Boomin has published the latest data on its platform’s performance, claiming that over 20% of Smartval referrals received by agents have resulted in a listing since the service was launched nine months ago.

It also says 11% of calls generated through its platform are valuation requests and that its Secret Property and Chainmaker widgets boost valuations for agents by 48%.

It is also very keen to highlight how the key difference between it and rivals like Rightmove, Zoopla and OTM is the quality of its leads.

“Boomin offers something new and innovative to the market, complementing our existing digital marketing and creating real opportunities for our agents. We’re pleased to support Boomin in their next phase of growth,” says estate agency Farrell Heyworth’s Director Jeremy Collins.
