As 2013 comes to a close and industries begin slowing down for the year, Property24, South Africa’s number one Property Search Site, has been hard at work putting the finishing touches onto their revamped property website.
The goal was to maintain the wealth of valuable information on Property24.com, while focussing on an excellent user experience to make property hunting as simple and engaging as possible. With creative design, the result is a sleek, easy-to-navigate new-look Property24.com.
Being the leading property search portal in the country, Property24.com is continually developing and adding innovative tools and features to help South Africans search for, buy and own property with ease and confidence. And the website’s fresh new look offers everything that users have come to expect, but in an even more user-friendly environment.
“Our aim remains to offer the public and property professionals the best possible property search platform, and we are constantly working to improve the user experience”, explains JP Farinha, CEO of Property24. “We wanted consumers to feel at ease and at home on our website, and for it to be the place where they want to spend time browsing for property in a warm and comfortable online environment.”
The process of searching for and buying property is an emotional journey for each individual, and the revamped site offers a warmer experience for house hunters and homeowners throughout this process. Property24.com makes the property search simple with easily adjustable criteria to refine a search. Estate Agent and Attorney pages make finding the relevant professionals a breeze, and useful tools such as Affordability and Bond Calculators, Sales History, and Property News, Advice and Guides are available for the consumer to offer help and guidance at every stage of the journey.
In addition, Property24.com’s Agent Zone has an upgraded interface allowing for improved management of Agent and Agency profiles, and property listing information and stats.
The new website is supported by a redesign of the Property24 Apps for iPhone and Android smartphones, offering the busy, on-the-go property buyer the ability to search for property from anywhere by selecting a desired area or allowing the App to find properties for sale or rent nearby.
“We are pleased to have been able to listen to our users’ feedback and evolve to further meet their needs” Farinha explains, “and we are thrilled by the results that we have been able to achieve to offer a fresher, more inviting and visually appealing property search portal.”
