Along the way, we’ve built up great relationships in the area – and that makes all the difference when it comes to selling your home. Of course, we produce attractive marketing packages and list your home where buyers are looking. That’s a given.

Getting personal with your property
Selling with us isn’t a production line. We’ll take time to find out the best bits about your property, so we can shout them from the rooftops

Free valuations with value
If you’re just looking for a quick ballpark for how much your property’s worth, fill in our online form for an instant guide.

And for a free, in-person appraisal of your property get in touch. More than simply a calculator based on square footage, we’ll use our knowledge of the local market to truly understand where your property sits in the market.

Eye-catching photography and videography
Our photographers go above and beyond to showcase your home looking its best – sometimes literally, with drone pilots available to capture properties from the air.

We work with experienced, feet-on-the-ground videographers too. Whatever approach is right for your home, we’ll advise you on the best way of bringing it to life for your potential buyers.

Accurate floor plans
It’s important for potential buyers to visualise how the space will work for them, so our state-of-the-art floor plans clearly highlight the flow of your home, before they even set foot in the place.

While most buyers view brochures online these days, we can still create a physical copy if people prefer to have something to take away with them. Either way, we’ll design a compelling, attractive written showcase to give buyers a complete introduction to your home.

Scroll-stopping listings
It’s not rocket science – but it’s an art! The better your ad, the more clicks you’ll get and the quicker you’ll sell. We’ll recommend the best approach for your unique property, so your perfect buyers will spot you immediately.

Viewings that sell
Selling your home is our job. So we prefer to be there to show buyers around your home – at a time that suits both you and the people interested in viewing. We’ll sit down with you in advance, to make sure we understand all the best elements of your property and we’ll preempt as many viewer questions as we can. We believe accompanied viewings are better and easier for everyone, leaving you free to live your life while we sell your home.

Prompt and practical feedback is vital when you’re looking for a swift, smooth sale. We follow up with potential buyers after every viewing and we’ll call or email it to you.

Beat the market to your dream home
Online portals are fast – but a relationship with us is faster still. We’ll match buyers and sellers with homes across the Country Properties network – before they even hit the market. Or keep an eye on our social media accounts to be in the know before the crowds.

Tap into our experience and innovation
We’ve been helping buyers and sellers in Hitchin for 50 years – while always working hard to be at the cutting edge of estate agency and customer service.

Share our contacts book
Over the years, we’ve discovered some great financial, surveying and legal professionals – as well as a bank of excellent tradespeople.

If you need a mortgage broker, a surveyor or a conveyancer, let us know. Our preferred firm of solicitors even works directly via our computer systems, which means we’re always up to speed with how your sale is progressing.

And for anything else, we’ll pass you the details for people we’ve worked with before and who we know will do a fantastic job for you, including trades who can solve problems and secure vital certification quickly and efficiently.

Marketing packages to suit your home
Of course, our job is to attract the right buyers for your home. And getting the photography, video, floor plans and writing looking irresistible is a huge part of that. Choose from our range of marketing packages – we’ll do the rest.

Keeping you in control – with our support
From talking you through the thinking behind our valuation, to matching the right buyers to your property, we want you to feel in control – never stressed. We’ll be there, guiding people round your property, doing the background checks and any other ways we can take the pressure off.

If you’re using our preferred solicitors, we’ll know exactly how your transaction is progressing at every step. And if you prefer to use your own professionals, that’s great too. We’ll update you throughout the process – working hard to bring you the answers you need, especially as you get closer to completion.

My Country Properties portal
We’ll give you regular updates throughout the process and My Country Properties portal is available 24/7, for viewings information and recent feedback, so you’ll always know how things are progressing.

You can get in touch with us via the portal too, so there’s always support when you need it.

Maximising the portals
It goes without saying that we advertise your property on Rightmove, as well as on our own website, covering all 12 Country Properties branches, across our area. We know how to create professional, scroll-stopping listings, designed to make the most of their broad reach. And our busy social media accounts bring your home’s details to active buyers looking in our towns and villages.

Support from the UK’s largest estate agent franchisor
We’re part of The Property Franchise Group (TPFG), one of the biggest estate agent groups in the country. This connection means we’re able to keep our skills topped up with quality in-house training and continuous development, as well as the latest market insights, to help us advise you best.

The extra mile
Living and working in the local community means we go the extra mile to smooth your sales. And our network of 11 other Country Properties branches across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire gives us direct access to buyers across the region.

Specialist support for you
That network also includes an experienced team of specialists to support you whatever your circumstances; from first time buyers to downsizers and everyone in between. So we’ve got someone to help if you’re a growing family looking for a bigger, child-friendly home, a commuter needing great transport links, a remote/hybrid worker prioritising inspirational live/work spaces – or pretty much anything else you can dream of..

Our business is personal

When it comes to summing up the flavour of Country Properties Hitchin, I’d say it’s our amazing team – and their huge local knowledge – that makes the difference.

In a friendly town like Hitchin, repeat business is the real proof that we’re doing something right. And keeping team members is another. I’m proud to say we’re doing well on both counts.

All of our local experience means we really offer a unique service, advising on the local market and proactively supporting our clients through the whole process.

Which is why we’ve worked on behalf of the same customers again and again. And we’re proud that many of the people who buy through us turn into vendors themselves when the time is right for them to sell or start their own property portfolios.

Our industry experience is matched only by our local knowledge. We live and breathe Hitchin. Some of us even went to school here – and we all enjoy everything from the street food festivals to the music events, as well as the beautiful countryside that surrounds us. And knowing the area inside out certainly helps make every move even smoother.

It all adds to the great feel Hitchin has; a side dish to its wonderful restaurants, independent shops and bars.
