Upestates Online estate agency & will be expanding with 7 new offices in Birmingham Leicester & Nottingham
The agency expects to list at least 600 properties in 2015, double the number of listings in 2014.
Up Estates offers three low cost fee payment structures to clients. Its services include free property valuations, photography, for sale boards, matching to Up Estates’ local database and marketing on the most successful online property sites.
Up Estates has plans to expand and roll out its business model to other regional centres in the UK. From January 2016, over a 12 month period, it plans to open at least seven new local offices in target areas including Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham.
Radius Equity’s investment will fund the growth plan.
Gary Robins, director at Radius Equity, said: “The real estate sector is evolving rapidly and Up Estates is leading the way as a regional agency with online capabilities.
“Homeowners are becoming increasingly reliant on online platforms to find property, but sellers are missing out on the personalised regional service of traditional agencies.
“Online sites focused on national coverage don’t have the ability to market your property personally and cannot offer practical services such as house showings or accurate property valuations.
