Welcome to Nestoria Australia, a site aimed at making it as easy to find a property as it is to use a search engine.

If you don't find the answer to your questions below, just send us some feedback, and we'll get back to you as quickly as we can.

Is Nestoria Australia a real estate agent?

No. Nestoria is a search engine just for real estate; we don't sell or rent out properties. We also don't sell mortgages. In fact we don't sell anything. Nestoria Australia is a service similar to Google, Yahoo! and MSN, but instead of helping you find the exact website you're looking for we help you find the exact property you're looking for.

There's a house for sale down the street from me and Nestoria Australia doesn't show it. Why not?

Good question. We can only include properties that we know about in our results lists. We work hard to find out about as many properties as we can, but we're dependant on our partners - property industry specialists like portals and real estate agents – to list a property before we're able to include it. If you know of a real estate agent we should be working with then don't hesitate to let us know via our feedback form. If you're an estate agent yourself and would like to list your properties with us, please get in touch.

Is Nestoria Australia free?

Yes, Nestoria Australia is a totally free service to anyone using it to search for real estate to rent or to buy.

How accurate is the information on Nestoria Australia?

Just like other search engines we gather our data from across the internet, which means that we're only as accurate as our sources. But our aim is to be as accurate and up to date as possible, so if you see an error on the site please give us feedback to let us know, and we'll correct it as quickly as possible.

How does Nestoria Australia make money?

There's no fee to the real estate agents who have their listings included in the Nestoria Australia search database. We make money by selling advertising opportunities, which can take several different forms: cost per click, cost per lead, cost per call or cost per email for example. Each of these options is related to giving agents good value per lead. Nestoria Australia only works with advertisers of real estate.

How do I find out more about a property I spotted on Nestoria Australia?

The headline of each listing on Nestoria is a link to the property's full listing on the site that submitted that property to us. As well as the headline link, each listing includes a link to the estate agent managing the property so that you can go directly to them if you have questions or would like to arrange a viewing.

Why does Nestoria Australia only show properties from certain real estate agents? Where are the others?

We'd like to show you listings from every real estate agent in Australia. And we're always working to expand the number of agents whose listings we show. So if you're an estate agent and you'd like to have your listings included in our search database we'd love to have you. You can find information about how it works on our real estate agent common questions page.

I'm a homeowner trying to sell (or rent) my property, how can I get it listed on Nestoria Australia?

Unfortunately we're not able to accept listings directly from property owners. But if you list with one of our partners then we'll be able to include your property in our results.

Where can I find more information about buying a house, getting a mortgage, etc.?

Nestoria is a service designed to help you find properties. We're very focused on keeping our site simple. For information about the home buying process there are many good resources on the web.

What about my privacy? Is Nestoria Australia storing information about me?

No, we take your privacy very seriously and don't store any information about you personally. We, just like thousands of other websites, do use anonymous analysis software to see how people are using Nestoria. We do this because we're interested in spotting any problems or bugs you encounter so that we can improve the way the site works for you next time around.

If you have questions about your privacy please read our privacy policy. And if we haven't addressed your concerns then please get in touch with us via our feedback form so we can answer your questions.

Why don't you show all properties on the map?

Not all our listings come to us with accurate address data, and in cases where we're not 100% sure we have the correct address, we'd prefer not to show you the wrong location. Thanks for being understanding about this, we know it's frustrating. The good news is that this is improving all the time.

Where can I find out the latest Nestoria Australia news?
