Kensington launch Property Price Challenge

The game puts intermediaries’ property price knowledge to the test, asking them to estimate the sale price of five example properties on which Kensington has recently offered mortgages.

They will be awarded points for the accuracy of each estimate and at the end of the game they can submit their score to see where they rank on the leaderboard and be entered into the prize draw to win an Apple iPad.

Entries to the prize draw are limited to one per intermediary, but brokers can double their chance of winning, with a second entry into the draw, if they refer a friend to play the game.

The game is available now at http://propertypricechallenge.co.uk

Earlier this week Kensington announced it had cut the rates on its residential and buy-to-let products, expanded its distribution to the whole market and made applications even easier, with the roll-out of its online system, E-KWIP, to all intermediaries.

Charles Morley, head of sales and product development at Kensington, said: “With so much going on in our industry it can sometimes be easy to overlook our main purpose, which is to help people to buy their homes. So, to celebrate the full launch of E-KWIP, we wanted to involve brokers in a way that reflects that purpose.

“All of the properties in the Kensington Property Price Challenge are based upon real homes that we have helped people to buy in recent months and, with Kensington mortgages now available to the whole intermediary market we are looking forward to extending that opportunity to an even greater number of customers who are overlooked by the high street lenders.”
