Finally, some good news …

Property slump claims 20% of Rightmove staff

Rightmove, Britain's biggest property website, announced a 20% cut in staff numbers yesterday as it warned the housing slump would last well into next year. The move, part of the portal's plans to cut costs by £5m, came as the British Bankers' Association (BBA) revealed that UK mortgage approvals in September were 57% down on the same month last year. About 60 of Rightmove's 300 staff face redundancy as the company scales back its overseas business in response to dwindling demand.

  • I’m not sure why you have a grudge against rightmove. As I understand it, they are not property sellers like EAs – they just advertise stuff. Their website seems pretty good to me.
