Welcome to our new site - https://openhome.realestate.co.nz

Our goal at realesate.co.nz is to provide you the shortest path to your perfect property, so we are launching a brand-new site. Have a play around and share your feedback – we’d love to hear what you think. You’ll find the ‘feedback’ button at the very top of the page.

Our new header

The realestate.co.nz logo in the right-hand corner will take you back to the home page no matter where you are on the site.

Next, you will see our key property categories; Residential, Commercial, Rural and Business. We have created a new section for those who are after a bit of land – our Lifestyle category. This can be found under both the Residential and Rural tabs. You can also navigate to each category from the dropdown menu to the left of the search bar.

Search Bar

A great new feature is being able to search across more than one category using the ‘Advanced’ search option below the search bar. We now show you everything that’s for sale or rent in any of the categories you choose. This is handy when you have just sold your house and need to look for properties to buy or rent in the suburb you’re moving to. Or you may be looking to invest and want to explore both residential and commercial property options. These searches can all be done from our advanced search.

If you’re hunting for a real estate agency office, use the ‘Offices’ tab to search for one in your area.

Looking for a local real estate agent? You can find one using the ‘Agents’ tab.

Our ‘Blog’ is where you’ll find the latest property news, great home inspiration if you have found your perfect property and handy tips and guides if you’re still searching for your dream home. 

Found your perfect property and now need to move? Our ‘Move’ team will help coordinate the shift of all your service providers in one easy phone call.

Signing up to ‘My property’ gives you the ability to save properties, receive email alerts when new properties matching your search criteria come onto the market and view property statistics.

A new way to search

Forget ticking boxes, our new search functionality means you can simply type what it is you’re looking for and we’ll find it. For example, a ‘3-bedroom house for sale in Christchurch’, or a ‘home under $500,000 in the Bay of Plenty’. 

Our smarter search will find the best match, making it easier and faster for potential buyers, renters and investors to find what they’re looking for.

Prefer the way you used to search? Click the ‘Advanced’ link at the bottom of the search box to reveal the previous search functions. If you have started searching using the letterbox search, you may find some of the boxes already filled out for you. You’ll also see that you can search across more than one category using the ‘Advanced’ search function as mentioned above.
