An unknown website called EA League Tables has issued a list of agencies and agency-groups which it claims shows their order by the number of available properties on the market.
“We have spent a considerable amount of time producing the below three estate agency league tables as of December 2019 … We are trying to provide some transparency to the amount of current available (not including Under Offer, SSTC, commercial or new build) properties for sale with the major players in the industry” claims the website, whose authors appear to be unknown.
“We have scrutinised 100s of thousands of properties over 10s of thousands of agents. We have stringently cross-referenced, over numerous iterations, each agent’s available properties between each of the main property websites (Rightmove, Zoopla, Onthemarket, S1Homes, Property Pal, Property News and home.co.uk)” it continues.
It puts the top 10 brands as:
1. Purplebricks (16,284 properties)
2. William H Brown / Connells (5,316)
3. Connells (4,820)
4. Hunters (4,578)
5. Your Move (4,661)
6. Haart (3,727)
7. Reeds Rains / LSL (3,074)
8. Express Estate Agency (2,807)
9. Savills (2, 660)
10. Yopa (2,477)
By estate agency groups the site puts the top three as:
1. Connells (19,294)
2. Countrywide (17,143)
3. Purplebricks (16,284)
And looking solely at hybrid and online agencies the top three are:
1. Purplebricks (16,284)
2. Express Estate Agency (2,807)
3. Yopa (2,477)
Some familiar online agency names like Emoov and easyProperty have very small numbers of available properties according to this league table - just 114 and 112 respectively.
