New online platform to connect UK’s property industry
A new online platform, The Landsite, has been launched, which connects the UK’s professional property industry
The new platform, named The Landsite, connects the various moving parts of the UK’s professional property industry and aims to become the go-to online portal for all businesses and professions associated with the property world.
The purpose of The Landsite is to source and attract information from the UK’s professional property sector and centralise it within a digital hub. It offers landlords, tenants, buyers, professional services, property related businesses and independent users access to professional services, land and commercial property, news & analytics and business services.
Assal, a property investor and developer with over thirty years’ experience, took the decision to create the new platform due to frustrations sourcing both land for new development and reliable professional service businesses.
He said that his vision has been to connect the various sectors of the property industry into one easy to access hub – forming a community of professionals and their businesses, focused entirely on the professional property sector. Landlords, property professionals and commercial organisations can rent, sell or buy land and commercial property, promote their professional services and businesses and/or source information and data from a central point.
Any business operating in the professional property industry, such as solicitors, architects, surveyors, developers and financial professionals, will be able to showcase their services and raise awareness of their brand through The Landsite.
Over eight months in development and with a six-figure investment behind the project, Assal is confident that the platform he’s created will solve the problem of clutter and fragmentation in the professional property sector and will bring together the community by organising relevant information and making it universally accessible in a single destination.
Having gone through a comprehensive research phase to investigate what land and property professionals are looking for, they have developed a functional and intuitive platform, which they believe will clear a path through the jungle of the land and commercial property world, he said.
He added that the Landsite supports and connects the sub-systems of the UK’s professional property industry and offers landlords, tenants, buyers, professional services, property related businesses and independent users access via digital channels to stock (land and commercial property); data (news and analytics) and business services.
With a view to creating a community network for property professionals – the largest in the UK ultimately – one of the additional features of the platform is that land and property can be uploaded by agents and developers themselves via a user friendly, step-by-step dashboard that will give them direct access to active investors, buyers, landlords and tenants.
A second phase, already at development stage, will enable registered users of The Landsite to connect, network and converse in a forum setting with communication features such as instant messaging planned.
The concept has already captured the attention of overseas investors keen to invest in UK land and commercial property but who are currently restricted by the logistics of managing the process from international locations.
Uniquely, they are a portal dedicated to supporting the UK’s land and commercial property sector and all its related businesses through information and knowledge, concluded Assal.
The Landsite has been created to bring the country’s property community together in one network so that they can access the information they need in a single place.
