Published: 14/02/2015 By William TaperProperty portal Zoopla is seeing the number of paying advertisers using its website drop as competition from online newcomer OntheMarket eats into its market share. OnTheMarket was launched on the 1/2/15 and has gained significant momentum since then.
Zoopla - the UK's second biggest online property site behind Rightmove - said the number of estate agents advertising on its website has fallen by 11 per cent in the last year
Willmotts, along with many other well know agents are founder members of this new portal, OntheMarket.com.
We're proud to be part of this state-of-the-art new website, which is dedicated to presenting properties beautifully, clearly and accurately. It features a clean, simple search and an elegant design with no distracting advertising and no unnecessary information - just hundreds of thousands of properties looking their best. We see it as a great innovation for our vendors and landlords and great for property-seekers too.
Along with thousands of other estate and letting agents across the UK, we have moved all our properties from other websites to OnTheMarket.com and we are launching our new-to-market properties at OnTheMarket.com exclusively first. We shall continue to advertise all our properties on (Portal X) and our own website as well as working as closely as ever with the large number of prospective buyers and tenants on our books.
Whatever your interest, if you’re in the market, visit OnTheMarket.com today and set up a property alert, so you are first to see new properties as they come on the market.
The guardian also has a nice piece on what is happening in the portal market, see below.
