Commercial website publisher eCom Advertising has launched a new property website to tackle what it describes as the "daunting" task of finding a place to live in Ethiopia's major cities.
liveinethopia.com is aimed at both Ethiopian nationals and foreign residents, covering properties for sale and rent. The new website allows users to search for everything from apartments to "very exotic" properties, to specify their move in date, and to filter results to show only those listings with photos and videos.
A statement from eCom Advertising explains liveinethiopia.com was developed in collaboration with local realtors, and the website says these realtors will be available to show properties. At the moment, liveinethiopia.com does not outline its advertising model or provide information on how agents can list their properties.
liveinethiopia.com's listings are currently limited to the capital Addis Ababa, but eCom Advertising promises more cities will be added soon.
