How to Sell Your House on Rightmove

April 25, 2024 by Irini Sala

Rightmove is the UK's largest and most popular property portal so there is no better place to advertise the sale of your property. For a monthly subscription you can expose your house to the widest audience of potential buyers across the whole of Britain both on the web and mobile platforms.

Unfortunately you have to be an estate agent to be able to list a property directly on Rightmove, but with Emoov this listing is included as standard in all of our packages at no extra cost.

How does it work?

Having helped drag the property market into the digital age Rightmove offer a wide variety of additional tools to help you sell your property even quicker.

Not only do they give you the basic option of searching by property type, price, location and number of bedrooms. But they also allow you to tailor your search to very specific areas using the drawing tool, provide information on local schools, transport links, similar sold prices in the area, crime rates and more.

They have moved far beyond simply listing houses online and now offer the total experience. On Rightmove you can calculate and find a mortgage, organise a removal company, check broadband speed and availability in the area and plan your move down to the last detail.

Go Premium with Rightmove

Rightmove also offer the opportunity to improve your listing through their premium listing option.

The premium listing is a popular add on and Rightmove say those that opt for it sell on average 30% quicker than a regular listing. Premium listings also receive a far greater number of hits as a result.

The premium listing is ideal for those whose property has not received as much interest as they may have liked and can bolster traffic to your ad.

It is also perfect for those out of the ordinary listings as it allows you to present more than one photo on the face of your advert. So if your property has unusual features or a particularly stunning interior then a premium listing could be perfect for you.

Can I advertise on other platforms while advertising on Rightmove?

2015 saw the launch of, a portal designed by traditional agents for traditional agents, which is apparent with a number of flaws in their model.

The most notable of which being that they limit all agents signed with them to advertising your property on just one of the two major portals. Forcing them to choose between Rightmove and Zoopla not only limits your agent in terms of his selling potential, but decreased the shortfall of potential buyers viewing your property.

This not only results in less exposure for the seller but results in your property going unseen and stagnating on the market. At Emoov we wouldn't dream of being so idiotic, so we list your property on both the major portals as well as Prime Location and as standard for all of our packages. So if you're thinking of listing with an agent that is with, maybe you should think again.
