US real estate search engine trulia.com is moving into international real estate search through a new partnership with ListGlobally.
ListGlobally was created by propertyportalwatch.com publisher Classified Ad Ventures to allow agents and developers to market their listings to buyers around the world through a network of leading property portals. It involves no contracts or set-up fees, charging a flat fee for for each listing which is active for 90 days.
At the moment, the ListGlobally network includes rightmove.co.uk (UK), the iProperty.com network of portals (Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong), propertyfinder.ae (UAE), 99acres.com (India), immobilienscout24.de (Germany), privateproperty.co.za (South Africa), spiti24.gr (Greece), and domavin.com (Russia) amongst others.
trulia.com says it will be ListGlobally’s exclusive partner in the US and plans to launch the international search feature in the first half of 2011 to address increased consumer interest in the global property market.
“We live in a global marketplace and more and more Americans are expanding their home search beyond US borders,” says Pete Flint, CEO and co-founder of trulia.com. “Our users are moving overseas for jobs or they may be interested in second homes and places to retire. We are excited to launch global search capabilities because it is important for us to establish trulia.com as the one-stop shop for the real estate needs of all of our users.”
Portals soon to be added to the ListGlobally network include seloger.com (France), idealista.com (Spain), immobiliare.it (Italy), oferty.net (Poland) and homein.com (Global). The company says it plans to rapidly expand its listings throughout the year.
