Saved lots of money - thousands of pounds - using Hatched as opposed to a regular agent. Photographs and 360 degree virtual tours were very good and staff were always easily contactable by phone or e-mail. Whole process was very simple - one hour or so for the photos to be taken, verify the ones put up on their website before releasing to Rightmove (although we did have a hiccup when ours were released to Rightmove before we had checked them), put up the sign (provided by the agent when he came to do the photographs), await e-mails or phone calls from the agent to arrange viewings. Processing of offers/sale etc... all handled via agent as per usual. Used local solicitor though as preferred to be able to go and see someone in the flesh if things were dragging once sale agreed. Probably a bit pricier than an internet solicitor, which Hatched offered, but having saved so much on the agent fees, worth it. Carrying out viewings ourselves turned out to be easy, after a bit of apprehension at first. As they have no local base, these internet companies do rely on you doing a bit of 'research' yourselves to come up with a possible initial sale price, but you soon find out from the feedback from viewings, available on their website, if you are pitching maybe a bit too high. At the end of the day, as the house goes on Rightmove, right alongside those from the more traditional agents, you will probably be reaching the same audience anyway. Hatched do also offer various payment options. We were recommended them and have already recommended them to others.
