A group of independent agents in the Midlands have joined
forces to launch a locally focused property search portal in February.
wearethemarket.co.uk has so far gained the support of more
than 50 independent offices in Coventry and Warwickshire accessing what they
claim to be around 75% of the available stock in the region.
The group of agents which included Loveitts decided to
launch the new portal following the Say No To Rightmove campaign last year.
While they do not expect to overthrow the large property
portals like Rightmove and Zoopla, they do hope to create an effective local
alternative, and Loveitts have supported the concept.
“There is no doubt that, in time, the current geographical
patch, which we restricted so that a launch date could be set, will grow. Our
low membership fee for agents is already at a level where our operation costs
are covered, leaving us with a healthy advertising budget for launch and
ongoing activity. We also intend to plough revenue back into continual
improvements to the portal, enabling us to deliver an excellent, locally
focused, nationwide property platform in the future,” added Paul Barnes, Director.
