Jump Group styles itself a property retailer, saying it is not bound by the estate agents’ code of conduct. This allows it to offer unusual packages. Its Jumpstart scheme advances buyers the deposit and arranges a 95% mortgage. The company was founded by Jason Butler in 1995, and in November 2002 it raised £1.5m from the venture-capital firm BP Marsh. It now has 30 branches in Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. Sales have risen 131% a year from an annualised £3.9m in 2000 to £47.7m in 2003.
