Australia’s largest property portal has announced it will integrate its rental listings with a prominent online booking system.
Realestate.com.au will implement InspectRealEstate’s (IRE) RegisterOnline property inspection booking system on rental property listings by property managers who use IRE.
This will allow prospective tenants to easily register for an inspection and be kept updated via email or SMS of changes to inspection times. The functionality will be rolled out in late 2015.
REA Group chief digital officer Henry Ruiz said the initiative will make property simple, efficient and stress-free for property managers and potential tenants.
“As IRE’s RegisterOnline also integrates with 1Form, our online rental application site, prospective tenants looking for property on realestate.com.au will be able to browse, book an inspection and apply for a rental property in a few easy steps,” Mr Ruiz said.
Place Real Estate director Paul Curtain said his company has found RegisterOnline’s functionality very useful.
“We’re really pleased that realestate.com.au and IRE are working together as it will mean our property managers will be able to keep in touch with a broader rental audience than ever before and it will be easier for prospective tenants to book into our inspections,” Mr Curtain said.
