Barclays has launched a property price comparison app which it aims to develop into a lead generation tool for brokers.
The Barclays Homeowner App currently allows smart phone users to search for property listings and call estate agents and brokers directly.
Barclays says it also intends to develop the app over time into a functioning lead generation option for mortgage advisers.
The app is available to all customers through the Apple and Android app stores.
Coreco director Andrew Montlake says: “It is a very good idea and what they are planning to do with it is really good. You can get the properties from Zoopla and work out how much the mortgage would be on it and then, in phase two, you can click to speak to a broker. It is a lender doing an app for a good purpose and I think they should be applauded for that.”
