IOLProperty is a true example of necessity being the mother of invention.
In the autumn of 2005 a house hunter was looking on the internet for a dream home for his family...and becoming increasingly frustrated. There were many sites that claimed to be the biggest or the best but none of them was close to being either definitive or showing what was actually available out there. The house hunter thought to himself, What I need is a "Property Search Engine" - something that scans South Africa's estate agent sites every night and stores all the properties it finds in a single place where everyone can see them. And with that, South Africa's and possibly the world's first property search engine, www.g.co.za, the forerunner to IOLProperty, was created.
A few years later an alliance with Independent newspapers was forged. Print listings were added and the site was redeveloped giving birth to IOLProperty.
Today we host hundreds of thousands of visitors each month looking for their own dream homes. We hope IOLProperty helps you to find yours.
Happy house hunting!
