SizzlingProperties, previously British Virgin Island-based, has moved its headquarters to Mauritius. The company's Managing Director, Vaneesha Hurrychurn said that the decision to relocate was because the real estate market in Mauritius is attractive, and it has been extremely successful in recent years.
The relocation of the company to Mauritius coincided with the official launch of its new portal SizzlingProperties.com earlier this month at the Hennessy Park Hotel, in Ebene.
“The old platform SizzlingProperties.mu was a huge success, and this is one of the reasons I opted for an interactive and innovative platform. SizzlingProperties.com is a new web portal that better meets the expectations of visitors, hailing from 180 different countries,” added Vaneesha Hurrychurn.
Starting April 15, SizzlingProperties.mu has given way to the new website, which is also accessible from a mobile phone or a touch pad.
The new website is visited by local potential property buyers/investors as well as individuals seeking local properties from around the globe, including the United Kingdom, France and the United States, among others.
The site allows users to manage their accounts independently; they can respond to messages, add contacts, post or remove their ads.
This platform is a boon for new estate agents because they can build a list of contacts and increase their visibility on the web. This new web portal is also suitable for foreigners who wish to spend their holidays in Mauritius for a short duration or otherwise, as they can choose between villas, guesthouses or apartments.
For his part, Laval Savreemootoo, the president of the Estate Agents Association, welcomed the launch of SizzlingProperties.com.
“As real estate agents, it is imperative that we are always listening to our customers to understand their needs and best respond to them. It is from this perspective that we join Sizzlingproperties to launch a website dedicated to real estate, because sales are increasingly being made online,” he noted.
Moreover, SizzlingProperties will launch from next month onwards a cumulative point system to allow real estate agents earn points to purchase advertising space on the site. Once a certain number of points have been accumulated, agencies can exchange them against advertising solutions or discount.
