Review of NZ Top 10 Real Estate Website

Open2View is an online real estate finding service for New Zealand. This website provides current real estate listings throughout the country, from Auckland to Dunedin and every community in between. When it comes to finding investment property, many turn to online listings to get a feel for pricing and see the types of property that are available. This article will provide a review of Open2View. At the end of the article, we will let you know about a company that can show you how to use online real estate listings to your benefit.

The first feature we like about Open2View is their easy search features. Users can plug in the suburb they are interested in and find all the properties in that area. There is also an option to search by ID#, so if you find a property you like, you can record the ID# and easily go back to it later. The website also offers a map that is sectioned into defined areas, which allows you to search for properties in a broader region. The wide range of search features allows you to customize your search to specific areas of interest.

When you click on a particular property at Open2View, you receive ample information about the building, lot and nearby amenities. Prospective customers can get all the basic statistics about the home, including square footage, lot size and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Other information is dependent on what the real estate agent adds, but most descriptions offer a good idea of what the property looks and feels like to potential owners. Some even include a Google map so you can see precisely where the property is located.

Whether you are a buyer looking for a property to live in or invest in, you will want to know all about the neighborhood and the school system, since this information directly affects property values, whether you are in Wellington or Christchurch. There are links on the side of webpage, so customers can get additional information about the property at no charge. Be careful when navigating this sidebar, however, since some of the links will charge you for the information you are looking for. You are better off contacting the real estate agent directly for additional information.

The best feature of Open2View is the beautiful photos that accompany each property. Many listings include multiple photos so you can get a very good idea of what the property looks like. Most include photos of the interior, exterior and the views the property provides. This is especially important in an area like New Zealand, where many buyers are shopping with breathtaking views in mind. Some even include the floorplan so you can picture how all the photos fit together.


While Open2View is an excellent way to search out properties in New Zealand, to find the right investment property for your needs, it is a good idea to work with a property finder buyers agents as well. This professional is well versed in the investment market and can advise you on the best way to formulate an investment strategy and then find the properties that will help you meet your goals.
