On Wednesday Trade Me Property (TMP) announced a new pricing structure, almost a year after the implementation of the radical switch from a subscription model to a pay-per-listing business model.

That model has, it seems, proved to be a too great a stretch for the industry to accept and, likely as not, too troublesome an issue for Trade Me [NZX: TME] to continue to deal with as its annual reporting is just three weeks away.

On the face of it, the new pricing structure is a significant win for the real estate industry as it re-establishes the subscription model, while at the same time offering a scaled per-listing fee and a regionalisation of pricing.



Don't be shy! Have your say....
