Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the innovator behind EasyJet, is planning to enter the residential property market with EasyProperty. The new venture could involve itself in rental property, providing a new, cut-price agency service, as well as working on home sales.
The venture, trailed in a report in the Telegraph newspaper, is being worked up for an expected summer 2014 launch, but the name and website have been registered. Robert Ellice, formerly with estate agency Clarke Hillyer, is working on the project. “We are going to shake up the property market to make buying, selling, renting and letting simple, quick and cost effective”, promises the website.
Let’s just hope the walls don’t have to be orange.
