June 2024

We’ve been quiet for a few months… that’s because we’ve been working on a huge update that we’re now ready to roll out!

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of changes:


  • We’ve rebuilt our data model from the ground up to include retired properties and include rental units, community and company title properties.
  • (Coming very soon) We’ve updated our ownership data in QLD and WA to include current owners from property transfers that aren’t captured in sales.
  • We’ve changed our zoning in South Australia at the property level to better align with the current state zoning model.

  • You can now save search results to lists and come back to these at any time
  • You can now view your currently selected properties in the “Selected Results” side panel and use this as a launchpad to create reports, lists or manage your selection across multiple searches.
