Admin October 27, 2022

With over 8,125 properties available both for sale and for rent on property.co.zw, searching around for properties has become more convenient.  A quick search on the platform will expose you to thousands of available property options and hundreds of reputable agents to deal with.

The volume of information available on property search portals can be overwhelming. This is why property.co.zw has gone to great lengths to create an easy-to-navigate site with clearly marked sections like: For Sale, For Rent, Projects, Requests, Location, Property Type, Pricing, etc

The following tips will help you to drill down and shortlist possible options with much ease;

Your goal with an online search should be to narrow down your search and shortlist the homes you would like to see in person. Then contact the estate agent or agents who are marketing those properties.

Once you have identified the potential house or stand you can proceed to engage the listing agent and get details for the subject property. Before engaging the estate agent it is important to verify with the Estate Agents Council of Zimbabwe whether such an agent is registered.

Before you start your online search, you should also know what price range you can afford. Set a maximum price or price range when carrying out the search, you can include those a little over your budget which can be negotiated on to fit on your budget.

Be sure not to stretch your budget to its limit. Searching for homes within your budget will allow you the flexibility to submit a higher offer on a home without placing yourself under undue financial strain.

Location is also another key factor when deciding what to buy, consider the property’s proximity to your place of work and the amenities that are important to you. Different neighbourhoods suit different kinds of lifestyles. Narrowing down your selection to a few suburbs will help filter your property search. 

Touring of homes or neighbourhoods have become the norm during the Covid-19 lockdown, adding a whole new dimension to searching for property online. Virtual tours give you a far better idea of the property before you decide to go and view it. 

We have integrated our platform with google map services to give you the convenience of narrowing down your options and getting the best options before you physically inspect them. 

On the map you can see the distance to your workplace and other essential services and also check restaurants, schools and shopping centres in the area in the comfort of your home or office.

We have made available the above services and integrations to make your property hunting and buying more exciting and convenient. As the environment keeps on changing we continue to innovate bringing you more convenience.
