Last updated: 6 October 2023

Want to learn more about how Trade Me Property can help you on your property journey, the tools that we offer and the properties you'll find on site? Here's a rundown of everything that you need to know.

Who we are

Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, or rent a house, Trade Me Property is proud to provide Kiwi with the tools, knowledge and support they need to meet their property goals.

We’ve been around since 2005, so we know a thing or two about Aotearoa New Zealand’s property market. Plus we’re constantly  looking for ways to make the property journey simpler and more rewarding.

What we do

Whether you’re looking for flatmates for your uni flat, or aiming to grow an investment property portfolio, you’ll find plenty of options on Trade Me Property.

For buyers, we have more properties than anywhere else, with a search function that allows you to hone in on the properties that best suit your needs. You can specify everything from location, to price, to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you’re looking for, allowing you to find the results you want faster. When you click on a Trade Me Property listing, you’ll also find a whole host of insights about that property. This includes its estimated value, past sales history, mortgage repayment estimates, and lots more. 

Looking for commercial or rural properties? No problem, Trade Me Property has you covered here as well.

If you’re wanting to sell or rent a property, we’ve made the listing process quick and easy, meaning you can get your property  in front of Aotearoa New Zealand’s largest audience of renters and buyers, faster. We even have a tool that empowers you to find a local real estate agent to work with you towards this goal.

Need to fill a room? Flatmates Wanted makes it straightforward to find that missing person to complete your flat fam. You simply provide the  photos, rent price and description and your Trade Me Property listing then go live to our large renting audience.

You can access all of this on your desktop or the Trade Me mobile app for iOS and Android. Allowing you to receive notifications about price changes, make enquiries about newly listed properties, add open homes to your calendar, and so much more, all while on the go.

What we offer

There’s a lot that goes into a successful property journey – whether you’re buying, selling, renting or letting. However, regardless of which of these categories you’re in, property is largely a numbers game. If you’re buying or renting, you want lots of options. If you’re selling or letting, you want the biggest possible audience to see your listing.

This is where Trade Me Property really shines.

Over the last 12 months*, we’ve averaged 15% more listings in our residential for sale category than our nearest competitor. For buyers, this means you can expect a greater variety of properties to choose from than any other property site in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Sellers will be pleased to know that over the last 12 months*, we’ve had an average of 238,000 people visiting our site every day, across all of our platforms. That’s a lot of attention on our property listings.

*Data accurate as of 22nd September, 2023.
