A new way to hunt for your dream home with Search Smartly

If you're reading this, you might be a first-time buyer who has found out that Tembo can get them on the housing ladder sooner than they imagined. Or you might be a mover who has just discovered their new buying budget and wants to discover what that can buy.

Whatever your situation, searching for your dream home is time consuming. In fact, on average it takes between 10-12 weeks, time largely taken up by trying to narrow your search and make big decisions about what’s most important to you. Perhaps you want to live near a gym, or to have a local park nearby so you can walk your dog. This equals time, energy and scrolling. Lots of scrolling.

If this sounds familiar, then we have a solution for you. SearchSmartly’s intelligent property search platform makes it ten times easier for movers and buyers to find the perfect place to call home. 

How? Well, their platform helps you to find the most suitable neighbourhoods for your commute and budget. So instead of spending countless hours researching individual areas on Reddit threads and Facebook groups, you simply pick what matters most to you in your ideal neighbourhood and within two minutes, you’ll be shown a range of flats or houses to suit your needs.

Some of the things you can tweak to make your search truly personalised include:

  • Your daily commute location, how long you’re willing to spend on your commute and your preferred mode of transport. Trying to solve for two commutes with your partner? Just enter both your commute locations and your respective preferred methods of getting to work and the tool will pinpoint the areas that are mutually convenient for both of you.
  • Your budget, preferred number of bedrooms, minimum bathrooms, and even minimum square footage. SearchSmartly’s smart AI systems will extract this data from the listings and allow you to filter away to your heart’s content.
  • Your idea of the perfect neighbourhood, such as how important it is to have nearby schools, public transport stations, green space, cafes and restaurants, and much more.

Once you’ve found options you like, you can share and shortlist your favourites, making it easier to collaborate on searching for a property you’d possibly be sharing with a partner, family member or friend if that’s what you’re looking for. And finally, their customer service team will be on hand to get your viewings booked in, give you top tips on how to be successful with your search, and provide you with alternative property options should you need friendly guidance and knowledgeable insights. 

So if you’ve already discovered what you can afford, and you’re ready to get going on the property hunt, why not try SearchSmartly?
