Showcase

Buying and selling a home shouldn’t be so painful. Estate agencies & conveyancers haven’t changed – it’s why it still takes seven months to sell a home. The system works great, just not for you – the seller. We’re on a mission to collapse the conveyancing process down to a 2-4 week process, with the ambition to reach one day conveyancing thereafter.

Problem

Ever sold a property before? You know how chaotic & stressful it can be. Bogged down with paperwork, unexplained delays, questions from buyers & conveyancers, worries about the deal falling through. That is why sales still take seven months to complete.

Solution

We’re an estate agent & conveyancer in one. We prepare the property for a sale by doing all the paperwork upfront, allowing us to avoid all the common pitfalls. By the time we have a buyer, your conveyancer will have raised enquiries and resolved them. We average 57 days currently – we’re aiming for 30

Market

There are 1.6 million instructions per year, with just over 900k completions. SDLT holiday & 95% mortgages will keep the market buoyant but the pressure is resulting in slower completion times. Now is the time to capitalise on poor
service. What Purplebricks did for pricing, we want to do for speed & simplicity.

Traction

So far we’ve listed 46 properties, 12 under offer and 19 completed. We have a further 73 pending valuations, awaiting instruction. We’re averaging 57
days from offer to completion. Our application is with CLC for approval to be
opened up as a law firm.
