Squiiz listing website starts launch meetings today

Commencing in Brisbane, Squiiz is beginning its launch meetings, as they gear up for an expected mid-October launch.

The new listings website, advertised as being 100% industry-owned and operated, is undertaking 10 launch sessions across Australia, beginning in Brisbane.

Managing director of RE/MAX Australia and RE/MAX New Zealand, Michael Davoren, said that the purpose of Squiiz is to “protect the real estate industry and the data it collects”.

He noted that no one party dominates or controls interest, and also said that the Certified Practising Real Estate Agents group has decided to shelve their own property portal development to back the project.

Other information sessions are being held in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Launceston and Sydney.

The logo is of specific interest, it appears to be a combination of the elements of the realAs owl placemarker, and the common roof more familiar in Domain’s carefully-designed ‘M’.

But will it take off? When polled as to whether it could seriously challenge REA and Domain, Property Observer readers were split, with “no” just pushing past as of 10am, September 11.
