An entrepreneur has entered the estate agency portals market with a series of local boutique websites.
Neil Harvey, 29, has so far created 20 local portals throughout the South-West, and plans to launch in Birmingham next month.
He charges agents £45 per month, with a second revenue stream coming from local advertising.
He said: “The concept is to create local portals that add value to each area, including links to Ofsted reports, a local blog, etc.
“In Plymouth, for example, arguably the best four local independent agents in the city support it, and the concept is growing.
“I am setting out to provide a niche and interesting alternative to what currently exists.”
