20 years of evolution in property


Rightmove launched back in 2000 – before the invent of 3G and the iPhone really kicked off the digital age. A lot has changed in the property industry in those 20 years – we’ve seen the rise and fall of property prices and lending around the credit crunch, a complete overhaul of stamp duty and a multitude of Housing Ministers.

So how much has the industry progressed over the last 20 years? And what does the future hold for property professionals?

To help us answer these questions, we invited some friends from the wider industry to share their experiences, insights and expectations as we celebrate 20 years of evolution in property.
