Would you prefer to do your online house hunting in Chinese? Now you can. We’ve just launched our Chinese-language version, with all the same up-to-the-minute listings plus the tools and resources to keep you on top of the market.
Accessible in China and anywhere else in the world, the new zh.rew.ca provides a highly local view of real estate in Vancouver and the surrounding area, from Whistler in the north to the U.S. border in the south and Hope in the east—the entire Lower Mainland plus the Sunshine Coast and Gulf Islands.
If you already use REW.ca, you’ll be familiar with the layout and functionality of zh.rew.ca. If our site is new to you, here are some of the features that make REW.ca the reliable source for home buyers and sellers in the Vancouver area:
- current MLS® (resale home) listings
- new development listings
- agent directory
- local real estate news
- news sourced from Chinese media
- school and amenity data
- mortgage rate information
- neighbourhood profiles
- email property alerts for saved searches
With the new zh.rew.ca, buyers and sellers can set up alerts-in Chinese-to tell them when new listings that match their needs come on the market. These listings are not just from one agent, one broker or one agency—they come from all participating licensed agents in the area.
New developments are also profiled on zh.rew.ca. You won’t find both new and resale real estate on the same site on any other local search site.
Another plus is that these property alerts and search results can easily be shared with family or friends anywhere in the world, to make consultation easy when you’re choosing a home or investment. Unlike many other sites, zh.rew.ca is accessible from China, adding further exposure and access to the site’s listings and articles.
To best serve the large and diverse Chinese community in Vancouver and overseas, zh.rew.ca includes original articles aimed at local interests, translated content from the English-language REW.ca, and news and opinion sourced from Chinese media around the world.
“We’ve set the bar quite high when it comes to the real estate services and information we provide to the Chinese community-we offer unique content and services not found anywhere else,” says editor Sui Hong.
“Zh.rew.ca is presented in simplified Chinese, which allows us to reach the biggest audience of local and international Chinese home-buyers, and it’s also really convenient for Chinese newcomers. I’m excited for Chinese agents as well, as they now have the ability to market themselves in their own language to Chinese consumers.”
We welcome a whole new audience of people who love watching Metro Vancouver real estate as much as we do.
