Spicerhaart has partnered with Tesco to launch iSold.com, a new internet-based estate agency service. It is being piloted in Bristol before being rolled it out on a nationwide basis.
The intention is not for iSold.com to compete head on with Spicerhaart’s existing, traditional estate agencies. Spicerhaart sees iSold.com as an alternative offering to early adopters of online shopping and internet banking services.
Tesco will be linking through from Tesco.com to the iSold.com website as well as promoting iSold.com to Tesco customers.
iSold.com spokesman Steve Shore said: “We are providing a service that offers early adopters an internet-style alternative to mainstream estate agency by offering online customers a limited menu of fixed price services. The Spicerhaart Group remains firmly committed to its class-leading High Street estate agency businesses.””
