An estate agent has called for the industry to unite behind OnTheMarket – as a way of reining in Rightmove.
Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram, Perth, suggests that agents could list exclusively on OTM.
Bell Ingram is primarily a chartered surveying firm but Warden heads up its estate agency business across five offices.
He said the firm has recently had its Rightmove prices raised by £150 per month per branch, to £950 per month per branch.
