As I mentioned in a previous article (Frustrations with OpenRent. Who else?), I am completely put off with OpenRent and won't be using them any longer.
This got me thinking and started doing some research on what other companies I could use to get my property on Rightmove where the price isn't ridiculous. My previous go-to was Upad but at £149 just for to advertise seems a bit pricey to me.
Best company I found so far is 99 Home - Only £49 to advertise your property which also includes a full tenant referencing worth £40.
That seems like a great deal. Interested to know if anyone has used them before or another company you would recommend.
> "Their pricing is the same as Openrent."
Openrent is £30. Easy property is £100
What part is the same?
I use OpenRent because it gives you access to RightMove for less than £30. I don't need all the other bells and whistles so am very reluctant to pay for what won't be used.
Has anyone found anything that compares with OR's basic plan just to get on RightMove?

Yes Chris, 99 home.
OpenRent charge £30. If you then reference a tenant, that's £20. So £50 just for the basics.
Like I stated in my original post, with 99home, it's £49 which includes referencing and one free day premium listing on rightmove. Here is the link
So if anything, you get more with 99 home.
Chris how much do you pay for referencing a tenant? Do you do that via OpenRent?
I do agree with your last paragraph though. Surprised there isn't more competition just for a no-frills, no-nonsese service of getting your property on rightmove.
Ok fair enough I see your point. As you wouldn't benefit from 1 free reference from 99 home, there would be no value for you to pay £50 instead of £30.
What about Property Tribes self-managing lettings partner Upad?

I have used them in the past and I didn't have any issues with them, but personally i'm just looking for a cheap way to get my property on Rightmove.
Like Chris says above, not looking for other bells and whistles, and at £149, that's pretty steep.
Openrent's offering of £29 is very competitive, but as my recent experience has shown, you get what you pay for. They are not without their faults plus customer service is non-existent.
99 home's offering seems promising. Let's see how it goes.
