Advertise With Gumtree

What is Gumtree?

Gumtree is an extensive online network of classified adverts and community websites. There are two types of advert offered; free or paid depending on the product category and geography. The website covers sixty cities across six countries, and it’s currently the UK’ largest website for local community classifieds.

Why use Gumtree?

Quite simply put, because you can advertise two properties free of charge, it receives a lot of web traffic and it’s easy to set up your advert if you choose not to enlist the services of a letting agent.

What will you need to do?

You have two options. You can either create an account [My Gumtree] or just post an advert ad hoc, the choice is yours; but remember if you have multiple properties to offer, then it’s worth being able to track your ads via your account.
