Comparison site acquires

Moving home comparison site has acquired online property forum, creating a space where its customers can ask questions and share opinions on all elements of buying, selling and renting property.

Fully incorporated into, with a tab on the home page, the forum has already benefited from significant investment and improvement since the new year. It features over 20,000 posts written by more than 12,000 existing members, on a huge range of topics including legal issues and fees, price negotiations, mortgages and surveys.

From general discussions about whether first time buyers should buy before Brexit, to specific questions about restrictive covenants and shared boundaries, the forum is packed with tips and advice from fellow buyers and sellers across the country.

A brand new ‘AIBU’ or ‘Am I Being Unreasonable?’ thread has been added, inspired by the parenting website Mumsnet, where home movers can vent their frustrations about the often complicated process. has also introduced a new panel of professionals from the conveyancing, surveying and removals sectors, who are on hand to answer users’ questions as they are submitted. Property professionals of all spectrums are invited to join the forum and contribute for free, driving new business leads. Their expertise is an endless, free resource for movers who have questions about the home move process.

Rob Houghton, CEO of said:

“ is a one stop shop for anyone moving home, so it makes sense to create a  forum where our users can interact with one another and ask questions of our professional panel too, who then have an opportunity to win new business. We’re excited about the potential of the forum to help us grow both our customer base and professional partnerships.”

Brian Turner, founder of, said:

“We were looking for someone who could develop the Homemove community further and take it to the next level, not least through being able to integrate commercial services in a way that would benefit and support the existing community.”
