Why We Joined OnTheMarket.com

21st January 2015

You may recently have heard about a new property website called OnTheMarket.com. This new website will launch on Monday 26th January and is set to rival major property portals RightMove and Zoopla.

Thousands of estate and letting agents across the UK have already joined forces with OnTheMarket.com and SP Residential is proud to be one of them. As such, all of our properties (both for sale and to let) will be featured on the site from the moment it launches so you can be sure your property will be viewed by as many potential buyers / tenants as possible.

We're very excited for the launch of OnTheMarket.com and think it will make a big difference when it comes to buying, selling or renting a property. Here's just a few of the reasons why it's good to be OnTheMarket.com - 

1. Great looks and simple search

OnTheMarket.com not only looks fantastic, the easy search function allows users to search for a property quickly and simply and delivers fast, accurate results. Plus, the technology allows the website to seamlessly adapt to any screen size on any device ensuring an excellent user experience whether on a desktop, laptop, mobile or tablet. Did You Know? More than 90% of people start their property search online and over half of them do so on a mobile device?

2. No distractions

Unlike Zoopla and RightMove, there are no third party adverts when you visit OnTheMarket.com and you won't rceive spam mail when you subscribe to email updates. The core focus of OnTheMarket.com is on matching the buyer / tenant with the right property and making it as easy as possible to make an enquiry. 

3. More choice

The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) reviewed the property websites market in 2012 and found that there was too little competition and restricted choice. OnTheMarket.com will help address this balance and give buyers / tenants more choice when searching for a property. OnTheMarket.com will feature hundreds of thousands from more than 4,000 estate agents across the UK from the moment it launches.

4. Accurate valuations

Unlike other property websites which base valuations purely on historical statistics, property valuations will be based on the estate or letting agent's detailed knowledge of their own properties, local area, current market conditions and customers’ personal circumstances for the most accurate results.

5. Face-to-Face Expertise from Local Agents 

All properties at OnTheMarket.com will be listed by estate and letting agents based in physical local offices. This means that everyone who uses the site, whether they’re looking to buy, rent or sell a property, knows that they will be able to deal with someone face-to-face. 

At SP Residential, we believe that OnTheMarket.com marks a new era for the property market and will be widely used by potential buyers and tenants. That's why we've made the move and are listing all of our properties on the site. We are all looking forward to the launch of this exciting new website and look forward to seeing you “on the market”.
