Cable & Wireless HKT has launched an on-line property information service for property agencies, developers, bankers and surveyors. Property Channel is featured on HKT's business.netvigator.com Internet portal which targets the business community. Property Channel features industry news, prices for properties and advice on commercial property developments. Property Channel will 'give people more knowledge about some of the market trends', said William Kwan, HKT's vice-president of e-commerce business. Property Channel would later be used for e-commerce transactions, Mr Kwan said. A fee-based service to be launched in the next few months will list properties for sale for which the public can submit bids. The channel, presently available only in Chinese, will soon have an English version that may feature in HKT's Netvigator.ca portal, launched in Canada last month. Netvigator.ca is aimed at Hong Kong emigrants living in Canada. 'A lot of emigrants overseas want to sell their [Hong Kong] properties, but they don't know the valuation,' said Cheung Wing-ming, Chung Sen Surveyors executive director. Chung Sen Surveyors and another company, Hong Kong Property Information, plan to jointly launch on-line mortgage application and property valuation services on Property Channel at a later date.
