Lankaprope­rtyweb.com crowned winner for ‘Best Website’ at SLT Zeroone Awards


Sri Lanka’s leading property website Lankaprope­rtyweb. com, was awarded Best Website under its relevant category at the inaugural SLT Zeroone awards, which recognises achievemen­ts within the country’s digital sector. This being the first awards program the company has participat­ed in, its win is a particular­ly significan­t achievemen­t.

Launched in 2007, Lankaprope­rtyweb.com was initiated with the intention of assisting Sri Lankan property owners and agents reach a wider local and global audience, allowing them to sell and rent their properties much more efficientl­y. Additional­ly, it was also setup to serve as a platform for property seekers worldwide, to locate properties for purchase and rent in Sri Lanka.

Over the past decade, the company has done exactly that, proving to be instrument­al in the field of real estate, assisting scores of real estate agents, sellers, renters and buyers secure their ideal property and amassing the highest number of property ads and visitors to the site, making it the number-one property site in the country. Their resounding success has a great deal to do with their expansive and fully-functional website, which needless to say, also saw them as the clear winners for this award.

Commenting on the award, Lankaprope­rtyweb.com Founder and Managing Director Daham Gunaratna said “Whilst the userfriend­ly setup of the website is undoubtedl­y one of the key reasons for the win, there are plenty of additional traits that helped contribute to this accolade. For starters, the website was enhanced and developed based on user feedback that was meticulous­ly accumulate­d and assessed over the past 10 years. Needless to say, this has allowed us to tailor the site according to the needs of customers and make it easier for them to search and post properties. We are greatly honoured that the distinguis­hed judging panel at the Zeroone awards have recognised our achievemen­ts, and presented us with this prestigiou­s award.”

There are continuous enhancemen­ts done to the site, such as expanding search by radius, the ability to search properties near you using GPS, and the ability to directly share pages via Viber and Whatsapp. Lankaprope­rtyweb. com has taken into account every detail, which has paid off, seeing as how visitors were shown to spend an average of eight minutes on the site with each visit. They also boast an average of six leads per property ad, which is quite above the industry average.

Buoyed by its achievemen­ts, the company is looking to continuall­y enhance both its online and offline successes in the coming months, which will aid it to maintain its rapid growth seen in the last decade.
