6) Internet system nest.by
Until recently, it was said on the site, it was a non-profit technical means "to transfer information between contracting real estate market", where services for users are free. Now this part of the description had disappeared from the story about the essence of nest.by, along with anything, I suppose, just a popular portal and will be selling platform for advertisers.

Today, the most "enthusiastic" - Egor Dorofeev - the owner has a few very successful internet resources. Among them, this is the most popular bulletin board.
Know and, despite all the flaws in the design (obviously time to change), used by many market participants rent in Minsk and the Minsk region. Today you can find not only the ads from owners and agents of rental of residential and nonresidential facilities (more than 1800 "posts" on "rent-selling-buy-shoot), but the catalog of the secondary housing (more than 350 proposals), some new buildings of the capital and - private ads from shippers and builders.
Oddly enough, once again there is no convenient filter for the formation of an adequate search query, but the new "obyavki" per day are allocated separately.
3) ts.by - Corporate Group site "Your Capital"
The largest real estate company in Belarus, the real estate market in the online published in 2003 and today could well be a model of successful promotion on the Internet. In addition to good design and a large current information, the main difference from the other participants in the rating - the agency out in such fashion today, social networking and community, such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Livejournal.
While the site is largely a presentational character, but in the future, as told «EJ: Properties" in the company, a resource plan to integrate more deeply into the internal information systems "Your Capital", with which he will perform a service role.
2) irr.by and tut.by - Category "Real Estate"
Initially decided that each site take a special place in the ranking, making it still did not. Publishing Holding, owner of the trademark "Hand in Hand" joint venture "BelPronto LLC is structured and the site owner of ads www.irr.by, and partner portal tut.by - co-owner of the section" Real Estate ".

Practice shows that the resource is now equally popular and professional market participants and customers.

You may notice that the first top-10 «EJ: Real Estate for the most part included the most eminent and the old portals, published online in a few years ago. But the fact that in a year rating may look different, confidently declare trapped in the top 10 of the most ambitious new entrants to the market: "Pro-Real Estate and domania.by.
Oleg Levchuk, director of Internet marketing group of companies "Your Capital":
- Our industry market on the Internet is clearly not enough content, but at this stage of his development of portals for real estate work to a greater extent for advertisers, not users.
Our concerns lie in the fact that affordable unlimited broadband (5 Mbps for $ 15) does not appear in the next few years in Minsk, home surfing will not really free, and video content will be limited.
Alexander Martynenko, head of the project REALT.BY:
- Virtual real estate market today do not have enough buyers. Real estate agencies do not have enough expertise and knowledge to advance the Internet. Builders - journalists who would write news for posting on the Internet.
In addition, concern is the presence in the rankings, directories, search engines large number of sites on the property, containing inaccurate information and without adequate support services. By posting information on these sites, users often can not remove it afterwards. There are sites that download with the help of robots or other methods of information from a variety of so-called "open source" and publish in their own, which improves their ranking in search engines, but often such information introduces visitors to the confusion.
