Member letting agents will now be able to display the kitemark on Rightmove’s market appraisal and price comparable tool, the Best Price Guide.

According to Tim Bannister, Head of Lettings at Rightmove, it forms a natural part of the organisation’s ongoing work to help member agents showcase their expertise and industry credentials to tenants and landlords.

Tim Bannister said: “Rightmove has recently added the SAFE agent logo to the list of affiliations that lettings agents are able to display via Rightmove. Rightmove supports efforts to raise and promote professional standards in the property industry. That’s why we are happy to provide a platform for those lettings agents who are registered with the SAFEagent campaign to display the logo on Rightmove. This forms part of Rightmove’s on-going work to help member agents showcase their expertise and industry credentials to tenants and landlords.”

John Midgley, chair of the SAFEagent steering group, reinforced how important this type of exposure is for SAFEagent:

“We’re delighted to see the New Year get off to a running start with this pledge from Rightmove. Here is a great opportunity for SAFEagents, giving them greater visibility to landlords and tenants. We would urge all SAFEagents to remember that if you are on Rightmove – display the SAFEagent logo”.

Over 1,600 letting agents have now signed up to SAFEagent. In addition to Government support, key organizations in the industry including Which, Citizens Advice Bureau, Shelter, Crisis, The Property Ombudsman, Consumer Focus, National Union of Students, OFT, GLA and Trading Standards Institute have all allied themselves to SAFEagent. Key suppliers to the sector are also standing behind the campaign – for example, HomeLet and GMG have led the way in pledging their backing to it.

Rightmove’s Best Price Guide gives access to over 10 million marketed properties, including currently available and archived properties. Agents use the comparable report on valuations to help ensure a landlord’s property is marketed at the right price and is therefore let more quickly.

The report, accessed through Rightmove’s member area RightmovePlus, shows comparable properties chosen by the agent and can be printed for use in meetings or emailed directly to the landlord. In October alone, over 8,900 lettings agents printed or saved 40,525 Best Price Guide reports on Rightmove.
