you!

Sold board

Step 5: Sold!

Once you've accepted an offer, we'll update your online listings and keep the exchange process moving so your exchange of contracts is as smooth and trouble-free as possible.

Everything we do - from valuation to completion - is designed to successfully sell your property at a price and in a timescale that makes you happy.
