Why do you feel the need to change allhomes? It`s clearly the no.1 real estate website in the region. It`s easy to use and easy to find your way around. If it aint broke don`t fix it. What ever you do don`t let it end up like the stupid domain website.

Get rid of the stupid thumbnail pictures that appear on the suburb listing. It’s a waste of bandwidth when you’re on a slow connection.

You should seek owners’ permission before you publish the price they paid for their home.

You published my purchase price, then I asked you to remove it, you said you would and then you did, and now it’s back there for everyone to see.

I was going to suggest bigger thumbnails and photos within the listings…

I heard somewhere that AllHomes are trying to branch out into other states and territories, that could explain why they are trying to improve the site.

Just curious – why don’t you want people to know what you paid for your house? It’s actually incredibly useful information for the community and for home-buyers, as it helps counter real estate agent spin. I’m all for publication, sorry!

I have recently been very involved with the AllHomes site, with childers purchasing houses.

I am hard pressed to suggest improvements to the current site. Auction prices are only unavailable if you didn’t attend the auction until listed on the ACTGOV site.

Sure, the agency employed photographers are more than capable of turning sows ears into silk purses, but this is quickly realised by serious buyers.

All Homes is a very competent web site for advertising property for sale.

I have absolutely no connection with All Homes. But their website works a treat!

I agree with Masquara – this is valuable information for ensuring the market is open and transparent. All sale prices should be publicly available.

You should publish the purchase price regardless of the buyers wishes. This kind of information should be freely and publicly available for all.

I think this thread may be full of contradictory requests.

Why is it a secret? It’s not like they are publishing any personal information.

Better search refinement. Fix the sort functions, try searching for commercial properties sorted by size or price. Ability to see all properties in a region, rather than having to go into each suburb

It’s good that they’re seeking to improve but it seems a bit strange that an online facility requires people to attend a public meeting. Online surveys or some sort of technological facility to express ideas would seem more suitable?

I dont know if this has anything to do with allhomes or the market, but it seems that many houses are already sold by the time they make it to allhomes.

Where do they publish the purchase price, I’ve been looking for ages?
I can see at the bottom of the suburb pages where they purchase the “last asking price” of sold properties….but this isn’t the same as the purchase price. So where is that found, and do they publish the auction prices?

Also, to the OP. Surely it’s a legal requirement and should be freely available as a public document. You pay stamp duty so the figures need to be accurate.

That’s a good one. Pin a point on the map, then show all available properties within 1km, 2km etc….ignore the suburb boundaries.
