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.
