Agents can earn over £300 per listing on platform - claim

Marketing platform TheHouseShop says letting agents can secure over £300 per property listed as it is “redefining the relationship between agents and the classified industry.” 

TheHouseShop, six years old this month, describes itself as the UK’s number 1 place for property, working with homeowners, landlords, estate agents and developers to buy, sell, rent and let property online. 

The site tells its readers: “We advertise properties on behalf of estate agents, property portals, software companies, developers and private sellers. Our inclusive approach means that you will find a unique mix of properties from a variety of sources.”

Now it has linked up with Tili, a home move assistant service which is part of the OVO Group, to offer “void management energy solutions” for letting agents. 

A statement from the platform says: “Thanks to the addition of Tili’s Home Move Assistant to TheHouseShop suite of insurance services, letting agents start earning commissions as soon as they list the property on our portal. They can now more than £300 for each property to let they list on TheHouseShop Marketplace, representing more than £10,000 per month for the vast majority of them.” 

The platform says it’s attracted thousands of agents, reaching a 20 per cent market share in the UK by the number of listings. 

It expects to get more than 30 per cent market share by the end of 2021.
