New site will widen the property search
A NEW property website, launching this month, is all set to rival Rightmove and Zoopla according to upmarket estate agent Jackson-Stops & Staff.
OnTheMarket.com will feature properties from across its 44 nationwide offices, including the Water Lane, Wilmslow branch and include country homes, farms, estates and listed buildings, plus residential developments and new homes.
OnTheMarket.com goes live on Monday, January 26 and its focus is on providing an outstanding service for property searchers, estate and letting agents, vendors and landlords.
The venture already has support from in excess of 4,000 estate and letting agency branches nationwide and is expecting many more to join in the coming weeks as momentum continues to grow.
Its member agents will be moving hundreds of thousands of properties to OnTheMarket.com from other websites to create a unique set exclusive to this portal.
The property search at OnTheMarket.com will be slick, simple, fast and state-of-the-art, compatible with the latest technologies.
The website will adapt seamlessly to fit the screen of any device being used to view it. There will be no clutter from distracting third party adverts, or any spam email.
Every property at OnTheMarket.com will be marketed by a locallybased estate or letting agent, because OnTheMarket.com knows the majority of the public recognises the benefits of having a local professional in place who can manage the sales or lettings process on their behalf.
Also, there is no substitute for their detailed knowledge of a property, the local area, the current market conditions and the vendor’s or landlord’s personal circumstances.
Tim Dansie, on behalf of Jackson-Stops & Staff, said: “Our directors and staff combine a first-class understanding of residential property with the very highest standards of services for clients.
“We believe OnTheMarket.com will rapidly grow to become a major player in the portal market because it will provide a clean, crisp and simple search function and a highly effective platform for our vendor and landlord clients and be a great place to launch new properties onto the market.”
Ian Springett, chief executive of OnTheMarket.com, said: “We are delighted Jackson-Stops & Staff has committed to OnTheMarket.com and we look forward to matching motivated buyers and tenants with all the properties our member agents are marketing for their clients across its 44 offices nationwide.”
Jackson-Stops & Staff will continue to be listed with Rightmove.
