Accelerate your enquiries by 79% or more

Featured Property fast-tracks your listing to the top of the page so it can’t be missed when it matches someone’s search criteria.

Our data shows that commercial properties that are featured generate, on average, 65% more enquiries than a standard listing. In some sectors, results are often much greater than this average.

To truly maximise your exposure, combine a Featured Property with a Premium Listing to boost your views by another 14%, on average. Premium Listing interrupts the user journey in the search results, showcasing your property with four photos, more text and a highlighted key feature.

What to do now:  If you’re a landlord, speak to your agent to ask about making your advert a Featured Property and/or Premium Listing. If you’re an agent, book a call back with your Account Manager to discuss in more detail.
