“A New Opportunity for Sussex Home Sellers”
10th March 2015
Over recent years estate agents have been effectively forced to use one or both of the two leading property portals, Rightmove and Zoopla, in order to ensure that their clients’ properties were being exposed to the maximum number of buyers.
However, we have been increasingly concerned about the duopolistic approach these portals have taken, as most buyers register with both anyway. So it is with great excitement that a new, 100% agent-owned and operated, property search portal, OnTheMarket.com has launched – you may have seen the impressive adverts on TV recently. The uptake has been huge with over 5,000 agency offices having subscribed to the service.
This support has generated over £8million in development funds and the portal now offers one of the easiest, and certainly the fastest, property search experiences for buyers available. It is also the only portal to be endorsed by both the NAEA and ARLA so its credentials are sound, and indeed enhanced by the fact that the MD of OnTheMarket was also the brains behind PrimeLocation.com.
We know that almost all buyers now use the internet to source their perfect home and the timing is perfect for any of our clients who wish to take advantage of this new opportunity. When you instruct Hunters Estate Agents to sell your property, you can be assured that part of our marketing efforts will certainly include immediate listing with OnTheMarket as well as Rightmove – the other major portal, to ensure that we help you maximize your property’s exposure – and consequently its price.
