REIQ.com set to close

MergerThe REIQ Listings portal has been purchased by realestateVIEW.com.au.

As of the 30th of June all listings on REIQ will be transferred to realestateVIEW.com.au and on the 18th of September REIQ.com will cease to exist.

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) has partnered with national real estate portal realestateVIEW.com.au to transfer their listings portal REIQ.com.

The partnership gives REIQ members the full benefit of access to a national portal, with increased national reach for all property listings, creating opportunities to find buyers and renters interstate.

REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said this decision was a response to member feedback and was part of the REIQ charter to stick to its core business activities of serving members’ needs and acting in the best interests of the real estate profession.

“The existing REIQ.com portal did not achieve the outcomes we hoped and we also recognise that this is not our area of expertise.

“The smart move now is to partner with a strong national portal, realestateVIEW.com.au, and get the best possible outcome for our members,” Ms Mercorella said.

realestateVIEW.com.au is the third-largest real estate portal in Australia.

realestateVIEW.com.au General Manager Petra Sprekos said: “We are delighted to be working with the REIQ as their preferred real estate listings portal.

“With access to national content, hundreds of thousands of active property seekers, and affordable pricing, we see this important relationship as another step for realestateVIEW.com.au to be the industry’s chosen solution” she said.

This is good news for property buyers and renters around Australia, particularly in Queensland, with the portal now offering more than 300,000 property and business listings across its network.

Another example of a poorly executed industry backed website. Like every other real estate website they offer us listings for free, then try to charge us through the nose, THEN abandon us by selling up. Disgraceful.
