Domain Group has announced the launch of a new search experience geared towards schooling that allows property-hunters to search by school name on the Domain marketplace and find properties in the district of the school of their choice.
Choosing a place to live based on schools is something that parents across the world can all relate to. Until now, this has been a thorn in parents' sides when looking for a home to match the needs of their children.
The new search experience offers school information within the property search and houses available in the same catchments all in one place. When parents search by school names, they will get access to up to date information such as school types, gender mixes, and properties for sale or rent within the school catchment.
Maty Paule, Chief Product Officer at Domain, commented: “Fifty percent of the parents we spoke to told us that nothing is more important than being able to send their kids to a certain school, or to be confident in the school catchment areas around their new property. Search by school name on Domain makes it as easy as possible for parents to find this information and keep it at the forefront of searches.
“Properties within highly-regarded school zones can boost house prices, and the information parents attain when they search by school names on Domain can add depth to their property decisions in the long term.
“Domain led the pack with adding school zones to property listings a few years ago, and the launch of search by school name only affirms our commitment to providing Australians with a holistic and hassle-free property search experience.”
Search by school name on Domain will enable parents in Australia to find properties to buy or rent based on their location by school districts and vice versa, access information about the schools across Australia, and view travel times from the property of choice to school by a number of variables.
