Landmark Properties launches online souk
Dubai, January 21, 2009
Adapting to the dynamic changes in Dubai’s real estate market, Landmark Properties has launched the Landmark Properties Souq, an online reverse listing service that helps buyers and leasers find sellers and landlords in a turbulent market.
Easily accessible from Landmark Properties’ homepage, www.landmark-dubai.com, the Souq’s innovative system gives serious buyers and leasers the opportunity to reach sellers and landlords by posting specific requirements.
With help from Landmark’s Property Consultants, the Souq will maximize buyers’ and leasers’ chances of attracting the right seller or landlord for the right price, said an official.
“Since more than 70 per cent of customers begin their property search online, we developed the concept of the Souq to let buyers skip the middle-man and communicate their property and price requirements directly to the seller or landlord,” explained Charles Neil, CFO, Landmark Properties.
The Landmark Properties Souq also benefits sellers and landlords, who are quickly realizing that success in the current market means catering to the preferences of end-users and investors.
"The Souq initiative was inspired by the fundamental changes in the Middle East’s real estate market over the past six months."
"It is a new way for clients to use Landmark’s extensive resources and understand what the region’s buyers and sellers really want,” explained Neil.
“The Souq represents our commitment to anticipate market fluctuations and adapt creatively, while upholding our proven reputation for exceptional customer service and industry leadership.”
With over 3.4 million monthly web hits to Landmark’s website, the Souq is the perfect place to browse the latest properties or post inquiries with a simple electronic form.
The Souq went live on January 1 and has quickly proven to be a valuable tool for anyone making crucial property investments in the coming year.
Close co-operation with Landmark Advisory, the company’s research and consulting unit, will make the Souq another forum in which Landmark’s Property Consultants can help clients negotiate favourable deals quickly.-TradeArabia News Service
