Real estate browsing just got better

02 Oct 2019

In a New Zealand first, ? has partnered with Resene and real estate AI specialist company to bring a rich one-of-a-kind online property search experience.

Says chief data specialist Tom Lintern: “Homes Inspiration is a new platform harnessing the power of computer vision technology to automatically classify the room type of real estate listing photos.” This means that when Kiwis visit the new ?Homes Inspiration platform they can organise their property search by their favourite room of the house – a master chef kitchen or a super luxe bathroom. 

Resene is a foundation partner of ?Homes Inspiration and provides content on the latest paint and interior design trends that are relevant to the room types Kiwis have chosen to base their house searches on. Says Resene marketing manager Karen Warman: “Buying and selling homes is the catalyst for so many painting and renovation projects. We’ve gathered together practical and handy suggestions from our colour experts to help home buyers and sellers get inspired about how to transform different areas of their home.”  

It is estimated that ?Homes Inspiration has a growing collection of more than 200,000 categorised images across the categories of kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms and laundries. You can enjoy a new way to browse current real estate listings, see the latest styles and get inspired.
