Maybe they should be so lucky….but hey you know what…….here in NZ we already are.
Coming from the “lucky country” tonight, comes this Real Estate Industry news, that various industry forces across the ditch have (and not before time I might suggest) realized the importance that a consensus of news/data/other stuff, forwarded regularly from an amalgamated industry recognised body, could in fact….engender and further, grow credibility.
Greg Vincent, AREC 2010 visitors may recognise the name, is breaking the news tonight that…….no no not the State of Origin results……he is saying that there is about to be some equilibrium soon return to the Australian Real Estate industry.
He’s telling readers of his regular newsletters in his latest post that after talking with Enzo Raimondo, CEO of REIV and Petra Sprekos – GM of realestateview.com.au, that the Ozzie RE industry is pounced to finally roll-out a national industry based portal……….similar to ……..hmmmm……NZ?
Hmmm ….we’ll have to wait til 2/06/2010 at the big Sydney Opera House event for the official announcement……but from the way Greg tells it……and frankly he should know……it does sounds promising.
As Greg reports….WA and VIC seemed to be amongst those that really have their act together. And the other Australian states……
For today lets pretend I’m a reporter here. Best case scenario I can paint is like this.………….here in NZ in 2010 we have two major & dominant Real Estate portals……
Did you notice something there? That the NZ Real Estate Industries portal is the logical first search choice for Kiwi property buyers.
Where do I go to make a general search when I want to buy a property in NZ. Obviously first choice is www.realestate.co.nz. In Australia its realestate.com.au or domain, both private players.
Of course you can go to any other place to search you want, because like everywhere on the net no one can dictate where you point your mouse & click, but the Real Estate industry of New Zealand is committed to provide a site with the amalgamated largest collection of properties in NZ, so why wouldn’t you go here first? So therefore with a combined effort across the ditch – why wouldn’t any Ozzie go to their national portal 1st also?
