This review platform created by a former real estate agent is claiming that £1 million of new funding will be used to expand its service to the entirety of the UK and eventually, the world.
HomeViews - which calls itself “the review platform for residential property” - was set up by former Marsh & Parsons new homes head of consultancy, Rory Cramer.
When it was set up in February it announced that agencies using it already included Countrywide’s Hamptons brand and Cushman & Wakefield: at that time the company said in a statement “other big names are in the pipeline.”
Now, in a new statement to reveal its additional funding, the firm still names just those two agencies but a spokeswoman insists “other big names will be following suit.”
Until now the service has been restricted to London and has concentrated on Build To Rent new developments. It says it allows “verified tenants and owners the opportunity to contribute insights and honest reviews of residential developments, creating a new and powerful research and marketing tool in the residential property sector.“
It has over 700 developments listed in London and claims to be carrying thousands of resident reviews. The new funding will allow it to spread out to other UK cities this year and internationally in 2020.
