OnTheMarket.com grows listing offices by more than 10% in 6 months

The number of estate and letting agent offices listing at OnTheMarket.com has grown 10 per cent during the first half of the year. (Jan – June)

At the beginning of January, more than 5,700 offices were listing on the website and at the end of June, the number had grown to more than 6,300 offices.

OnTheMarket.com has also grown its traffic considerably and throughout the month of June, the website achieved more than 8million visits (source: GA). This is an increase of nearly 100 per cent compared with June 2015, when 4.4million visits were achieved.

Several multi-branch agents have chosen to list with OnTheMarket.com since the beginning of the year.

These have included Nottingham Estate Agency and Harrison Murray which have a total of 37 branches; eight branch firm Arnolds Keys which has offices in Norwich, Norfolk and North Suffolk; Watsons, estate agents and chartered surveyors covering East Anglia; Jeffries, a seven branch firm in South East Hampshire; Goadsby, a 25-branch firm with offices across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire; and Meller Braggins, a five branch firm in Cheshire.

Ian Springett, Chief Executive of OnTheMarket.com, said: “Throughout 2016 the number of leads we provide to agents has increased, our traffic has grown and the number of agents listing on the website has risen by more than 10 per cent.

“Which other recent market entrant has achieved so much in such a short space of time?

“OnTheMarket continues to gain in strength as a major portal. Inconvenient as it may be for our detractors, we are here to stay. We continue to work towards creating the best portal for consumers and agents alike.”

OnTheMarket.com announced in May that it had the support of more than 7,000 estate and letting agent offices. This figure includes offices which are contracted and those which are covered by Letters of Intent to join Agents’ Mutual and to list at OnTheMarket.com when overall support exceeds 7,500 offices – its next milestone.
