New property portal, MyHome.ie, launched today

MyHome.ie, Ireland's new property portal, today officially launched its website. The portal boosts a nationwide network of almost 140 estate agents' offices, including its partner agents, Sherry FitzGerald, Douglas Newman Good and Gunne Residential.

Headed up by the former CEO of Dublin Chambers of Commerce Jim Miley, the portal says it has the largest up-to-date property listing available in this country, either on or off-line. The site is updated daily and has eight key sections.

MyHome allows house hunters to view full colour brochure of houses online and also plots the precise location of the house, plus local amenities, through a unique mapping function. This mapping function has been developed by the Iris Group, one of the country's leading technology companies.

Last December, AIB invested £1.8 million in the portal for an equity stake of 23%.
