Housenet.com.au has been named one of Australia’s 100 most innovative products or services, in one of the largest and most audacious innovation awards of its kind in Australia – the Anthill Magazine ‘SMART 100’ Index.
The SMART 100 Index was created by leading business media channel Anthill Magazine in 2008 to identify and rank Australia’s 100 most innovative products, proving to be one of the largest surveys of its kind in Australia.
“In true Anthillian style, the SMART 100 is an ever-evolving, ever-improving experiment,” said Anthill founder and Editor-In-Chief James Tuckerman.
“It identifies and ranks new Australian innovations by applying a combination of crowdsourcing, collaboration and common-sense. We employ the judgement of ‘mavens’ and readers.
“Unlike your average awards program, we don’t lock a panel of expert adjudicators in a small room. Neither do we demand a thorough analysis of each applicant’s P&L statement. We don’t even request an historical snapshot of ‘runs on the board’ or commercial achievements.
“This is because innovation is future focussed. It is about identifying and solving problems in ways that will change the way we live, do business and think.”
Mr Moffatt said Housenet aims to be the ‘base station’ site for homeowners, investors, residents and first home buyers.“We’ve worked super hard to build an innovation that helps people get better results with property, so it’s great to receive this recognition.”
We think our custom technology fills the gap that exists in your digital world between traditional real estate portals, property forums & social media.
“People use Facebook for friends, and Linked In is for your career, but what about your home? What site is the base for your property, and online relationships with the locals where you live or invest? Housenet is that site.
According to Mr Moffatt Housenet members can connect with other residents & property people in your suburb, access ‘live’ market data to find real estate bargains across Australia, and even manage home improvement projects online, with an online renovation tool.
“Membership is growing fast, and I’m sure this award will help even more which is great,” said Mr Moffatt.
