International property platform Lamudi has re-launched, with a complete revamp of its website, to offer a more intuitive design that streamlines the online house-hunting process for users globally.
The new website introduces a responsive design, with the site adapting to match the user's particular device and screen size.
The platform's appearance has been improved to display properties for sale and rent in an easier-to-read format with larger photos.
Dedicated sections for real estate agencies and new space for advertisements have also been introduced.
Lamudi is a global real estate portal focusing exclusively on the emerging markets.
The website is currently available in 28 countries in these regions.
The new design has been rolled out for all countries in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, with Latin America to be relaunched in early 2015.
To ensure the website remains highly relevant for each of its local markets, Lamudi has introduced different variations of the website, including a customised search field for each country.
Kian Moini, Lamudi's global co-founder, said: "This redesign puts the user at the center of our product. The responsive design is very important because we know an increasing number of our users access Lamudi on a mobile device in addition to a desktop PC. The new design is tailored to our customers' needs, making it easier than ever before to find the perfect property online and to contact real estate agents via phone, SMS or email.
"At the same time, we will be introducing a variety of new features to cater for our partners, particularly agents and brokers. This is why we have introduced dedicated sections to showcase real estate agencies and created more space for listings, photos and advertisements."
On his part, Obi Ejimofo, managing director Lamudi Nigeria said, "my favorite feature is the new home page design, it is simpler with a much more intuitive search paradigm all designed to increase the ease with which users can find a new home. But the new design goes way beyond the look and feel. We now have a powerful platform upon which we expect to accelerate our innovation drive with the regular release of new features for buyers and sellers in 2015."
Launched in 2013, Lamudi is a global property portal focusing exclusively on emerging markets.
The fast-growing platform is currently available in 28 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, with more than 750,000 real estate listings across its global network.
The leading real estate marketplace offers sellers, buyers, landlords and renters a secure and easy-to-use platform to find or list properties online.
