The history of Rightmove
Rightmove.co.uk was started in 2000 by the top four corporate estate agencies at the time: Countrywide, Connells, Halifax and Royal and Sun Alliance. The website was initially free to list with charging introduced in January 2002.
The service offering was extended to new homes developers in 2002 and in 2004 when they began charging lettings agents.
In 2007 Rightmove first introduced property advertising products allowing for agents and new homes developers to differentiate their properties on site with a further suite of display advertising products being launched in late 2010 allowing customers to promote their brand and talk about themselves in a format similar to traditional newspaper advertising. Today their advertising products account for over a third of total revenues.
