|How do I search for properties? Several search methods exist.
1) To list all properties in Australia, go to the main page and click on the total number of properties listed in Australia ie. There are currently 183 properties listed Australia wide
2) To list all properties in a particular state, click here and from the right hand side select the state of interest. The total number for each state is displayed beside that state.
3) If you already know the PropertyID, enter this number on the main page and then click search. A PropertyID is denoted by a 5 digit number and a 3 letter abbreviation. For example, 00148VIC, means that the property is listed in Victoria
4) From the main page, select either List Property by Region or Advanced Search, select your preferences, then click the Search button.
|Why is Free-Ads no longer completely FREE?
Unfortunately, due to the growing number of people accessing this website, we have had to introduce advertising fees. These are low cost fees compared to what you would normally pay if you were to advertise with various other online internet sites. This money will be used to improve services, to purchase higher bandwidth (meaning the website will be faster to access) and to place advertisements in local papers.
|I placed my advertisement prior to the introduction of fees. Do I have to pay anything?
For those of you fortunate enough, you do not have to pay for any advertising fees.
