LONDON, January 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
TV property expert Phil Spencer has taken a shot for homebuyers everywhere by firing an estate agent out of a giant cannon for the launch of a new online game - Angry Buyers.
The game - produced by online conveyancing firm In-Deed.net - allows players to take out their frustrations on estate agents, property lawyers and mortgage brokers by firing them at buildings, with the chance to get their mortgage or rent paid for six months.
Angry Buyers has launched at a time when frustration with the homebuying process is at high, with the company estimates that 531,000 home sales fell through inthe final months of 2011, with a lack of mortgage finance and poor legal services frequently atfault.
Property expert Phil Spencer comments:
"With more than half a million property deals falling through at the end of last year primarily due to a lack of available mortgage finance -it's no surprise buyers are angry."
"To help remedy this, I've teamed with online conveyancers In-Deed.net to launch Angry Buyers - a new online game where players can let off steam by firing estate agents and property lawyers out of a cannon for the chance to win their rent or mortgage paid for six months."
