CASAFARI’s Property Sourcing: A How-To Guide

Properties inside CASAFARI's Property Sourcing

Most countries in the world suffer from the same problem: chaos, a lack of access to public records when it comes to real estate, making navigating the property market a non-straightforward process. Not only are homebuyers, owners and rents lost, but it also means that the professionals of the sector operate without essential real estate data to help them streamline their work and advise their clients.

Which is why the Property Sourcing is one of the most central products of CASAFARI: it accomplishes our mission to solve chaos and bring transparency to the property market by aggregating millions of listings from thousands of sources every day. 

See which features of our Property Sourcing allow you to have access to the largest real estate database in Europe.

Property Sourcing: an improved experience for your property search

What we’ve learnt from real estate professionals is that staying updated on daily market activity is a time-consuming process, involving multiple internet tabs open on dozens of online sources. Well, not anymore!

CASAFARI Property Sourcing is a centralised information on the entire property market. This application is designed for you to be able to quickly:

  • source new properties and find market opportunities;
  • track your own portfolio and identify exclusivity breaches;
  • monitor the activity of competitor agencies;
  • prepare for meetings with clients thanks to the access to all past information about a property;
  • grow your portfolio with FSBO leads.

You can search by tenths of filters to find the property that matches the exact needs of your client or the market information needed for your daily tasks. Some of the filters offered on our Property Sourcing are:

  • Price range and type of business (rent or sale);

Setting Alerts for recurring property searches
