In a move set to change Africa’s property market forever, South Africa’s Private Property has partnered with ListGlobally to showcase South African property to the world and also present South African buyers with the opportunity to peruse international property listings.
“The deal provides a portfolio of international property for our browsers to look at while our advertisers can place property on some of the world leading portals in various countries,” Justin Clarke CEO Private Property told TechMoran.
With over 60 million buyers and investors via a network of leading property portals around the world and distributing to a network of over 50 portals in Asia, Europe, and North and South America, ListGlobally is the perfect partner for Privateproperty.co.za, South Africa’s leading property portal with over a million unique visitors per month, plus 700 000 for web alone.
Private Property CEO Justin Clarke says that the partnership with ListGlobally is a logical step for Private Property growth. Established in 1998 for the “for sale by owner” market, the portal now receives listings from South Africa and Namibia, and hosts an international property section.
“The time has never been better for us to look further than sub-Saharan Africa,” said Clarke. “With the exchange rate being favourable for foreign buyers, we are seeing more international investment into the South African property market. Bearing this in mind, it makes perfect sense for us to enable our sellers to list on a global platform.”
Also elated witht he deal, Chris Vulovic, CEO of ListGlobally, said: “As South Africa’s leading portal, Private Property is the perfect addition to the ListGlobally network. The leadership team has the vision to embrace the global trends in both marketing South African properties to overseas buyers, and extend its search territory to include international properties. Today’s sellers expect their homes to be viewed by a global audience and the partner estate agents will be able to provide just that, thanks to the ListGlobally network.”
