Mortgage Mole: Fool me once…

Fool me once…

The property and mortgage sectors were in good form last week as they looked to trick this wily ol’ Mole for April Fools’ Day – and it nearly worked, too. 

Robot

Estate agency eMoov.co.uk published a press release in which it claimed to be developing a fleet of robots (see picture, right) intended to carry out laborious tasks, such as producing photographs, taking measurements and drawing floor plans. 

Next, well-known tech firm MortgageBrain claimed to have created the market’s first-ever mortgage sourcing glove – yep, you guessed it, the MortgageBrain Glove. 

“For the first time, brokers will quite literally have a whole-of-market sourcing capability at their fingertips,” said Mortgage Brain chief executive Mark Lofthouse. 

Nice try, the pair of you. But you’ll both have to do a lot better than that
next year.

Good cause 

PR guru, former mortgage editor and all-round nice guy Rob Griffiths of White Dragon Communications is running in the London marathon this month for Cancer Research UK. 

Sadly, Rob’s dad passed away last September after a battle with cancer so Rob has decided to run on behalf of the charity for the second time.
