Recently advertised our house with http://www.hatched.co.uk and were very happy with teh service received, fortunately we sold it privately in the end so no Estate Agents fees, however I did a lot of research at the time and found Hatched to be the bets price by a long shot compared to all other estate agents.

They take all the relevant photos and 360 degrees photos of main rooms and no cost to pay for this.

Online estate agent, they advertise on all major websites such as Rightmove.co.uk

Lots of sale options to choose at a low low rate
No Sale No Fee and 0.5% NOT 5% 0.5% completition fee
£99 upfront and 0.25% fee on completition
£199 upfront and £199 on completition

From the Hatched.co.uk site
To start saving thousands when you sell your home, simply click your preferred fee option above, fill in your details and a consultant from Hatched will call you to go through the next steps. Alternatively, you can call us on 0800 840 9565.

A complete estate agency service at a fraction of the cost

With over 90% of house sale enquiries now coming via the internet, we recognised that there was no longer a need for estate agents to have expensive high street offices in multiple locations, company cars, and newspaper adverts. So weve done away with all of these - and are passing the savings onto you.


Our service includes full coverage on ALL of the major websites, including Rightmove, Findaproperty, Primelocation, Propertyfinder, Zoopla, Globrix, Fish4Homes, and over 150 others, so you've got just as much chance of selling through us, as you do on the high street - the difference is, it will only cost you £460 when you sell through Hatched! To get going, just choose your preferred fee option above, fill in your details and someone from Hatched will contact you to book in an appointment.


Our average customer saves around £3,500

We offer a choice of flexible fees to suit you. Our lowest and most popular fee is just £199+VAT up front and then just £199+VAT again on completion of a successful sale. On a typical £200,000 house, this means that you'd pay less than £460, compared to around £4,000 if you used a high street agent! No wonder we are one of the fastest growing estate agents in the country!

seems good, how long did they take to come round to take the photos and how long after that were the photos on the website?

seems good to me too, i am looking to rent a property and DO NOT want to see even the face of an estate agent.
websites like these are ideal for me. however, there are very very few search results which come up when I look for "properties to rent".

Are there any other websites like these for people looking for "properties to rent"?

They do renting also, check out their site.

And add your property to rightmove.co.uk to rent out, so a lot more viewers from their I would imagine!

Not voted either way but:

"On a typical £200,000 house, this means that you'd pay less than £460, compared to around £4,000 if you used a high street agent!"

Only if that agent charges you 2%. I am currently selling my house and the estate agent is charging 0.75% - These fees (and contract terms) are negotiable, and there are some benefits to using a 'real' estate agent - they can show potential buyers around, they can notify different types of buyer that wouldn't normally be looking for your particular type of house etc.

It is a cheaper way to sell your house (and one that I considered), but is not necessarily the best way.

N the estate agent is charging 0.75%.
Don't forget that you'll have to pay VAT on top of their fee (as you will with these people, too) - Every agent I've ever dealt with has conveniently forgotten to mention that at the time.

More importantly they don't seem to have that many houses on their books - none at all in my town. So the chances of potential buyers using the site are pretty slim.

Agreed, you may pay £1000 extra for a proper service but they've only got to get you an extra 1k on the sale price to pay for themselves anyway. Plus I would assume that they show people round where you'd do it yourself with this? Time costs money.


EDIT - Looks like they do show people round after all. My mistake.
#10
Sounds quite a good idea, might want to change the price though, it charges VAT on top of the £398.....IE: £467.65.
#11
I bought my house through a company like this back in 1999 (can't remember name). So it's not a new idea but it was perfect. I liked the idea of the estates agents not getting money for old rope.

I just phoned them to check, they told me that I was wrong that an estate agent would show people round the house. Here's a quote from houseprice.org.uk's guide to estate agents:

"The common practice is that the Estate Agent will show the prospective buyers around your property"

Don't like a company which tells me I'm wrong either!!

Before you say that, do a test. Find one of their for sale properties on their website. Now do a Google search for properties of the same type, in the same area. For example, I looked at the first property they have listed in London - it was a flat in Beulah Hill (not that I know or care where that is :-)) Then I did a google search for flats for sale in Beulah Hill. Their entry wasn't anywhere in the first 50 returns - I didn't look any further. So if you can't find a place that you KNOW they've got on their books (and judging by it's serial number, it wasn't a brand new entry either), you've gotta ask if ANY of their properties would be found by potential buyers. If not, I certainly wouldn't pay them anything up front.
Oh yes, and make sure you can cancel the listing. Otherwise any agents you approach won't sell as a "sole agent" and will therefore chanrge yo more for the privilege.

I've been involved with selling two recently, one agreed on 1% the other for 1.25%
One is near Brighton, the other Maidenhead.

Happy to give names in a PM.

It's a local Estate Agent, not a big chain, and they probably wouldn't be too happy with me giving the name out as everyone would be after the same rate and it took quite a bit of negotiating to get them down to that, (they normally charge 1.5%). I was involved in the sale of a different property recently and the agent there charged 1.25% (after quoting 1.75% intially) - my point was that these rates are negotiable - as is the length of the contract and therefore you should never accept the terms that are initially quoted. The amount the estate agent is prepared to agree on will, of course, depend on the number and price of properties being sold in your area and how desperate they are for your business. Right now is a good time to negotiate!

Great spot, about time the rip off / price fixing estate agents had some competition.
#19
Lot of companies offer similar
Well worth a try but you need time on your hands.

To be fair I did the same test and found it. Although they obviously don't have many customers.

seems really pricey to me. Sell my house for 500K and they take £2937.50 just for taking some photos and sticking it on a few websites.

also,

"On a typical £200,000 house, this means that you'd pay less than £460, compared to around £4,000 if you used a high street agent!"

Never seen an agent charging 2% let alone 5% quoted

Unless you choose the option where it only cost £398 + vat?

They also deal with the negotiation too I think, it's not just taking photos and sticking it on a web-site.

Not that I think it's that great a deal, just trying to look at it fairly.
#24
We have just gone on with [url]www.PinkResidential.co.uk[/url] and they have been great. I chose these as they are our local agent that has just launched an online version so they still have all the experience and knowledge and are not sat at home running my sale.

So far they have been great. Got three viewings booked in already.
#25
I dont know if some people have missread this but you can also choose the following options starting at 0.25% less than 0.75% been quoted above.

See other options below:-

Lots of sale options to choose at a low low rate
No Sale No Fee and 0.5% NOT 5% 0.5% completition fee
£99 upfront and 0.25% fee on completition
£199 upfront and £199 on completition

yeah but you are paying £199 + VAT up front for what might well lead to a no sale. I dont think they do any of the negotiations, viewings etc.

You can choose no fee upfront and a 0.5% fee if sold on completition, this works out a lot cheaper.

They do the negotiations for you and everything with the interested buyers, you do the viewings which I prefer myself anyway.

I was referring to the 5% figure quoted in the OP.

No estate agent i have ever come across wants more than 2% and as said by others, its quite easy to get 0.75-1% if sole vendor.

You're right about the first bit, although there are other options.

The second bit, they do negotiations, no viewings.

They make up the 5% bit, kinda like to say just in case you thought you read it as 5%, not 0.5%. And also to suggest that they are that much cheaper (although they're not).

Well I posted that I went on with [url]www.PinkResidential.co.uk[/url].

Can't believe it - I have just accepted an offer ; sold within a week. I am really happy and we found a new house yesterday just waiting to hear if our offer is accepted.

Can't recommend the online way enough and I was very pleased with who I used.:)

Congrats on sale! I'm keeping my eyes open as will be selling in August hopefully
