Harrogate-based property portal MoviNorth says it plans to secure additional investment to expand its coverage by the end of 2017, reports Estate Agent Today.
The portal specialises in properties for sale & rent within the Yorkshire area, charges agents £2,500 for 12 months’ advertising, and is run by John Dixon – who previously ran a media planning and buying agency with clients such as DFS and Vision Express.
Currently the MoviNorth covers around 50 per cent of Yorkshire but Dixon has expressed plans to expand to cover the entire county by the end of the year.
“Our roots are firmly planted in Yorkshire which means we love value – value to the estate agents and developers showcasing their properties across the region and value to our web users by providing unique area data and local knowledge to help match them with their next home” he says.
The listings site also covers off Area Demographics, Schools, Restaurants, Solicitors, Transport Links, Places of Worship, Shopping, General Information, Sport, The Arts and Local Attractions.
In addition to its plans for expansion, the portal is currently hosting a competition for users who, if they register with the portal, can then enter a contest with the opportunity to win a £5,000 home deposit contribution.
