Hello out there
Correct me if I am wrong but there appears to be only two significant residential realestate websites out there, realestate.com.au and domain.com.au.
After searching today i found out that there is also apparently only two significant commercial real estate websites out there, commercialrealestate.com.au and realcommercial.com.au
How is it possible for ALL those websites to be so bad?
Try any search and they will stuff it up, any search at all and it will be borked!
For example on the two residential sites I was looking today for houses with more than 5 bedrooms, more than 2 bathrooms, in innercity Brisbane, with the results sorted by price, lowest to highest.
That doesnt seem like such a hard task but why do i get 3 br houses, 3 br units, houses in kallangur, houses for 1 million before houses for $860k etc?
Surely such a simple search criteria could be met? I have nearly come to the opinion that it doesnt matter WHAT you choose as your search criteria as any of the paid adverts or priority listings will get into your search whether they are relevant or not!
And why are the search criteria so limited? If i want to look for 2 lot blocks, or 7 bathrooms specifically, why arent these available as options?
Lets not even mention viewing the pictures on realestate.com.au, something is completely borked there and I have to click like a Korean Stacraft Pro-Gamer to get to view the pictures...
And then today, my first look into Commercial property.
Links that dont work, pages that dont load, clunky search graphics, pages that resized twice after load.... and then the same old problems...
Since this is a new area for me in terms of investing I wanted to have a general look around so i choose some search criteria at random, I was searching for commercial property for less than $600k and in Brisbane.
Well i am not sure how property for 2.6mil fits into $600k works but if they want to sell it to me for that, I will take it... and why after choosing "industrial units" does my search show every thing from retail to office space? Why also did it show me businesses for sale?
As I said for the residential sites, what was the point of even offering a search field if you cant get your site to answer to it?
There is room for a LOT of improvement from the owners of those sites
/end rant hehe
