Real estate and property website Homehound which was originally established back in 2007 and has grown to be one of the largest real estate portals in Australia, has recently been relaunched. The property portal boasts a new look and feel, and is set to deliver a rich user experience for home buyers and renters, with new simpler and more user-friendly functionality.
Early features of the revamp include:
“Real estate is and always has been an integral part of our family business, so nothing pleases me more than being able to contribute to the evolution of this age old industry” said Michael Hannan, Chairman of IPMG, Homehound’s parent company. “Our vision is to create the most innovative and trusted real estate website in Australia, and I feel that we are well on the way to achieving this goal.”
The company promises to remain committed to providing the industry with a free listing alternative, and is calling for all agents, offices and agency groups to make use of the service in order to combat competitors who are continually raising their prices.
Homehound’s transformation coincides with two new appointments for the company, explains James Hannan, Chief Operating Officer – Digital at IPMG; “In order to drive growth, innovation and disrupt the market we have made two key appointments within Homehound. Boris Gefter has been appointed General Manager while Peter Turville-Ince has been appointed Commercial Director.”
