Housesimple – the second largest estate agency in the North West and Yorkshire – is launching in Nottingham on 27th December 2019.
The agent is currently based in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield.
Sam Mitchell, chief executive of Housesimple, said: “We are on a mission to change estate agency for the better, by making the experience of buying and selling property simple, transparent and free.
“As of 27th December, people will be able to start selling for free in Nottingham, our first city in the Midlands and the next big step in our plans to take our free offer nationwide.
“Nottingham stands out as having one of the strongest property markets in the UK. The city has seen consistent house price growth in recent years, homes are selling in good time and very close to asking price.
“Since the start of the year, Nottingham homeowners have sold over £300 million worth of property, meaning they could have saved an estimated £4.5 million in fees if they’d sold for free – something they can now do with Housesimple.”
Rather than charging commission or upfront fees for selling homes, Housesimple earns referral fees from no-obligation selected services provided to sellers and buyers such as mortgage, conveyancing and insurance advice.
