Homely.com.au launches new feature

05 May 2016 James Mitchell

Real estate portal Homely has launched a new feature that offers users an easier, faster and better way to set up alerts for new property listings.

Free-to-list real estate portal Homely.com.au has introduced a new Visual Alerts system that ensures users never miss out on new property listings or lose track of previously viewed properties.

The new feature allows alerts to be created by clicking on the ‘Alerts’ bell icon at the top right of any Homely page or via the ‘Create Alert’ button on the listings results page.

According to the group, Visual Alerts allows an unrivalled level of customisation, incorporating a wide range of different filters to choose from (price range, property type, car spaces etc.). These filters ensure that users are only alerted for listings that meet their specific search requirements.


“Unlike other property portals, our Visual Alerts system provides users with their own alerts archive where they can see exactly what’s new and what they’ve already viewed,” Homely co-CEO and head of product Adam Spencer said.

“We’ve also got a cool new feature called ‘All alerts’, which summarises all alerts into an all-inclusive group, saving users time in their search,” he said

The new alerts functionality allows users to manage, edit and view all of their alerts from one central location. The group said that, importantly, alerts are filtered from newest to oldest, so users aren’t overwhelmed with a plethora of ‘featured results’.
