Guild and Fine & Country agents get six months’ free listings on Zoopla

Member agents of either organisations are offered the free deal without having to leave Rightmove, as Zoopla's announced deal last week required.

Fine & Country licensees and Guild of Property Professionals members can now use Zoopla free for six months following a deal with the two organisations’ parent company, Epropservices.

The co-funded offer follows Zoopla’s announcement earlier this week that it is suspending its portal fees to estate agents.

However, this new deal doesn’t ask agents to leave Rightmove, whereas the Zoopla direct offer gives them nine months free if they leave Rightmove, with up to five months free if they don’t.

Epropservices executive director Jon Cooke says he and colleagues at the Guild and Fine & Country are passionate about ensuring the sector’s long-term success, which includes picking the right partners.

“The need to act now is clear, as evidenced by the Government’s rescue package, and so we have built upon our strong relationship with Zoopla and created a package that will have a genuine impact on our members’ and licensees’ businesses over the next six months,” says Cooke.

Existing and new

The offer – to both existing and new Zoopla customers – is available until the end of April and starts for six months from 1st May.Interested members and licensees are being encouraged to get in touch with their Guild or Fine & Country representative as soon as possible.

The Guild and Fine & Country have recently announced other new packages, including half-price membership fees for the Guild for six months, and Cooke tells The Negotiator that other deals will be announced in the next few weeks.

  1. Given that Real Estate in the UK is full of different bodies, some leveraging better prices on goods and services through a buyers club protocol, why is there not just one body looking after all ‘property professionals?’

    For sure a collaborative approach is required to get through what may well be the lowest number of completions in a single year for decades. As one unified body, much can be done, including help with streamlining and modernising working practices. Not so much red tape from above, more a listening to the voice of every agent.

    This would be a great movement in lobbying government, understanding change within the industry and using collective data and experiences to help each and ever person in an industry that is becoming more and more pressurised.

    The recent instant bonding of agents over the property portal wars shows if you read the forums that agents are tired of being kicked around and told what to do, they just want to get on, pay a fair price for a service or product and ensure that they have the tools and knowledge set to do what is becoming an evermore thankless task.
