Domain launches school-based search for property-hunting parents
Staff reporterDecember 7, 2020

Domain Group has launched a new school-based search experience allowing property-searching parents to search by school name.

It is aimed at parents with specific schools or school catchments in mind to access school information in their property search.

When parents search by school names, they will get access to up to date information such as school types, gender mixes, and properties for sale or rent within the school catchment. 

Maty Paule, Chief Product Officer at Domain, commented that 50% of the parents told us that nothing was "more important than being able to send their kids to a certain school, or to be confident in the school catchment areas around their new property".

"Properties within highly-regarded school zones can boost house prices, and the information parents attain when they search by school names on Domain can add depth to their property decisions in the long term," he said.

Search by school name on Domain will enable parents in Australia to:

  • Find properties to buy or rent that meet specific criteria and are located within desired school catchments. 

  • Immediately see which school catchment their property falls in, along with a list of nearby government and non-government schools. 

  • Access important information for schools across Australia, including location and catchment maps, school types, gender mixes and year ranges. 

  • View travel times from a property to a school by car, public transport and walking during the busy morning drop-off.
