Flat-fee real estate agency Purplebricks shuttering U.S. business

After building a successful business in the United Kingdom with its flat-fee real estate model, Purplebricks set its sights on finding similar success in the United States, but now, less than two years later, Purplebricks’ U.S. dream is dead. Purplebricks announced Monday that it is shuttering its U.S. business, and will instead focus on growing its business in the U.K. and Canada.
