Instead of charging commission or upfront fees to sell homes, Housesimple makes its money through referral fees by offering advice on services and products including mortgages, insurance and conveyancing.
Housesimple’s service launches in Nottingham on 27 December following a trial in Yorkshire and the North West. There are also plans to roll the service out nationwide in the new year.
Sam Mitchell, CEO of Housesimple, said: “We are on a mission to change estate agency for the better, by making the experience of buying and selling property simple, transparent and free.
“It was a bold move to be the first agent to sell for free, but we’re not afraid to do things differently. We know customers don’t just want cheaper; they want a better experience.”
“We’re excited to make moving simple in Nottingham and save homeowners thousands in fees. Looking ahead to the New Year we will be expanding into even more cities and towns across the country,” he added.
