We’ve been busy generating coverage for the country’s newest entry into the online property sector – Settled – and their plans to slash the £3.5bn a year home owners pay to estate agents!
Unlike its better know rivals, Settled is the only service to completely cut estate agents out of the action when selling homes.
A key point of distinction about Settled is that it’s a pure tech company. It doesn’t impose a barrier between buyers and sellers and in doing so it’s dispelling the myth that owners have to rely on ‘expert’ middlemen – and pay their fees – to help them sell their property.
This unique disruptive approach is reflected in the fact Settled has the lowest fees around – and that sellers pocket an average £5,000 in savings.
In a piece of encouraging news, Settled’s early success has already caught the eye of investors.
Charged with generating some noise about their £1m fund raising, we quickly got to work and obtained coverage in a range of titles including Tech City News, Estate Agent Today, Startups.co.uk, Property Portal and Fleximize.
And more coverage is in the pipeline – including this property tech feature in Elite Business magazine.
