THE Website that is for sale, the Website domain is https://www.thehomeescape.com/ to which I run under my interior design business named Pasfield and Park interiors Ltd.

I am looking to sell the website and domain if need be, we can also include all the branding assets, basically everything to run it as it is. THE was launched late 2015 with 50% of my time spent on this and 50% on her Interior design business. During 2016 2017 I turned a revenue of 120 -140k, in 2018 I secured a large interior design job for a person I can't mention but you would know as a household name to which it continues today. To be honest I have had no option but to drop the focus on "THE" website for 2018 and focus on my interior design as this was an opportunity, I could not miss…so in 2018 the revenue suffered to around 55k. What is interesting as you will see, these moneys generated in 2015,16,17 were only from around 6 or 7 properties so if you could get more properties active this proves how profitable it could be.

As mentioned in this advert, this website has endless possibilities and could pretty much sell anything, property, clothes…you name it! In total including branding it cost me around 50k to have "THE" website developed and it cost around 3k a year to run [running cost].

At the height of its activity I managed all property info, images and shop on a weekly basis, "THE" website is very easy to maintain, easily done by one person. As you will see THE website has the ability to host products and images and video. Other than your typical business running cost it is really just your time alone you need to allow for or if taking it to a new level then obviously the more properties you add you might need to consider one other person. If selling/renting Luxury holiday homes as I did, I would say you could probably manage between 60 – 100 properties before taking on someone else if putting 100% of your time in.
I am sure you will be aware that advertising is a key, but again there are ways to do this at little cost on return.

Obviously, I am selling the website [not my business] and not the guarantee of the revenue but obviously I would transfer what is on the website now for THE new buyer to pick up THE trade, I would obviously be happy to help in anyway. In truth if you have the time to put into this business and have a sense for excellent customer service this could generate hundreds of thousands if adding more properties with a healthy profit.

This is a very user-friendly website and also a mobile website…so basically everything that is amended and viewed on pc/mac desktop will also be available on THE mobile version!

I spent 2 years developing this website that would handle pretty much anything, it will sync with all the big names [Airbnb etc if required]…it will also sync with most calendars through a third-party software.

You can add or take away any search term, product, property, it truly is so diverse you can pretty much do anything with it!
It does not need to be link to the third-party booking software, but this is just the booking tool we chose, it can be linked to any other similar tool. The third-party booking tool do charge a small amount each year for each property you add, other than that you are just looking at hosting costs.

The website itself has a very simple back office with huge capability and not difficult to manage, this was our aim, to build a website that can easily be changed and adapted by someone that does not necessarily have IT skills. Just little things like uploading shop items, you can bulk upload items, discount, vouchers, the list goes on. You can produce reports for home owners, they can have access to certain things, the cleaner can access, the cleaner can be automatically informed….the list goes on and on, I had a long wish list when developing this and we covered pretty much everything!

I would transfer any properties on there, I must be honest it will need some proactive person to pick up the business again as I just have not had the time. What you will find as I am sure you will know, as soon as you have a property on board, they tend to just stay, any advertising is better than none and it is not costing them unless you sell a booking for them.

We are accepting offers on THE website, it can be made up of a one off payment or stage payments, or a mixture of both.

If you would like any further info just let me know.
All THE best!
Cleo
