Nationwide closes home repair service Anew


Nationwide, a British mutual financial institution, has reportedly closed its virtual home repair system Anew.

The firm has absorbed Anew into a new digital home guidance platform by Nationwide the Home Journey Guide, according to a report from Coverager.

Anew was created in 2020 and was launched the following year. It offered various home support services, with it initially offering assessment calls with experts for $20. These calls were eventually offered for free.

These assessment calls would provide the person with recommended next steps and an estimated price range for the work, if needed. The caller would also be supplied with a list of local repair companies that could do the work.

Coverager claims the service supported over 600 homeowners.

Nationwide new Home Journey Guide provides customers with personalised home projects, expert repair advice and prioritised planning. The user can upload their home inspection report to receive support on next steps.

This new service also claims to help homeowners better visualise the work that needs to be done, but also how to improve the house to make it a better investment.

Nationwide is a financial institution that offers a range of services including, insurance, mortgages, current accounts, savings and ISAs, investments, loans, credit cards and more.

Earlier in the month, Nationwide launched a partnership with North American pet-adoption website Adopt a Pet to provide pet protection and education to pet parents.
