Mobility friendly homes
06 June, 2013 | Web design
Resource Techniques are thrilled to announce the unveiling of mobilityfriendlyhomes.co.uk new website.
Mobility Friendly Homes offers an array of services and is the best place to buy, sell or let easy access homes that have been specifically designed or adapted to suit someone with mobility difficulties.
Mike Reid, Director at Mobilityfriendlyhomes.co.uk said “we are delighted with what Trudie and everyone else at Resource Techniques have done for us in creating this new website. The way Mobility Friendly Homes promotes property does not fit the normal estate agency model and for this reason we were dubious about “getting it to work”. But our doubts were unfounded. Resource Techniques have tailored their “white label” package to do just what we want. It took a few days to tweak their design, but the changes were met with enthusiasm and there was no feeling that we were being difficult. The end result is very pleasing and many users have commented on how easy the site is to use.”
The History of Mobility Friendly Homes
Having launched back in 2005 with a Resource Techniques website, in 2007 they won the Daily Mail Best Portal Award (coming second to Rightmove). They went into the doldrums with the recession, and it is only because of developments with Resource Techniques software and Zoopla’s growth that have made it practical to re-launch.
Mobility Friendly Homes are purely an advertising site and do not charge a fee or commission. They offer properties to buy or rent and these come from agents and house builders. As all new developments have to be accessible it would help an agent win instructions if they suggested advertising through MobilityFriendlyHomes.co.uk to people who actually want good access. We say “want” because many buyers recognise that an accessible property is good for anyone.
Many agents are wary about taking on mobility friendly properties because they are embarrassed and do not know how to promote them. Also, they are reluctant to spend on additional advertising. However, when their clients realise that we exist they are often asked to advertise with us and the vendor pays Mobility Friendly Homes direct for this service we provide.
How it could benefit you
Since re-launching in April Mobilityfriendlyhomes.co.uk have had one West Sussex agent to whom they have referred about 15 enquiries so far and a developer in London who has had a similar number.
Through using Mobility Friendly Homes, agents can show their clients that they are caring and henceforth their credibility is enhanced.
Here at Resource Technique we are truly pleased that we were able to work with Mobilityfriendlyhomes.co.uk in helping them to create this fantastic new website that is a great example of opening up a niche market that is definitely in demand these days.
Trudie Woods, the Web Services Account Manager at Resource Techniques, said “we are so pleased that Mobility Friendly Homes have come back on board fit and fighting, we look forward to supporting them again.”
Mobility Friendly Homes have been gracious enough to offer a 25% discount to recipients of this newsletter for all instructions received in June 2013, if you have any further questions feel free to contact them via their website: www.mobilityfriendlyhomes.co.uk/OurOfficeContactUs.aspx
