The team at OnTheMarket.com is most likely popping the champagne to celebrate the company’s twelfth consecutive month of growth in July and a year-on-year increase of 17 percent.
The UK portal, which just passed its 18-month birthday, had more than 6400 listing offices at the end of July – an increase of almost 1000 offices year on year.
Several multi-branch agents have chosen to list with OnTheMarket.com since the beginning of the year, including Nottingham Estate Agency and Harrison Murray which have a total of 37 branches; eight-branch firm Arnolds Keys; Watsons, estate agents and chartered surveyors covering East Anglia; Jeffries, a seven branch firm in South East Hampshire; Goadsby, a 25-branch firm with offices across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire; and Meller Braggins, a five branch firm in Cheshire.
“Many agents advertising at OnTheMarket.com are launching their new-to-market properties exclusively at OnTheMarket.com first: 24 hours or more ahead of any other portal, which is a strong and compelling reason for consumers to visit the website,” said Ian Springett, Chief Executive of OnTheMarket.com.
“We announced in May that OnTheMarket.com had the support of 7000 estate and letting agent offices. This figure – which continues to grow – includes offices which are contracted and those which are covered by Letters of Intent to join Agents’ Mutual and to list at OnTheMarket.com when overall support exceeds 7,500 offices – our next milestone.”
