Buy, sell or let in Letchworth Garden City

We’ve spent more than 50 years as estate agents and letting agents in Letchworth Garden City – and most of the team lives here too. It’s safe to say we know this area inside out, including the best transport links, the finest dog walks, the up and coming postcodes and even the best cup of coffee.

Along the way, we’ve built up great relationships in the area – and that makes all the difference when it comes to selling or letting your home. Of course, we produce gorgeous 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 [link 1] for an instant guide.

And for a free, in-person appraisal of your property get in touch. [link 2] 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.

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 within a few days.

Flexible lettings packages
With legislation changing frequently, it makes all the difference to feel confident that your let – and your tenant – is in safe hands.

Although, when it comes to lettings, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. If you simply need a hand sourcing a tenant, we can do that. Or if you’d like us to take the whole management burden off your shoulders, that’s good too. Of course, that goes for everything in between as well.

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.

Our Home Finder Service [link] is another way to find property fast. Simply key in what you’re looking for and we’ll help you view as many as possible before anyone else.

Tap into our experience and innovation
We’ve been helping buyers, sellers, tenants and landlords in Letchworth Garden City 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. We prefer to use and recommend local solicitors as they are more familiar with the specific regulations and restrictions that apply to our garden city.

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 or tenants 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.

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 or lettings journey. And our network of 11 other Country Properties branches across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire gives us direct access to buyers and tenants 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, a landlord expanding your portfolio – or pretty much anything else you can dream of..

Moving is a big deal. We want to make your moving experience a breath of fresh air.

Our business is personal

When it comes to summing up the flavour of Country Properties Letchworth Garden City, I’d say it’s our team – and our family values – that makes the difference.

Many businesses speak of being ‘like a family’ but as we bought this branch as brothers in 2000, we really are family.

With a background in estate agency, we brought great sector knowledge with us and have been building on it ever since. We’re proud that our brilliant team has been with us for a long time – collectively, we’ve amassed a unique range of skills and expertise, which we’re always ready to share with our buyers, sellers and landlords.

This family feel is echoed by the area itself. Letchworth Garden City has a fascinating heritage, which is well-protected in law, but with commuter links to London and Cambridge, we feel you get the best of both worlds when you move here.

We were brought up in the town and now work in it, together, which means you get twice the local experience and property expertise too!

Professional and friendly service. They went over and beyond what you could have expected. Thanks to Ian, we were able to market and sell our house within days, securing the most robust chain and making our new purchase a reality. We used Ian at Country Properties 26 years ago when we bought our home, and were very happy to ask him to sell it all this time later.
