Old Friends has closed down

Written by The Trade Me Team in General at 3:30pm, Fri 22 Jan 2016

Today we switched off It wasn’t a decision we made lightly, and we really appreciate the support you’ve given Old Friends over the past 13 years.

We’ve got some good news about the publicly available information though (e.g. photos, lost & found, notices). We’ve been working with the team over at the National Library and they’re in the process of archiving this information via an annual process called a ‘web harvest’. This means that information will remain available even after Old Friends closes. If you have any questions about the web harvest, please get in touch with the National Library.

New: Open Home Planner

Written by The Trade Me Property team in Property at 9:30am, Thu 21 Jan 2016

Have a busy weekend of open homes ahead and not sure how you will make it to them all on time? We’ve just released the Open Home Planner on our desktop site to help you out.

From the tool we will give you directions, journey times, and also point out any potential clashes you might have between open homes.

You can get to your Open Home Planner from the Trade Me Property homepage, or from a listing that has an open home time scheduled. More...
