A new networking service for property insiders, including landlords and investors, is being launched by two brothers.
The UK Homes Network is the brainchild of Chris Tremlett, who has been in the industry for 12 years as an agent and marketeer. He’s working on the project with his brother David, who also has an agency background.
Their new app allows users to connect directly with developers, investors, agents, landlords and other industry experts. He believes there’s a demonstrable need for UK Homes Network because social media platforms such as LinkedIn attract often unwelcome ‘outside’ advertisers like recruiters and website developers.
The platform is a web-based and mobile-based App where people can find and talk to others working in any aspect of the industry across the whole of the UK.
“UK Homes Network will enable users to supercharge their own networks, explore limitless opportunities and stay ahead of industry trends—all in one space. It will enable us to create a collective voice to effect meaningful change with policymakers. It is the first and only platform of its type available in the UK” claims Chris Tremlett, who is based in Coventry.
“I started developing it last year. I wanted to modernise and streamline the networking process and make it easier for people to not only develop their personal brands but make it easier for them to reach out directly to other professionals – that’s what UK Homes Network is all about. We want to encompass everyone in the property industry and be as inclusive as possible.”
The service will be subscription-based: the cheapest subscription is £12.99 per month, increasing to £49.99 a month for the largest industry organisations.
“There will be a standard tier for individuals at £12.99 per month, an influencer tier for people wanting to share content like podcasts and videos and there’ll be an industry tier for larger businesses where they’ll have access to more streaming services and be able to share courses and events. They’ll also be able to show sponsored content for monetisation. Additionally, there’s a space within the App where members can share commercial information like land deals and property investment opportunities” according to Chris Tremlett.
“Because we’re using a subscription model, those users who express an interest are actively motivated to see those posts because they want to do business. There’s no spam and no algorithms - if you want to post it will be seen by the right people because everyone on the platform is a property professional looking for opportunities or sharing knowledge and experience.”
The brothers will be promoting the UK Homes Network at the Property Investor Show at the ExCel in London in April but there is more information on it now on the platform’s own website here.
