Infographic...disruptive new business wants to shake up the property market in UK

Subtitle is looking to open the public's eyes as to how much money they waste on agent fees

Background information

Organization name

Description of the organization and its target audience Ltd is a disruptive service that allows UK home owners to effectively market their own home to the buying public, without having to use a high street estate agent.

The vendor pays an upfront fixed fee of £399 rather than a much larger percentage of the value of their property on completion.

The vendor is provided with all the necessary tools required to market and manage the sale of their property.

This allows the owner to effectively become their own agent and connect directly with buyers. In short, we're a new service designed to save homeowners money and cut out the middle man.
