Recent housing statistics reveal that the number of home building applications (as well as the permits approved in Australia) is enjoying a record high. The figure was double the expectations of the experts, who believe that these developments are providing strong proof of the continuous recovery of the nation’s property market. Combined with concerted efforts for better, more relevant housing programmes, bank regulations and fiscal policies, it is believed that the momentum gained by the property market can pose a positive impact not just on the real estate industry, but also on the nation’s economic standing.

The Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) says this is the perfect time for taking a more serious look at real estate investment once again. An upbeat, flourishing market will always offer profitable opportunities for property vendors and buyers – especially the ones who are equipped with accurate, up-to-date knowledge to back up their decisions. Recently, they demonstrated the use of their no-cost online services that are designed to bring fast, efficient and reliable information to anyone interested to invest in Australian housing, which Wall Street Journal called in September the “bright spot in weak economy.” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324886704579050252544608892.html

One of the signature tools offered at the REIWA website is the Property Alerts, Lists and Saved Searches. This program enables regular users of the REIWA Property Finder to have quicker, more exact results the moment they log onto the website. All they have to do is to save their favourite searches or search criteria of their interest. The search terms can be as accurate as they want, to indicate house features and details such as the location, the number of bedrooms and bath, and the price range.

Another feature of the tool provides users the option of receiving Property Alerts based on the search preferences they have saved or modified. The alerts are sent through emails that contain listings that match the search preferences of the user and are entered in the extensive REIWA database. Email alerts are sent every night, every time there is a listing that matches the saved searches. The body of the email will look like a typical REIWA search results page, complete with property photos and images, for members who opted for HTML emails. Members can also choose the simpler text-only email version.

Signing up is fast, simple and secure. An interested property investor will be asked to fill an online form with the required information including their full name and email address. After submitting the form, they will receive a confirmation email which contains the link to activate their account. REIWA guarantees personal details will never be shared with a third party or distributed without the consent of the member.

According to REIWA President David Airey, these no-cost tools “bring members the best opportunities that put them in the best position as an investor.” By signing up for the Property Alerts, Lists and Saved Searches, property investors tag properties to their own private lists and save their favourite finds, allowing them to experience efficient, organised and timely property information management.

Airey adds: “As with any important decision, access to the right information when investing in property helps you set realistic expectations, gain clarity in complex situations, and proceed with smart decisions for best results. Receiving immediate notifications and daily alerts not only helps you save time – most importantly, it leads you to make more urgent, relevant decisions today that will have a remarkable impact in the future.”
