bayut.com, a property portal covering the United Arab Emirates, has launched community section to encourage interaction between buyers and sellers.
The portal, which was officially launched last September, claims to have over 100,000 registered members. Its new community section allows members to post questions, start discussions, and upload blog posts.
bayut.com allows users to post basic property listings for free, while their "hot property" listings start at US$20. The portal is also selling banner advertising and displaying Google Ads on a number of its pages.
Along with property for sale and rent, bayut.com also has "wanted" property listings, an agent directory, a section for developments, and a service directory for each district.
