OnTheMarket.com reports carrying thousands of listings from estate and letting agents in Northern Ireland to compete head-on with PropertyPal.com, PropertyNews.com and Zoopla.
The company says since its launch in January 2015, OnTheMarket.com has gained significant ground in England, Wales and Scotland. The website has gained strong traction with consumers and is now achieving more than 6 million visits per month.
OnTheMarket.com announced in January 2016 the level of overall support for the portal had risen beyond 6,500 estate and letting agent offices across the UK, which was an increase of more than 50 per cent compared with the same time last year.
The figure comprises contracted offices and agents who have signed a Letter of Intent to join OnTheMarket.com when total support reaches 7,500 offices – which is OnTheMarket.com’s next major milestone.
OnTheMarket.com Commercial Director Helen Whiteley says having made tremendous progress in England, Scotland and Wales over the last year, OnTheMarket.com is proud to enter Northern Ireland as a "much-needed competitor in the online property search market".
"We have worked closely with the agents in Northern Ireland to prepare for this latest launch and look forward to growing our presence still further over the coming months and years,” Whiteley says.
According to estate agent Keith Mitchell MRICS from Templeton Robinson, who is a new member firm listing all its properties at OnTheMarket.com, the achievements of OnTheMarket.com over the last year have been outstanding.
"OntheMarket is already established as a major portal," Mitchell says.
“The website is refreshing because it provides property-seekers with hundreds of thousands of properties for sale or to rent with clear information without distracting data.
OnTheMarket.com also lists many new and exclusive properties for sale or to rent: 24 hours or more before any other portal.”
