UK digital property marketplace TheHouseShop has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube, allowing investors and the general public to own a part of the company.
Launched in 2016 by ex-MD of CitiGroup, Sebastien Goldenberg, and serial property entrepreneur, Nick Marr, TheHouseShop was created with the aim of bringing the entire property market under one roof.
Unlike the big agent-only portals, Rightmove and Zoopla, TheHouseShop developed an ‘Amazon-style’ marketplace with private individuals and estate agents sitting alongside each other, by offering them free access to the platform.
Nick Marr, co-founder of TheHouseShop, said: “Modern consumers want to see all their options in one place, but until now, none of the main players in the property market have delivered a platform that meets this demand. TheHouseShop is here to change that.
