Kiwibank launches Home Hunter app

According to Kiwibank, the app will tell users which houses match their pre-approval, provide registered values, comparable house sale, and estimated sale prices.

Kiwibank has launched Home Hunter, a free mobile app, that will allow New Zealanders to seek pre-approval for a home loan and then go house hunting armed with information provided by the app.

According to Kiwibank, the app, which is available on smartphone, tablet or desktop, will tell users which houses match their pre-approval, provide registered values, comparable house sale, estimated sale prices, and even the number of sunshine hours a property will get.

“The end-to-end process of securing pre-approval could be done before you’ve finished your morning coffee,” said Kiwibank CEO, Paul Brock.

“In a competitive housing market, where many people are finding it harder than ever to fulfil the Kiwi dream of owning their own home, we hope Kiwibank Home Hunter will make it a little bit easier,” he said.

The app was designed in-house by Kiwibank employees, Peter Fletcher-Dobson and Anand Ranchard. Kiwibank says it wants as many people as possible to download and test the app.

“We’ve created a Facebook community for people to tell us what they think and share their stories.

We’ll also be selecting a group of serious home hunters to document their journey as they use Home Hunter and other support from Kiwibank to navigate the real estate market over the coming months,” said Fletcher-Dobson.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
