A new social network PropertyHeads.com, has been developed to provide public buyers with “an easy to use collaborative social setting to make more informed choices around the right property, tradespeople and estate agents for them”.
PropertyHeads aims to help property businesses generate greater numbers of leads and recommendations – it currently serves 50,000 users per month. Ben Davis, CEO of PropertyHeads, says, “We know how hard it can be for reputable suppliers and tradespeople across the UK to set themselves apart from the competition. So we designed PropertyHeads to be the perfect platform for the best businesses to get noticed by as many people as possible.”
Word of mouth is one of the preferred ways to find a builder, plumber, estate agent or the best neighbourhoods – PropertyHeads.com is the first website to proactively match the public with firms that friends and connections already use and trust. It suggests estate agents and other property businesses based on how connected they are to the user. They have also developed a tradesman blacklist. PropertyHeads.com currently has 10,000 property businesses and over 100,000 properties.”
