Services

Sales

Property Valuation - We offer a complimentary, no obligation property valuation. This will be carried out by one of the business owners and you will be provided with a detailed analysis on what your property is worth in the current market.
Our valuation service is provided using thorough and extensive local research and encompasses all comparable and current market conditions. We will also talk you through the sales process and recommend the perfect strategy to suit you.


Low Key Marketing – If you are looking for a discreet marketing or to generate an off-market sale then this is the service for you. Many of our clients are very private and don’t want their house on the open market. At Hibbert Homes we know which buyers are out there and would be able to generate a sale for you without going on the open market.


Market Ready Service - If you are looking to move but haven’t found the right property yet then this could be the service for you. If the right property comes along then, these days you need to be in a position to make an offer. By having your property ‘market ready’ we can have all photos taken, floor plans created and particulars written so that you are a click of a button from being on the market yourself. This can save you valuable time should you suddenly find the property you’ve been looking for.


Viewings - We take the time to sit down with applicants to discuss their individual requirements. We can therefore assess whether your property is likely to meet their needs in order to avoid wasting your time or theirs with unnecessary viewings. All of our viewings are carried out by an owner of the business giving you satisfaction that your property is in safe hands. Viewings can often go overlooked as an easy job but it is the most important job to help generate a sale. All viewings will be pre-booked with the owner’s permission.
