High street agency to offer fixed fee hybrid service through online network

love2move, the online network which allows high street agents to offer a white-labelled hybrid service, has announced its latest partner.

Peter David Properties, a family-run four-branch firm in West Yorkshire, will now provide vendors with the option to sell their home online for a fixed fee. 

The love2move service allows sellers to manage large parts of the process themselves with the option of upgrading to a full high street service if necessary. 

The service includes advertising on Rightmove and Zoopla, as well as professional photographs and a property brochure.

love2move was launched in 2017 by traditional agency owners Mark Worrall (pictured centre) and Georgina Cox - it has since expanded to a national network of 22 estate agency offices. 

"We are delighted to be working with love2move which allows us to offer a range of services to suit every client’s needs. It gives us access to a whole new market, those who would rather sell their homes online and who want greater control of the whole process," says Noel Wood (pictured left), who founded Peter David Properties in 1996. 

"We believe it brings an added dimension to our business which will support our continued presence on the high street. Clients benefit from the convenience and accessibility of the online service whilst being reassured that, should difficulties arise, they can still receive the support of our experienced staff."

Mark Worrall, director of love2move, adds: "In this day and age people demand instant results and the process of buying a house is no different. At love2move we have put buyer and seller in direct contact to speed up the house buying process and remove any obstacles."

"We believe that by working with established, high street estate agents we offer clients the best of both the online and traditional estate agents."

Earlier this year, love2move launched a crowdfunding campaign for investment of £120,000 on Crowdcube. The pitch was pulled in March, however, with the agency business having only reached 68% of its target.

In April, love2move revealed a 'substantial cash injection from angel investor Gary Dewhurst'.

    Offering an online-only option alongside full service agency will not work, ask Countrywide and Connells. Pandering to the 4% FSBO sector of the market gives an impression of 'jack of all trades, master of none'.
