A new portal aimed at investors looking to purchase buy-to-let property has reported that it has thousands of listings from agents to be uploaded in the next few days.
Buy2Let.com, which is currently showing 125 available properties, says that high numbers of new listings are queued in its system ready for upload in the coming days.
The site is currently listing investment properties marketed by Northwood, Aspen Woolf, Stirling Ackroyd, Leaders and more.
Its founder, Martin Wilkinson, says that the portal has also just signed up a Martin & Co franchise and Vita Properties, both of which already have properties listed on the site.
Buy2Let.com says it has experienced a 220 per cent uplift in traffic in its first week, including a threefold increase in organic traffic.
It also reports that over 200 property searches have been carried out and that it has received hundreds of business enquiries from agents and corporate landlords.
“Our unique yield-driven approach has been much appreciated by buyers and sellers alike and we are experiencing huge numbers of email alert registrations and are following up literally 100's of leads from agents with buy-to-let properties to sell, which originate from all over the UK - our use of yield has particularly resonated with corporate landlords,” Wilkinson told Estate Agent Today.
The website, which claims to be the first property portal dedicated entirely to investment, allows investors to search for buy-to-let properties by location, type, price, rent and yield/annual return.
Wilkinson says that his website has been designed to be the perfect marketing partner for agents to reach investors directly.
“We appreciate that some agents and developers simply don’t have the time to dedicate to the investment market, and we know that the current property portals simply do not cut it when it comes to marketing to investors,” he adds.
