Another new property portal has been launched, this one - Mutual - describing itself as the ‘Pre-Portal Property Platform for estate agents.’
Mutual allows potential vendors to gauge the level of buyer-interest in their property, by listing it pre-sale; they then see how many registered buyers view their details via a dashboard.
“Mutual is a platform which enables agents to pre-market their actual market appraisals as opposed to just their instructions. It places properties during the appraisal immediately into the vision of their registered buyer database, and other registered buyers on the platform” says founder Max Fuller.
He says this also means buyers can be the first to know about new stock.
“At a time when many property portals seem to be vying for market dominance Mutual has outmanoeuvred this battle, by focusing on the earlier part of the property and instruction journey, putting control back in the hands of agents and the general public looking to buy and sell” claims Fuller.
He is offering “forward-thinking agents" six months free use of the portal - thereafter it will cost £100 a month subscription to use the service.
Mutual has so far been funded entirely by Fuller himself, who is a Worcester-based landlord.
