Are property portals necessary in 2022?

The high buyer demand we’re seeing largely obviates the need for a property listing aggregation site.

We’re seeing lots of reports of 20 – 25% of sales taking place off-portals.

Portals fail to present a full picture of the market.
With currently 19 or 29 buyers for every property (which ever report you prefer to quote), people waiting for portal alerts or manual checking the feeds themselves are risking a ‘snooze, you lose’ scenario.

Many properties are snaffled up on the first viewing (FOMO in action).
Low stock levels cause agents a huge problem of a different variety; the return on the investment they receive from advertising on the portals.

Many agencies are spending £2000+ every month alone on @rightmove at a time when they have the lowest number of available properties.
