7 top tips to find your perfect property, under one roof

As the #1 property portal in New Zealand, realestate.co.nz has all the tools you need for property, under one roof. Here are our top 7 features to help you find your perfect property.

1. Natural language search

Using our natural language search bar, you can search easily for what you want. Just like a Google search, you can type exactly what you’re looking for. For example, a three-bedroom house in Christchurch, under 500,000. Select a category, type in your search and you’re ready to go.
