Although our recent poll isn't yet closed, we wanted to give you an update of the results so far – some of them are eye-opening!
Of agents who haven't already left Rightmove, 99% say they're either "considering leaving" (90%) or "leaving at end of their contract" (9%).
For example, we were surprised to see that membership levels of Rightmove and OnTheMarket were almost the same - although this may be because a number of you have already left Rightmove in frustration.
78% of you are currently still members of Rightmove and 21% are ex-members - but these figures don't tell the whole story...
Of those of you who haven't left already, a whopping 90% are considering leaving if the discount isn't extended or the pricing model radically changed. A further 9% have stated they're leaving at the end of their contract. Only 1% are happy with the current 75% discount.
Of the ex-members of Rightmove, just over half (52%) handed in their notice after Rightmove's initial response to Covid-19, while the remainder did so prior to this date.
Nearly three quarters (73%) of those polled said that they would only be happy if Rightmove's prices were in the sub-£500 range (per office, per month).
Just 5% of our database thinks that Rightmove currently represents the best value for money of portals in our industry. Exactly half voted for OnTheMarket, and 37% for Zoopla. 8% said "Other".
We actually believe the time is ripe for a new approach to portals which turns the outdated model on its head, making them either completely free for agents, or even paying them for their valuable data.
Thank you to all of you who’ve completed our survey so far – if you haven't already you can still have your say here.
