REA Group has announced the launch of Spacely, a new listings site that will make it easier for Australians to find short-term commercial rentals and co-working spaces that meet their needs.
If you have a short-term commercial space to rent out, then Spacely will be beneficial – the site lists co-working, office, creative, retail, event and meeting room spaces.
This new initiative from REA is set to evolve over the coming months, with multiple updates and improvements expected as more short-term commercial listings surface on the site.
There are also a range of serviced office listings from Regus, Servcorp and OfficeHub, as well as co-working spaces from Inspire9 and The Workery.
REA’s diversification into commercial short-term listings signifies new territory for the global real estate marketplace.
“The launch of Spacely sees us enter a new market and allows us to bring something to Australians that we know they’ve been searching for,” said Tracey Fellows, REA Group CEO.
“With almost 600,000 Australian businesses renting a short-term commercial space last year alone, there is a clear opportunity to make it easier for Australians to find the solution that’s right for them,” Ms Fellows said.
Joseph Lyons, REA Group Executive General Manager – Spacely, commented: “The nature of work is changing and there are a growing number of short-term commercial spaces for rent or lease in Australia.
The current difficulty is they are spread across multiple websites depending on location and type of space.
“Spacely fills a gap in the market that currently exists and makes it easier for Australian businesses to find the space that’s right for them, in the one place,” Mr Lyons said.
