A major industry portal has furthered its capabilities to book and manage property inspections online.
Realestate.com.au has expanded its partnership with InspectRealEstate, and now offers an online inspection booking feature for properties listed for sale and for rent.
The website’s online booking system, which began with rental functionality, is now available for prospective buyers and investors, streamlining the house-hunting process.
Andrew Rechtman, executive general manager for realestate.com.au, said that the move was driven by customer and consumer demand for more efficient solutions to managing property appointments.
“Since integrating the feature into our rental listings last year, we’ve already seen more than 915,000 inspections booked by prospective tenants,” he said.
“It’s terrific to see that we can now roll out this functionality to make searching for property that little bit easier for buyers as well.”
Andrew Reece, CEO at InspectRealEstate, said he’s excited to be able to expand the company’s services with realestate.com.au.
“Since we launched our partnership last year, almost 50 per cent of our bookings have been made through the RegisterOnline feature integrated on realestate.com.au.
“It’s great to see that we’ve already helped thousands of tenants and property managers, and we’re confident that the feature will also be incredibly useful to buyers and selling agents,” he said.
The InspectRealEstate system allows property seekers to pre-register for inspections and be kept up to date via email or SMS if there are any changes to inspection times.
