The house that mobile built

Barclays and Savills Auctions partner to make house purchase a mobile experience

First customer uses Pingit to spend £23,000 on a deposit – bagging the home of their dreams while on the go

Barclays and leading specialist property auctioneers Savills Auctions have created a partnership enabling customers to buy houses on their mobile phones – in what is believed to be a world first.

The Barclays Pingit mobile payments service has already been used by a homeowner who was able to put down a £23,000 deposit on a new home in Mitcham, South London.
