OnTheMarket last night announced that it has cracked the 5,000 membership barrier, after recruiting 800 new branches since the start of the year. It reiterated it is on course to topple Zoopla from second place behind Rightmove.
OTM said the 5,000 branches now contracted to it represent some 2,500 agent firms. It said 90% have removed their listings from Zoopla.
The 5,000 figure was its ambitious target at launch on January 26.
OTM has now reached the milestone rather later, just over two months of going live.
