Be the first to recognise opportunities created by zoning changes

Zoning and planning changes dramatically increase or decrease a property’s value. Blockbrief is an award winning platform that will alert you to zoning changes, and provide deep detail to give you first mover advantage.

3 ways Blockbrief can help your business

  1. Be the first to identify new opportunities – Receive alerts when zoning changes occur within councils across Australia to get the earliest possible notice that property is now worth buying, selling or developing. Receive alerts on individual properties that have been rezoned but not sold or which have development potential.
  2. Save money on analytics and research – Blockbrief alerts you when zoning changes occur from more than 500 councils and provides detailed information on the changes, removing the need to scroll through hundreds of websites to find your next opportunity. This will free up your analysts’ time for more valuable work.
  3. Manage risk – Keep up to date with ever changing planning controls across multiple councils. Quickly identify when zoning changes have made sites no longer viable so you can get them to market and reduce your exposure to poor investments.
