Residential builders and developers are supporting a new online house and land matching service that is set to speed up the process of buying a new home.
Launched on Sunday, houseandland.com.au focuses on matching new home designs, land for sale and house and land packages, and was developed over the past three years by Adelaide-based real estate agents and digital media marketers Mark Shearer and Dean Kyros.
The website has been backed by Australand, Devine and AVJennings, and leading builders including BGC Residential, ABN Group, Metricon and Fairmont Homes.
Mr Shearer says the intuitive site focuses on matching new home designs, land for sale and house and land packages, and "delivers a new way in which consumers can search for house and land".
"The process of choosing and buying a new home has not kept pace with technology, so houseandland.com.au has been designed to deliver a step-change for new homebuyers," said Mr Shearer, adding that the site is immediately ready for mobile devices.
"At last we are able to leave behind the endless weekends of visiting display homes and then finding a block on which it will fit, and vice-versa. Buyers can now do all of their research on houseandland.com.au and only have to venture out to display villages and land estates after they have made their short list.
"Crucially, the website allows buyers to match homes from Australia's largest builders with land in leading estates, initially in South Australia and Western Australia and soon across the entire country.
