British real estate giant, and one of the biggest in the nation, Zoopla, has announced that 2,400 branches have joined its network since the first lockdown in March of last year, bringing the number of branches and homes connected to its platform to over 19,500.
Andy Marshall, Zoopla’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:
“As we mark just over a year in since the first lockdown began, we’re delighted that during this time over 2,400 new customers have chosen to partner with Zoopla. Our recently launched Vision sets Zoopla’s intention to be the ecosystem of choice amongst agents and we look forward to welcoming many more in the coming months.”
Zoopla has accomplished this via racing property market, lockdown, and extended stamp duty holiday. The company reported that buyer demand was up 24% in the wake of the announcement while overall demand stayed a constant 80% higher, year-over-year.
Zoopla has been working to improve its service to customers in recent months, having launched its business vision earlier this year.
“Our investment in improving our product offering is also paying dividends for agents, with listings that offer virtual viewings selling and letting 12% faster than those without, resulting in a 6% increase in leads. With more exciting launches coming soon, we’re looking forward to bringing the agent community with us on our journey to re-imagine the property market.”
