- Industry-first collaboration gives access to more than 4.5 million listings from 72 countries
National, June , 2017: Elara Technologies Pte Ltd., owner of Housing.com, PropTiger.com, and Makaan.com, has joined REA Group’s Global Property Network, delivering the world’s largest source of global property listings.
As an industry first in India, this collaboration will bring together Elara Technologies’ group companies from India and REA Group owned and partner sites across China, USA, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Macau, including leading portals such as realtor.com, realestate.com.au and iproperty.com.my.
From today, consumers who are looking for inspiration, investment destinations, moving for work or education, wanting to start a portfolio or simply thinking about buying a property, can explore the world of property like never before. They will now have access to more than 4.5 million listings from 72 countries. The listings on the global property network will be exposed to more than 450,000 visits and 4.6 million page views globally each month.
Listings on this global property network will connect sellers with buyers across borders, and property seekers will be able to view global listings translated in their respective local currency and languages. Indian home buyers looking for property abroad will now have access to a global database of properties via trusted market-leading local brands. Similarly, Indian developers will now have a platform to get their listings in front a global audience.
Commenting on the development, Dhruv Agarwala, CEO, Housing.com, PropTiger.com, and Makaan.com, said, “In the last few years, there has been a growing appetite for overseas property investment into the Asian market including India. At the same time, Indians now aspire to own property in international locations for work or leisure. We are confident that this collaboration will open a world of possibilities and benefit end consumers and business partners alike.”
Henry Ruiz, CEO – Asia, REA Group said, “People love looking at property so we wanted to provide them with an opportunity to explore listings outside of their home country, but from a platform they already know and trust. Having a network of property portals come together on the one platform allows property seekers to access a large source of listings from around the world, whether that’s an apartment in New York, a beach house in Australia, or now an apartment in Delhi.”
