Landchecker raises $3.5m in Series A funding

12 July 2019

Property startup Landchecker has raised $3.5 million in its second round of funding.

The Series A was led by Kogan.com founder Ruslan Kogan, and RACV, who had also previously invested in 2017.

Prior to Landchecker, when anyone wanted to get information about a property they needed to go to many disparate sources. With Landchecker, all that information, including high-resolution aerial imagery, detailed property reports, listings and sales histories, planning permits, zones, and more, is available in one place.

The raise was completed after Landchecker expanded its services to New South Wales in May, following its Victorian launch in 2016.

“There are now eight million properties now available for search on the platform to its 40,000 unique users each month. It gives Landchecker capital for further expansion across Australia, in addition to investment in new product development, sales and marketing,” says Landchecker Co-founder and CEO Will Leaf.

The platform will roll out services to Queensland in the next quarter as part of its expansion plans. It will also commence partnership with Global X, allowing it to sell certificates of titles and instruments for all properties across Australia.

“The property market is a complex environment,” said Ruslan Kogan.

“Landchecker is at the forefront of empowering people to make informed decisions by using data and technology to break down these barriers.”

Launched in 2016 by architects Will Leaf and Toby Ewert, and property developer Ed Farquharson, Landchecker provides cutting-edge technology to property professionals and the property-savvy public.

Through its map-based interface, users can access key property information in unparalleled resolution and real time, including on-market listings and sales history, detailed property reports, high-resolution aerial imagery, planning permits, overlays and planning zones.
