Area by Jason Briscoe
Area is the new way to buy your next home, interacting with local estate agents so you don't have to, guiding you through the buying process from start to finish.
My wife and I sold our tiny flat in London in 2015 in exchange for a 5-bedroom farmhouse in Worcestershire. The process of selling and buying was super slow and frustrating. We spent countless hours hunting for new homes on Rightmove and Zoopla and were constantly bombarded by agents looking to flog us properties we weren’t interested in. You deal with more stakeholders than you can begin to remember and the journey from start-to-finish feels heavily disconnected. The property industry hasn’t evolved much and knew there had to be an easier way.
Say hello to Area – home buying, made simple.
I came up with a few ideas on how you could reimagine the home buying and selling journey and pitched the concept to one of London’s largest estate agents – thankfully, they invested. Currently there is a team of amazing engineers, designers, operators and advisors in East London helping bring the Area platform to life.
What do you think of the project?
