Today we launch Strike.

Strike is here to redefine the way you move. Estate agency hasn't changed for 200 years, we've been overcharged and underwhelmed. It’s time for a change. 

That’s why we’re changing what it means to be an estate agent. We bring together local expertise and technology to make selling easy. And free. 

We are taking everything you love about Housesimple, making it more intuitive and adding a new mobile edge. 

Welcome to Strike.

What does this mean for existing Housesimple customers?

Strike is here to redefine the way that you move. You're going to get the same great service — and a whole lot more. We just wanted to let you know about the change.

If you’re already a Housesimple customer, we’ve made the transition to Strike a breeze.

Ready to Strike? You can head straight to the login page or read on for more details about the change.

Is everything changing?

No, there’s some things we’d never change.

We’re still all about saving you money. We still offer our fantastic free service and love to save our customers thousands of pounds. 

We still put you in control of your move. So please don’t worry, you still have the same great team and same great service. 

We support you every step of the way - we’d never change that!

So how is Strike different?

Strike is more mobile. 

We have a new app, allowing you to control your entire sale or buying process from your phone. 

For sellers looking to get on the market, you can manage your advert before you go live, directly from our app — available for iOS and Android. 

So there’s a great new app. What else?

With Strike, buying and selling is simpler and more intuitive - no confusion, no unnecessary steps, just one seamless journey. 

You can manage everything - your advert, viewings and offers - from our new Strike Hub. 

You can accept, reject and propose new times for viewings, keeping you in control. 

And with our new messaging service, you can message Strike buyers and sellers directly in a single thread once you’ve booked a viewing or had an offer - ensuring easy access to ask and answer questions.

Does this mean I have to do this on my own?

Absolutely not. We'll still support you at every stage - we’ll never change that!

Strike blends the best of technology and people - empowering you to move the way you want to. It's all about choice.

So if you find it easier to use the app to manage the process, no problem. If you want to speak to a real person, we’re always there when you need us. 

That’s one way we’re going to achieve our mission - to make moving easy. 

So what do I have to do?

You can sit back and relax!

All our vendors will soon have a shiny new ‘For Sale’ board outside their home.

The next time you go to log in online, we’ll help you move your Housesimple account into a Strike account. Simply enter the email you used to register with us and we’ll guide you through. 

From then on, you’ll be able to log into our Strike hub and our app with a simple, 4-digit code.  

We know that you’re going to love Strike — but if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, just get in touch. We’re always trying to make your experience even better and we’re always happy to hear from you.
