The partnership between Citylets and GSPC got underway yesterday with client listings for west central Scotland* now appearing on gspc.co.uk
The deal, a new and exclusive arrangement between Citylets and GSPC, compliments our existing relations with other local companies such as ESPC and is consistent with our aim to work with local brands to preserve choice for Scottish letting agents for the future in the local property portal market.
Some UK-wide portals are still keen to network with local Scottish portals…no wonder- it assists them enter the local market. For them, networking is a means to an end as opposed to an end in itself. After all, they need properties for their websites and what better way than to be handed the lot from a local site.
As the pioneer of networking, our view is that after a year of consolidation in the UK property portal market in 2012 it is no longer safe to continue these non-local networking activities. They represent a clear conflict of interest to Scottish letting agents who ultimately pick up the tab if portal competition is ultimately reduced as a result.
GSPC is the largest property marketing network in the West of Scotland with 1000s of daily visitors and we are delighted to be able to offer such a prestigious, local brand.
There is no charge or premium requested from our clients for this extra exposure with the Citylets proprietary brand remaining central to our product offering.
* Glasgow City, Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, Ayrshire, Inverclyde, Dunbartonshire, Stirlingshire (G Postcodes only). Listings for some estate agents may be excluded…please contact us for more details.
