‘UK first’ not-for-profit estate agent


What is claimed to be the UK’s first community-led not-for-profit estate agency is being set up in Cornwall.

imove Cornwall is the brainchild of Mark Green, and aims to provide home owners with a cost-effective alternative to high street agents, with all profits going to local charities and other good causes.

Green explained: “We list the property in the usual way – professional photographs, floor plans, provide a ‘for sale’ sign etc – then their property is listed on property portal websites.

“Vendors from there take control of the selling process, showing buyers their home and negotiating a sale. We provide constant support for each customer to guide them through the process.

imove Cornwall is charging homeowners a one-off fee of £399 to list their property.
