Online estate agency FindAHome Online has become an official partner of Port Vale football club in return for a number of advertising, sponsorship and hospitality opportunities.
Unlike many online agencies, FindAHome Online specialises in a local area - where it is based, in Stoke - but in line with many others offers three up-front fees packages of £399, £499 and £799. However, it also offers a 1.0 per cent ‘no sale, no fee’ package.
However, curiously, the agency’s website still carries a logo of the Office of Fair Trading and says it is “regulated by .... Office of Fair Trading” - although the OFT ceased to exist in April 2014.
At the start of this summer the agency reported that it was instructed to sell 39 properties in June and and had actually sold 33.
FindAHome Online is one of a number of local businesses involved in the Port Vale club’s ‘Business Alliance’.
