Estate agent Housesimple has expanded into the Midlands with the launch of its free service in the City of Nottingham.
Homeowners in the City of Nottingham postcodes NG1 to NG8 can now book a free home valuation on housesimple’s website, ahead of the official launch of its free service on 27 December.
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 27 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 £300m worth of property, meaning they could have saved an estimated £4.5m in fees if they’d sold for free – something they can now do with Housesimple.
“We’re excited to make moving simple in Nottingham and save homeowners thousands in fees. Looking ahead to the New Year we will be expanding into even more cities and towns across the country.”
Rather than charging commission or upfront fees for selling homes Housesimple earns referral fees from mortgage, conveyancing and insurance advice provided to buyers and sellers.
