Homes247.com.au is a new national real estate portal which was officially launched in Canberra in September 2010. They currently offer free real estate listings to all real estate agencies, resort owners and property developers with funding coming from other advertising and affiliate programs listed elsewhere across the site.

Homes247 has catered for a wide selection of property listings, which include;

  • Residential Sales and Leasing
  • Commercial Sales and Leasing
  • Short Stay, Holiday Accommodation
  • Bed and Breakfasts
  • Specific Coastal Region Properties and
  • Aged Care Facilities

According to Managing Director Michael McGrath:

To date Homes247 receives between 1500-3000 unique visitors to its landing page every day, and lists thousands of properties Australia wide.

Aside from the standard list of features normally found on most real estate websites, Homes247 provides the following additional features;

  • free live data Property Reports for most For Sale properties
  • easy to access sales history data
  • the ability to submit an expression of interest online, and
  • new listings by date in search results

Michael says:

In the next 12 months the team at Homes247 hope to release a comprehensive range of additional services to its real estate clients. Providing them with instant single-click results for real estate data;

– comprehensive sales figures for the agency in any given suburb or region on its’ database
– agency sales figures such as average sales amount, and average marketing time-frames and lots more.
This data could be invaluable to the client.

For such a new portal, Homes247 are showing some great innovation and we look forward to their future updates. With no cost to market your properties on Homes247 there shouldn’t be any reason why your agency does not sign up and support them today.

    3000 visits a day, that’s good.

    Can someone show me a Google search where they appear in the results ?

    yep- query the same.
    But the joke of the day is article on propertyportalwatch saying that Domain got 266m page views last month. This equates to around 88 page views per visitor per day- they wish.

    So stats stats and damn lies.

    “266m” – is that 266 thousand?? I’d normally take “m” to mean million….just thought I’d try and clarify

    It’s 266 Million Stewart. It might be a misprint on the part of the reporter. 26.6million would be closer to the mark I would guess.

    Vic they are probably including image hits in that figure.

    Hmm that still doesn’t quite tally up. Perhaps they are also including ad hits as well? That would get those kinds of numbers. 😛

    Still Nick, seems misleading, calling it page views, then.
