The managing director of NewsLifeMedia, Nicole Sheffield, today announced the launch of a brand new national address for confident property decisions, news.com.au/realestate.
News.com.au/realestate brings together News Ltd’s best property journalism, exclusive tools that put professional data in the hands of users, Australia’s best property listings and a team of independent property and real estate experts offering objective, useful advice to empower users to make smart property decisions with confidence.
“news.com.au is one of this country’s leading news and information websites and we’re thrilled to add this content rich new real estate vertical to the site. Australians love all things property and whether you are buying, selling, renting or investing, news.com.au/realestate will be the one stop shop for real estate information, advice and listings across the country,” said Ms Sheffield.
News.com.au/realestate is powered by content from News Ltd’s dedicated network of property and real estate editors covering the latest news in property from a local to a national level. Where’s hot, where’s not and everything in between as well as custom built digital coverage and everything you need to know about buying, selling, renting or investing.
“The new real estate content is the culmination of two years of investment in property journalism by News Ltd with the relaunch of real estate sections across the country, said Kylie Davis, national real estate editor, News Ltd. “Real estate markets go up, they go down or they go sideways and in every market our readers need information that will help them make a good decision and feel confident that it is right for them. Our coverage seeks to fill the gap of independent information that readers can draw upon when making one of the biggest - and most emotional - decisions of their lives.”
News.com.au/realestate launches with The Investment Finder – a powerful tool that puts professional property data in the hands of users. The Investment Finder allows users to enter the amount they have to invest in property and their desired yield. The tool then delivers all suburbs which match the criteria.
Users can then filter suburbs by location and property type, view all performance data (from median price, median rent, average vendor discount to days on market as well as trending growth and ratings on growth), view detailed information about the suburb and see properties for sale and recently sold properties in that suburb. Users can also compare the best mortgages (fixed, variable and split) from all Australian financial institutions.
Real estate consumer champion and award-winning presenter of Selling Houses Australia Andrew Winter heads the roster of experts on the site. Andrew is joined by outdoor expert Charlie Albone, interiors queen Juliet Love and News Ltd’s national personal finance editor, Anthony Keane.
News.com.au/realestate features property listings from realestate.com.au which are localised by IP address. If a user is viewing the site from Geelong, they’ll see properties for sale in Geelong and if they’re in Cairns, they’ll see properties from Cairns.
