    The original idea for the site was a free property listing site similar to strike.co.uk.

    That seems to have been abandoned and it is now simply offering mortgages. I can't see how this utilises the name free.co.uk? 9 out of 10 mortgage brokers are free, as they make their money from the lender for the referral.

    The name could be worth £400k, but it wouldn't be due to the current site or concept.

    only just seen this thread while browsing the archives - looks like the mortgage idea didn’t work out.

    Great to read all the opinions on what it could be or should be worth :)
    - and from a pure ROI perspective, without accounting for any development costs, it’s only got to net £50 a day to be making a 10% yield.

    Should be able to do that with a directory of free trial offers from credible suppliers, who would pay for the leads…

    i’ve given them my email address so made them a £1 to sell on to spammers, while I wait and see what ‘freebie’ they drop for me on Monday :D

    I like the way you think. I guest there isn't many uses for it otherwise.
