New UK social media platform Kondo says it's changing the way people buy and sell residential properties by eliminating the middleman.
The recently-launched interface provides a free service for homeowners so that they can advertise their property for sale, coordinate viewings and negotiate financials. It also aims to connect buyers and sellers directly.
The platform initially launched in the north-west of England but is now open to the public. Director of marketing for e3creative (developers of Kondo) Jessica Bradley says:
“ There’s absolutely nothing available, like Kondo, that empowers people to fully take control of their home buying or selling process. The real estate industry is a very traditional business and there’s always an intermediary estate agent to go through. People want more flexibility and to be involved, as proven with emerging online property portals, such as Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket, becoming more popular than ever.
