Change the way you search for property

MyProperty has launched a whole new way of searching for property on the site.

Property searches are generally conducted in the same old fashioned way: type in a suburb or choose an area from a drop-down and start your search.

Not anymore! Introducing a completely new innovative way of finding property on the Internet: search by Point of Interest (POI).

How does it work?

Simply type in the POI name in the search box. Try entering ‘Gautrain’ to search on Gautrain train stations or ‘university’ to bring up all the major universities in South Africa. We’ve also started loading shopping malls and schools and will continue to expand the list of available points.

Select a point and enter further filter criteria including the radius you want to search around the point, price range etc. Click search and properties within a radius around the POI you’ve selected are displayed on a map with search results. All properties have numbered markers and even have a ‘jumping’ marker to highlight them on the map when you hover your mouse on a property in the search results.

Driving time & distance – a first for a property portal

We are also proud to be the first South African property portal (and probably first in the world), to show driving distance and time from the property to the POI. This is indicated on the property search results and can even be sorted by shortest driving time or distance.

Entegral will rapidly expand the POI list of searchable points offered. The unique and industry first POI search with driving time & distance will also be made available to customers on request. It is ideally suited for real estate agencies who geo-code there properties as it uses the longitude and latitude points between properties and POI points to do the calculations and mapping.

Things you should consider before upgrading to a new home
23 Apr 2018
The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher. Sometimes, it’s because we’ve outgrown our previous dream home, or because we want to be in a better neighbourhood that’s closer to work or to schools. Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
