NZME Brings All Things Property under OneRoof
21 December 2017 – NZME is shaking up the property market with the launch of its new digital platform OneRoof, a single destination
providing data and information that buyers, sellers, renters and home owners need to make better property decisions.
Research shows that 57% of property buyers use up to four resources, and many websites in researching their property
purchase*. OneRoof will be the source for the listings, insight, data and content that savvy property buyers and renters
want to help them make an informed decision, on their next home. OneRoof will have a design which focuses on the factors
that really matter to prospective buyers and renters.
With the information they need at their fingertips, OneRoof users will be able to make better property decisions, faster
than ever, in one place.
Herald Homes and NZME’s regional property supplements are a trusted destination for anyone looking to buy, sell or rent
property. OneRoof builds upon NZME’s resources to provide New Zealanders with a more powerful and enjoyable way to find
their next home or make their best investment yet. With the backing of the NZME network, which has a national reach of
3.3 million Kiwis^, OneRoof offers real estate agents a real alternative to connect with potential buyers and renters
across the country.
The site will also specifically cater to renters. OneRoof will allow renters to apply for properties directly through
the platform, eliminating the need for filling out paper work with each individual application and making it easier than
ever to find the perfect place.
OneRoof will feature market-leading editorial content from the Real Estate team at the New Zealand Herald and around the
country, to inform and inspire readers with everything from market performance to first home buying tips.
Michael Boggs, Chief Executive Officer at NZME says, “With our experience, audience reach and recognised editorial
expertise in property, OneRoof is the natural next step for NZME to capitalise on the opportunity presented by the
digital property market. OneRoof will be a formidable competitor in New Zealand’s property market.”
Laura Maxwell, Chief Digital Officer at NZME, says OneRoof will streamline the property buying and renting process.
“OneRoof will be an all-inclusive hub, connecting prospective buyers and renters with information, agents, potential
properties and the tools they need to make the best property decision for them.”
“OneRoof has been designed with complete focus on the needs of the user. The decision to purchase a property is one of
the biggest financial and emotional decisions that we make in our lives. Buyers need to be able to understand how their
chosen property will work for them and their lifestyle, to understand whether this is the right place for them to buy.
We are prioritising the things that actually matter to people in making property decisions, which until now hasn’t been
easily accessible all in one place. OneRoof changes that.”
