Nestoria signs partner deals for property search

Property search engine Nestoria has signed three new partner deals. Channel 4’s 4Homes has integrated Nestoria’s search engine here, as has major national UK national newspaper The Independent here. In addition, free financial news paper CityAM has also started using the service for property search. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Nestoria has racked up some useful kudos in that it’s the only startup – apparently ever? – to have been given a case study by both Google and Yahoo!. There’s no doubting it has a talented team of developers. However, Nestoria remains privately backed, and it remains to be seen if partner deals such as the above will pique any interest from the investment community. Interestingly, property search engine competitor Dothomes meanwhile has publicly declared investment from The Accelerator Group (TAG), Arts Alliance, and Samos Investments, announced in August 2007, which will presumably stand them in good stead for at least the next year.
