Two of the world’s largest online real estate portal owners, one of them Australian, have joined forces to deliver the world’s largest source of international property listings.
India’s Elara Technologies – which owns Housing.com, PropTiger.com and Makaan.com – has joined REA Group’s Global Property Network.
As an industry first in India, the collaboration will bring together Elara Technologies’ group companies from India and REA Group partner sites across Australia, the US, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Macau. These include leading portals such as realtor.com, realestate.com.au and iproperty.com.my.
REA Group’s CEO – Asia Henry Ruiz said the strategy behind the initiative is to cater for global demand.
“People love looking at property so we wanted to provide them with an opportunity to explore listings outside of their home country, but from a platform they already know and trust,” Mr Ruiz said.
“Having a network of property portals come together on the one platform allows property seekers to access a large source of listings from around the world, whether that’s an apartment in New York, a beach house in Australia or now an apartment in Delhi.”
Mr Ruiz said consumers will have access to more than four and a half million listings from 72 countries.
“Consumers looking for inspiration, investment destinations, moving for work or education. or wanting to start a portfolio can explore the world of property like never before,” he said.
“The listings on the global property network will be exposed to more than 450,000 visits and 4.6 million page views globally each month.”
