While talking to the Future PropTech conference in London, Lee Wainwright described the near future enthusiasm of the company to aim for the entire United States first.
However one day “we’ve ambitions to grow our business model across the world,” he told attendees.

The talk, which was subdued and didn’t attain a full attendance as expected, featured Wainwright affirming the attention Purplebricks gives to user experiences.
Wainright also stated that Proptech programs were analyzed by how much worth they were to customers, and not based on any other internal data.
“When I looked at the hybrid model it was the customer sales proposition that stood out… not the increasingly irrelevant concept of High Street offices,” Wainwright said after being questioned about his conflicting regards after being hired by Countrywide and currently Purplebricks.
Wainwright talked very positively about the direction PropTech’s modernization which should make house purchases easier and quicker.
He was questioned about the lead up that assisted in the growth of their market share, Wainwright noted the availability of prices on the site, saying: “Putting the price clearly is key … the customer is in a different place, a better place, when they know how much something will cost.”
Toward the end of the talk, Wainwright hinted that toward the final parts of this year the portion of the market that online and hybrid programs currently have will be up to 10% “but not as high as 15%,” which is an increase from the current 7% share it currently holds.
