The website will now include a property news section comprised of content from Australia's metro, regional and community publications. News Corp journalists will work with the realestate.com.au team to produce national, state and local property market news on a daily basis.
Tracey Fellow, CEO of the REA Group, said the partnership between News Corp and realestate.com.au means more local property news for consumers.
"We know that Australians are property obsessed and that real estate is not a national experience, it's local," Fellow said. "With more local news content than ever before, people will be able to freely access the latest property news that matters most to them.
"This makes realestate.com.au not only the best source of property advertising, but the place where you can discover anything to do with property, be that property news, and information, market insights or spending hours engaging with property entertainment."
News Corp Australasia's executive chairman Michael Miller said:
"This deal combines the strengths of both companies and ensures our audiences can access the largest, single source of property and real estate information available online in Australia. This is equally beneficial for advertisers wanting to appeal to this audience and ensures we are able to deliver unique and impactful solutions for our clients in this space."
