A new online platform claims to be the first of its kind to speed up the private treaty sales process for agents and vendors.
Iamproperty has invested a six-figure sum to create ‘movebutler’ which will launch early next year and will be available first to iamproperty’s partner agents before being opened to a wider market.
The company says movebutler is designed to streamline current sticking points in buying and selling - typically compliance, conveyancing and offer verification.
There will also be the option to provide legal and mortgage services through the platform - it claims agents will be able to receive mortgage in principle offers for buyers in just 60 seconds and review offer verification through instant eligibility checks with all of the main lenders.
Movebutler also enables anti-money laundering checks with solicitors.
“We work with thousands of estate agents and already provide a platform which offers a fast, secure and compliant solution…For consumers, unnecessary delays which are more often than not out of the hands of agents can quickly turn the experience negative, creating a lack of trust and tainting the whole process” explains Ben Ridgway, iamproperty’s group managing director.
“Ultimately consumers are looking for speed and convenience which is what we successfully built our auction business iamsold to deliver, pioneering online auction. This new proposition is our biggest development, bringing together our expertise in selling, compliance and conveyancing to create positive change and solutions to benefit agents, buyers and sellers…we’re looking forward to launching in the New Year.”
