Could Amazon be about to launch a property service?

The speculation, which began on Tuesday in the States, was kicked off by the discovery of this, a “hire a realtor” box marked “coming soon”, which was quickly taken down.

Amazon US already allows customers to locate a wide range of tradesman, so extending this to the appointment of estate agents wouldn’t be a technical stretch. [via Estate Agent Today]
