Here at Kirk Estates transparent and clear communication with our clients is a priority second to none and we feel obliged to inform and advise of significant changes that will affect the marketing of, that for most, is your home. On the 26th January a number of estate agents will be committing to a new website portal known as On The Market.com. New member agents of this site will be required to END their current agreement and hence marketing exposure with either Zoopla or Rightmove. Additionally there will be further restrictions as part of this alternative membership. Many agents will have terminated from one of these sites already. Whilst we feel sure your respective agent will have advised you in detail of these changes we are in no doubt many sellers will not have been advised.
Notably, at Kirk Estates we will be maintaining and growing our relationship with BOTH Rightmove and Zoopla as they have spent millions of pounds developing and gaining market position to service the needs of buyers and sellers in the UK and Internationally.
We know that any agent should always act in their clients best interests and feel strongly about how terminating marketing with either of these sites will have a catastrophic impact on levels of exposure your property receives and hence chances of concluding a sale at the best possible price in the shortest possible time.
After consulting our database of clients ALL use Rightmove but significantly many like Zoopla and enjoy the user experience. For us Zoopla has cemented their place in the marketplace and provides an invaluable platform on which we market our clients properties.
We would be most interested and grateful to hear your views, as we will be posting factual statistics in relation to these emerging changes that WILL without fail affect the present marketing of your property. We will be posting meaningful headline statistics to ensure you are brought up to speed on the basis this may be new news to you.
If you have any queries or wish to discuss this matter confidentially please contact us at your convenience 24/7. Covering the East Midlands we want to ensure this post reaches as many individuals as possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
