Rightmove has presented a lot of information about their agents recently, but some may have been more private than previously thought.
In January 2010 the proportion of independent estate agency offices spending over £1,000 per month with Rightmove was 4%. In January this year, the figure was 45%.
There is already a short summary from one of the analysts who attended the ‘Discovery Day’ event on Monday this week, but now Rightmove itself has posted up the entire presentation on its own site.
Note that we use the word ‘entire’ advisedly.
Powerpoint struts its stuff over no fewer than 97 pages, with enough graphics, flowcharts and pie charts to cross your eyes and work up a thirst – the presentation thankfully ended with drinks.
However, even if you only have a flat white to hand, there is plenty of interesting stuff here for agents, including an explanation of Rightmove’s forthcoming consumer offering, the tenant passport (page 36 if you want to go straight to it).
Its key benefits for agents are said to be instant, free referencing, and seamless access to traditional referencing.
