Agents invited to preview BestAgent Marketplace before 2020 consumer launch
BestAgent has built a completely new, much easier way for all agents and movers to find each other, in a way that levels the playing field for all agents of all sizes.
It’s called BestAgent Property Marketplace. The consumer proposition is “Find your agent, find your home.” It is due for public launch in 2020.
A prospecting directory of all UK addresses with owners’ names
A directory of all residential sales and lettings agents
A complete inventory of all currently available sales and lettings properties.
The primary objective is to help sellers and landlords find their best agent at the first attempt, speeding up the process of selling or letting, and reducing lost instruction rates for agents.
The secondary objective is to help get average agents commissions for sales back up to 2% or more, from better informed customers who understand the value they are receiving.
Vendor and Landlord “invitations to pitch”, some by video or audio, will be made freely available to any and all agents covering the area, although contact details are kept private.
Agents will be able to respond privately by video message with a personal pitch. Clients can then compare personal pitches and choose which agents to invite in for an appraisal.
People want to know who’s coming to their home.
Before we launch it to the public, we’re showing it to agents at a series of private, agent-only conferences between now and December, to debate the finer points of how it will work. We want to listen to agents’ views in a confidential setting and make sure we get it right.
We are inviting owners or directors of all agents, of all sizes, to attend one of a series of national conferences, starting in Exeter on Wednesday 25th September, for the 3000 agents from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset.
The future of agency is personal. Get involved.
