Broker's site wins top accolade

by AB12 Jun 2013

Australian real estate social networking site, Housenet.com.au, has been named one of Australia’s 100 most innovative products or services in Anthill Magazine’s SMART 100 Index.

Housenet CEO, Darren Moffatt, says he’s ‘thrilled’ with the accolade.

“We’ve worked super hard to build an innovation that helps people get better results with property, so it’s great to receive this recognition.”

Moffatt says Housenet aims to be the ‘base station’ site for homeowners, investors, residents and first home buyers.

“We think our custom technology fills the gap that exists in your digital world between traditional real estate portals, property forums and social media. People use Facebook for friends and Linked In is for your career, but what about your home? What site is the base for your property and online relationships with the locals where you live or invest? Housenet is that site.”

He says Housenet members can connect with other residents and ‘property people’ in their suburb, access live market data to find real estate bargains across Australia and manage home improvement projects online using an online renovation tool.

“Membership is growing fast and I’m sure this award will help even more, which is great.”
