House buying process moves online

Online estate agents Get-Set-Go have teamed up with Email Mortgages to allow buyers and sellers to find properties and arrange mortgages online.

Consumers can now use Get-Set-Go’s online estate agency service to review properties, register and book viewings.

Customers can then go on to secure a mortgage online via Email Mortgages, conducting the advice process through email.

Get-Set-Go will also negotiate offers, check buyers’ ability to proceed, and offer the facility for sellers to track the marketing process of their property.

Martin Gilsenan, corporate relationship executive at Email Mortgages, says: “For those customers who want to conduct their property purchase or sale and look for their next mortgage online we now offer a truly joined-up solution.

“This means that Get-Set-Go customers can not only buy and sell property online but they are also able to organise their mortgage finance in exactly the same way.”

Mike Crane, managing director of Get-Set-Go, says: “We are delighted with this association with Email Mortgages.

“Both Get-Set-Go and Email Mortgages utilise all the convenience and flexibility of the internet, allowing our clients to fit home-moving preparations into any busy schedule.”
