Doorsteps, the online estate agent launched less than a year ago and which says it is worth £12m, has sailed over its crowdfunding target in little more than a week.
By yesterday afternoon, 137 investors had piled in a total of £405,600 – above the £400,000 target.
The business is predicting that digital market share of estate agency will rise from 4% to 50% in the next three years.
It is also claiming to be the UK’s 41st largest estate agency. In its pitch, it sets out ambitions to be the country’s biggest agent, and to achieve the market value attached to Purplebricks within two years.
Its biggest investor so far has put in £20,00.
