The highly anticipated debut of free to list UK portal Homesearch has arrived. From today agents will be able to access the portal and give the Homesearch team feedback on the product which CEO, Giles Ellwood has admitted will be “a work in progress”. Consumers will have access to the portal from the 15th with Homesearch expected to lay out a marketing plan to attract the public to the new portal in the coming weeks.
Homesearch is free to list for agents and has been roundly praised by the industry for listening to agent concerns and bringing a product to market in record quick time. The company has until now operated as a property data company and only took the decision to build a portal towards the end of March this year. The fact that the challenger portal managed to sign up 10,000 agents in such a short period of time, albeit mostly on a free to list basis, is testament to how highly regarded the project is within the UK property industry.
We look forward to checking Homesearch out for ourselves on the 15th and will keep you updated on its progress.
