Dear Friends of StreetAdvisor,

Almost 7 years ago, we set out with an ambitious goal to help people find the very best places to live around Australia. In that time you have shared over 500,000 ratings and reviews of your favourite streets and suburbs nationwide. Best of all, over 10 million people have joined the conversation on StreetAdvisor, something we are extremely proud of.

Today StreetAdvisor Australia undergoes a renovation as we make the next exciting leap in helping you find the perfect place to live…the home. Introducing Homely – A better way to find your new home.

Over the past 12 months we have been busy building a simpler, faster and more beautiful real estate search experience. One that not only helps you find a street or suburb to live, but also helps you find the perfect home. Combined with the amazing local content we’ve collected from, we truly see Homely as the future of real estate in Australia.

With tremendous industry support, over 1700 real estate offices have committed their listings to Homely, including well known brands such as Ray White, LJ Hooker, Harcourts, Belle Property, Starr Partners and RT Edgar. This is a big signal to us that real estate in Australia needs a change, and we hope to bring that to the industry. With more partners coming on board every week, we can’t wait to unlock every home in Australia for your real estate search.

So how does this impact you? All of your ratings, reviews, questions and answers are living at a new address. That’s it! We are still the same passionate community about amazing places to live, but now we have shiny new coat of paint, with homes for sale and rent.

As we are in BETA, we’d love to get your feedback, so please feel free to email the Homely Help team at [email protected]

We’ve created Homely to be different, to buck the trend of what has been, and pave the way forward with you. Simple, fast and beautiful. We hope you love Homely as much as we do.
