A recently launched property portal created to rival Zoopla and Rightmove has signed up more than 5,000 agents to supply it with stock.

Chief executive Ian Springett said: “The site has hit the ground running and is now an essential destination for anyone seriously in the market for residential property.

“We have come a long way in just a few months and, with more than 5,000 offices already signed up in 2015, we are more confident than ever that we will replace Zoopla as the number two player in the market over the coming year.”
