Is Zoopla Plus, the best portal for selling/letting commercial property?

When it comes to selling/letting commercial property, landlords/vendors are very limited to options that are available. They more often than not, look for high street agents that charge them on a percentage basis. However, there are online/hybrid agencies that are able to provide a service for commercial landlords/vendors, like listing their properties on advertising portals. 99home is one such agency, allowing for DIY commercial listings to be made by landlords/vendors so they can sell/let their property with ease via 99home. 

99home has two packages available for sales and lettings. 

  • Zoopla+ : Zoopla+ includes property listings on Zoopla, OnTheMarket, Estate Gazette, PrimeLocation, Boomin, Facebook and more. All listings are done through 99home.

  • Rightmove+ : Rightmove+ includes monthly commercial property marketing on Rightmove, as well as Zoopla+ advertising. 

  1. Portals that allow commercial listings

The UK has multiple major portals for property listings.

These portals are:

 Zoopla | Rightmove | PrimeLocation | OnTheMarket (OTM) | Gumtree | Boomin | Estate Gazette

Each of these portals accept marketing for commercial sales/lettings, with Estate Gazette being predominantly a commercial property portal which covers properties nationwide.   

  1. Property portals with a vast reach 

The five major portals that are mainly used for commercial properties. 

Are the following:

Estate Gazette | Zoopla | PrimeLocation | Rightmove | OnTheMarket (OTM) 


These five giants are the big leagues when it comes to commercial property listings. Coming in close though, is Boomin looking to become the sixth. However, with Gumtree being able to pull in results, they managed to stay just above boomin, taking the lead between the two portals. And to keep this competitive edge as sharp as ever. Each portal is able to cover nationwide. 

  1. Who is the bigger and better portal? Rightmove, Zoopla or Estate Gazette

It can be extremely difficult to say for sure, which property portal truly is the biggest and best.

These portals being the three giants:

Rightmove | Zoopla | Estate Gazette

For residential sales. Rightmove, as of 31 May 2022 has taken the lead. Commercial properties however, are a different ball game. 

Here is some commercial listings data that was collected on the 3rd of June 2022. Showing a comparison between Zoopla, Rightmove and Estate Gazette. All listings being from the London area.
