Online estate agency easyProperty is marking the start of 2016 by launching a Land and New Homes division.
“It’s obviously one of the residential market’s growing sectors with substantial new housebuilding volumes and we want to be part of that” Rob Ellice, chief executive of the agency has told Estate Agent Today.
“There will be more details available [later] in the New Year” he says.
It is thought this involvement with new build property may extend to easyProperty’s lettings service getting involved in new Build To Rent schemes in some major cities across the UK.
Just before Christmas the agency announced it had secured a £16m investment from a London-based asset manager, with an additional £9m to be available to support acquisitions by easyProperty.
