It’s been made possible through a new-look partnership with InspectRealEstate (IRE).

As of 7 December, Homely has revealed that agencies integrated with InspectRealEstate might have noticed “enhanced rental listings” through the platform, including new “book” and “apply” buttons.

The new features, which need no action from clients on their part, “enable renters to directly book inspections and apply through the 2Apply platform”.

According to Homely, the improvements “are integral components of a broader comprehensive strategy” between both tech players.

The listings portal noted InspectRealEstate as among the first in the market to integrate Homely’s Enquiries API, with that API reportedly ensuring mutual customers have a complete view of enquiries from Homely.

Matt McGown, the global chief product officer at Reapit, said the integration “is designed to enhance the experience for both agencies and tenants alike”.

“The ability to book and apply directly on Homely simplifies the process, making it more efficient and user-friendly,” he continued.

“We’re excited to see how it will streamline the real estate journey for all parties involved.”

The new partnership aims to provide an enhanced experience for all users, with Homely touting that landlords can expect quicker decision-making and reduced vacancy periods.

They also expect a surge in enquiries and applications for agents who do have their agencies integrated with IRE.

Luke Kenyon, the head of product at Homely, said the partnership with IRE “is designed to further streamline leasing operations and significantly boost efficiency for our customers”.

He flagged too that the rental audience has “a smoother rental experience and find the process more intuitive when booking or applying for their ideal property”.

Speaking on the partnership, co-CEO and co-founder at Homely, Adam Spencer, said their integration with IRE “reflects our commitment to staying ahead in the industry and ensuring a seamless experience for both our clients and their potential renters”.

We’re always looking for ways to enhance our platform and offer the best services to our clients,” he remarked.
