domain.com.au, Australia’s number two property portal, is targeting first home buyers with the release of a new how-to guide sponsored by Aussie Home Loans.
An email to registered home hunters outlines the first home buyers guide, which gives advice on topics such as deposits, loan types, making offers and questions to ask about a property.
The guide also contains tools and calculators including a “jargon buster” and “one minute mortgage explorer”.
2009 has been a year of upgrades for domain.com.au, the latest being the release of an inspection planner and before that the RADAR search tool, which finds properties matching questionnaire criteria.
The stream of upgrades has been matched by Australia’s leading portal, realestate.com.au, which has just added suburb data and a review website to its offerings and is currently looking to gain visitors through a Facebook based marketing campaign.
