Bradford & Bingley Building Society has unveiled plans for a property portal in a partnership with Internet service...
Due to be launched in the autumn, the portal will offer Freeserve's 3.4 million users a complete picture of homes on the market in their area. The building society declined to reveal its overall investment in the project.
The portal will also have links to financial services from Bradford & Bingley in a bid to offer a one-stop-shop for homebuyers.
Charcolonline, the online mortgage broker acquired by the building society earlier this year, will provide mortgage advice on more than 45 lenders.
The building society said, "It helps us get a real foothold in the Internet market without having to set-up our own Internet arm."
The portal will be developed mainly by Bradford & Bingley and Freeserve staff.
