Property portal myroof.co.za was launched in October 2008 to list private property for sale and rent in South Africa. The website charges private sellers a one off listing fee that can be paid once their property has been sold.
Recently, myroof.co.za added laser drawn floor plans to enhance its listings, claiming to be the first South African property website to do so. In a press release, marketing director Gert van der Walt explained: “When buyers go online to look for property, they need more than just pictures to find what they want. A floor plan brings the pictures together, and tells a lot more about the property at a single glance.”
A recent post on the myrof.co.za blog outlines the harsh economic conditions currently influencing South African real estate, stating that the number of employed agents has more than halved, leaving large agencies to compete for a share of the market.
