Hawke's Bay Today
newspaper owner NZME has entered the regional property market with the launch of its online resource OneRoof.
OneRoof is a website which provides property data and information to buyers, sellers, renters and home owners to enable better property decisions.
Research shows 57 per cent of property buyers use up to four resources, and many websites, to research potential properties. OneRoof, which has been running in beta format since December, is designed to deliver all things property - under one roof.
The OneRoof website enhances New Zealand's latest real estate with the latest property and market insights to help make your property decisions easier. Local schools, crime stats, commute times, property values, market trends, mortgage calculators and an open homes planner are all included.
"We here at NZME Hawke's Bay are disrupting the property market with the launch of OneRoof," NZME Hawke's Bay general manager Glen Smith said.
"OneRoof has been built around a cornerstone of quality data and insights and leverages NZME's unrivalled editorial capability.
"OneRoof is an innovative online property platform powered by NZME. You can download the app or head online to www.oneroof.co.nz and give it a try. It's free, fast and well ahead of what house hunters and investment seekers are used to seeing.
"It's on a completely different level and we are super proud of it here at NZME. We are looking forward to working with our real estate clients to connect them with our OneRoof audiences."
Tremains Napier sales manager Stuart Christensen was impressed with what the website offered.
"The thing that stands out the most is the one-stop-shop idea. A consumer can go in there and be looking at a property but at the same time and on the same sight they can be finding out how far away is the local primary school, are they in the school zone, are there buses, how far it is to the nearest doctors. All that information you can get there and then, so from a resource point of view it's a pretty power website."
NZME also owns the NZ Herald, the Radio Network and GrabOne.
