A property search platform aimed squarely at investment properties buyers is launching on August 24th that aims to offer agents a free way to attract quality investor sales leads.
PropertyXYZ has been co-founded and self-funded by former Beresford Adams agent and property investment specialist Robert Jones, who says his site already lists 110,000 properties from all over the UK, including many leading agents such as Leaders, Winkworth and Dexters.
He claims the platform will be the most data-rich and ‘intelligent’ of its kind for investors looking for properties to buy property, but who want lots of research data and filters.
The site will be free for anyone to use and agents can also upload properties via their XML feeds to the site for free too. Jones says his business will generate revenue by offering agents premium listings via its comparative ‘price matching’ feature.
Several agents have already signed up to this service including Chester-based investment specialist Residential Estates.
Quality not quantity
Jones says the site is not trying to encroach on agent’s market expertise, but instead offers access to qualified and warmed-up leads and offers ‘quality not quantity’, he claims.
“We’re not looking to remove the agent from the property investment buying process,” he says.
PropertyXYZ also claims to have a database of 10,000 investors who are already registered via its sister site, PropertyInvestments.co.uk.
When it launches, visitors to the platform will be able to search for properties by several criterial including yield, refurbishment requirement and type of property including HMO and student.
