A new website has launched with the aim of providing vendors, landlords, buyers and tenants with an easy way of registering with all local estate and letting agents.
Moving Swiftly On says it eradicates the need for consumers to individually visit every office in their local area.
The site allows agents to send company biographies, a list of services and a quote to prospective vendors and landlords who register their details.
“People tend to live very busy lives and therefore we wanted to make the whole process of registering a person's details as quick and easy as possible," says Paul Clinton, who managed the design and build of the Moving Swiftly On website.
Consumers who use the site will not have to sign up and Clinton says each step is straight-forward.
There is also an interface for agents, where they can forward property details and proposals onto prospective clients.
“With so much online competition now for people selling a home, it is difficult to know which agent is best," adds Clinton.
He says that the preconception that vendors or landlords will save money when paying one-off online agency fees is not necessarily true.
"There is no substitute for local agent knowledge, whether for accurate valuation purposes or the willingness to do the best for their client."
"It is for this reason that we encourage home sellers to register their details so that they can receive a tailored proposal from a local agent," he says.
Agents' proposals sent through the website will include company information such as which associations they are affiliated with, where they advertise clients' properties and what services they offer.
As well as providing prospective clients with a raft of information helping them to make their decision, Clinton says Moving Swiftly On aims to give agents the opportunity to increase their business.
"They will have a pool of people they can get in touch with, with no need for the random leaflet drops or other methods of advertising which may or may not prove fruitful,” he says.
One of the site's partners, Douglas Gilbert, says it can be hard for consumers to be sure if they have contacted every agent in their area.
He says the site will help buyers to make sure they don't miss out on any properties.
"With many properties sold or rented before they even hit the property portals, you may miss out on your ideal home if you are not 'on the books' of all the local agents."
The website says buyers can register their contact details in less than two minutes and Gilbert claims that 'they can receive property alerts faster than any of the property portals allow'.
Moving Swiftly On aims to reduce the chances of 'spamming of inappropriate property details' by sending all emails directly through its own system.
It says any emails agents send will, however, include the firm's logo and contact details.
Agents can sign up for free to the website, which describes itself as 'the UK's new property network'.
