Online agent Emoov is said to have put itself up for sale, amid rumours of a cash squeeze.
According to Sky News, Emoov has appointed a stockbroker, Arden Partners, to oversee an auction.
Foxtons is said to have held preliminary talks to acquire Emoov which only recently acquired Tepilo and Urban.
This evening, Emoov founder Russell Quirk told EYE that the rumours were “not accurate by any means”.
However, he declined to comment further.
He said: “I can’t comment to confirm or deny any such speculation.”
