July product update

This month we have continued to make changes to better the user experience on our website. We’ve added Insurance Estimates for every residential home in NZ, updated our HomesEstimate graph to show 3 years of history,  and released a couple of other useful bits of functionality. Let’s dive in:


Insurance Estimates 

We’ve partnered with Initio to add yet another estimate to our home expenses section. Traditionally getting an instant estimate of how much it could cost to insure your home has been near impossible. Not anymore. Available on almost every residential property on homes.co.nz is an instant, free and customisable insurance estimate.

3-year HomesEstimate history 

The property market has been on fire for the past few years. If you bought a house 3 years ago you might be surprised to know what it was worth back then. You can now see what your HomesEstimate was up to 3-years ago by viewing 1, 2 or 3 years worth of history on the HomesEstimate Graph.

More Categories in Homes Inspo

Get inspiration for your next laundry or outdoor area renovation with our new Homes Inspiration categories. Browse through a selection of images fresh from properties that are for sale on homes.co.nz.

New agent profile layout

We want to make it easier to help you connect with and find the best Real Estate agents. Now you can easily browse through agent listings and sales with our upgrade to the agent profile layout. We have also improved the map to show all of the agents previous sales so you can see where they have sold properties around your neighbourhood.


Help us shape the future of homes.co.nz
