The Top 7 Real Estate Listing  Sites in Kenya

The Top 7 Real Estate Listing Sites in Kenya

Nowadays, buyers are searching for properties for sale on
the internet
and conduct online research before
partnering with an agent.
If you’re anything like me, you can ALWAYS use another real estate listing website to advertise your property listings – especially when that
platform is FREE.

Here
is a comprehensive list of
the best real
estate listing websites
in Kenya. I have included a mix of property listing websites that
you will easily
recognize,
some of these real estate advertising websites are more established, some of them have a more targeted
audience for real estate. You will also find included real estate listing sites with varying amount of traffic than
others
.

So, let’s dive in.

1.    Property24

 This real estate listing website is part of an international
network of property portals in Africa and is designed specifically for advertising real
estate properties. The website aims to become the number one marketplace for
buyers and sellers of real estate in Kenya. The website allows you to list both
properties for sale and properties to rent in Kenya.

With thousands of monthly visitors and
ease of use, Property24 is an ideal platform to promote your properties for sale. Additionally,
it is free to post ads on property24. You can also opt to promote your
properties to increase visibility.

The only downside is that the large number
of active listing means that you are competing with thousands of other ads for
visibility and you must keep refreshing your listing to stay at the top of the recently listed properties.

2.   
Jiji

 Jiji
is a free classifieds portal for multiple products and services including
properties available for sale in Kenya.
This is the real estate listing website that most people think of first
for listing properties for sale due to its wide reach.
 It is free to advertise your property listing on Jiji.  Once you create a free listing, you can boost your properties so get
more people to view it
. The paid packages are
quite affordable.

With
the hundreds of visitors that the site gets each month, it’s hard not to
list
on this platform.
 It’s
also worth noting that many property buyers start their search with
Jiji,
so it’s a great way to gain exposure to a massive audience at no cost.

You’ll want to beware of scammers – so take
time before jumping into anything.

3.   
Premier
Agent

 This
is
us. We are
a relatively new real estate listing website dedicated to listing properties for sale only. Compared
to the above websites, we can be considered an upcomer by most. We average 10,000 unique visitors to our website on a monthly basis.  However, we already
have thousands of listings from over 1,500 agents.  As we continue to grow, we remain a fantastic
way to increase your chances of finding a buyer for your property. You can
register for free and see your
sales grow.

We have optimized our website for land and
plots for sale due to our unique map-based search for real estate.
Like the above two, we aim to be
the most comprehensive source of listings and information for homebuyers and
sellers.

So far, we have a good number of monthly visitors
and we shall generate legitimate leads and sales.

 4.       Buyrent Kenya

This
is one of the
popular property listing websites in Kenya. The website was launched
in 2012
and has been registering steady growth
in traffic.
The website allows you to list both properties for sale and
properties to rent in Kenya.

This real estate listing site is a great fit for people selling to a targeted audience of real estate
buyers
particularly in the upmarket areas of Kilimani, kitisuru, Westlands and
Upper Hill
.  This real estate listing website is again also designed specifically for the real estate
and is focused specifically on being the most trusted marketplace for buyers
and sellers of real estate.

The website does not have a free version,
so be prepared to boost your properties to increase visibility. However, if you
are dealing with upmarket properties, this is the website to use as the cost to
list is not prohibitive.

5.      RE/MAX Real Estate

RE/MAX
is a world-leading brokerage
with a network of
over 100,000 in more than 100 countries across the globe and according to their
website, “Nobody sells more real estate than RE/MAX.” Like other brokerage
sites, browsers on RE/MAX’s listing site will be connected with one of their
local agents. 

This website is a member only, so you must
join RE/MAX to list on the website. The website does not appear to bring a lot
of visitors. And while the brand is recognized globally, it is not a big player
in the local market as a listing website.

6.   
Pigiame

This
platform is
well designed, looks great and it makes the process of putting together
a listing very easy.
The great thing about Pigiame is
that it’s one of the few online real estate marketplaces that also allows
property owners to post real estate listings
for free but has a paid option where you
can boost your property
.

Considering
this website brings
a fair amount of visitors each
month, it may very well be worth your time and effort to upload your listing
details to this website.
The only drawback is that Pigiame is not an exclusive property portal.

7.    Social media

 Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and other
social networking sites remain good options to list. Facebook remain the best
medium when selling property. In addition to being the dominant player in
social media today, Facebook has also grown into a very active and effective
place to buy and sell real estate. Whether you choose to post properties for
sale on your page, Facebook marketplace or in Facebook Groups, Facebook offers an
opportunity to get more exposure.

What will
you do now?

Remember, the goal is to get your listing
in front of as many potential buyers as possible. Therefore, look at what each
of these options can bring to the table, particularly the free ones to start
off.

While it’s easy to assume your property
listings only belong on websites with tons of traffic, I think it’s also
important not to overlook the value of having your listings in front of many
different audiences. Even when an advertising outlet is less recognized or
newer to the market, it could still be worth your while to post your property
information there.
