UK property portal, Zoopla has been in the middle of deciding whether an online agent listing on its platform meets its membership criteria after offering its services for free.

MoveSelf, which launched in 2017, lets home owners create their own property listing for sale or rent for free and they can then pay for extra services such as a For Sale board for £20, photography or floor plans for £75 each and sales progression for £250 on a ‘no sale no fee’ basis.

It is a member of The Property Ombudsman.

Depending on the package, this meant a vendor could sell their home for from nothing to £560.

This makes it cheaper than Purplebricks’ charge of £899 and £1,999 for Yopa’s ‘no sale no fee’ offering.

Regardless of the services used, MoveSelf also said listings would appear on Zoopla, as well as other property websites such as The House Shop and Mouse Price.

It does not provide listings on Rightmove.
