NetMovers Welcome Tesco and Google Into UK Property Market
The UK’s leading commission free property portal, NetMovers is welcomes the proposal by Tesco and Google to enter the UK property market. They see this as a ‘step in the right direction’ and predict it will provide benefits in the ‘For Sale By Owner’ (FSBO) market.
[UKPRwire, Wed Mar 03 2010] UK ‘For Sale By Owner’ (FSBO) property portal NetMovers welcomes the proposed plans by Tesco and Google to launch into the UK property market as ‘a move in the right direction’ for the UK property market.
NetMovers offers a commission free service that lists estate agent property for free and provides a ‘for sale by owner’ service for £199. Contrary to the belief that estate agents will see Tesco and Google’s plans as a threat, NetMovers see this as good news instead of competition.
Rick Jones, Operations and Development at NetMovers said; “We were aware of Google’s activity in the property markets in the USA and Australia and have closely monitored the situation. We have not seen a major change to the dynamics of the market as a result of Google’s entry.”
“We welcome Tesco and Google’s proposal and it is in fact exceptionally good news for NetMovers. We have been working alongside Google for many years and welcome the entry into the market of another open minded, dynamic organization who will hopefully aid the much needed revolution in the UK property market.”
NetMovers has used specialist marketing agency Adrac Ltd to ensure that their property portal has been fully optimized to take advantage of Google and Tesco’s possible entry into the UK property market. This is an excellent opportunity for NetMovers as it means property will get another advertising stream and the use of Google’s Street View will enhance property listings.
