Between June 2012 and November 30th 2015, property in Scotland could be added to NovaLoca free of charge. These free listings showed basic information only and were effectively ‘sponsored’ by Scottish Enterprise. Scottish Enterprise were paying only to access reports of availability. In order to provide this, NovaLoca chose to give agents the additional benefit of free listings on their open website. Providing free sponsored listings gave a great inward investment benefit for Scotland, helping agents, businesses and local councils to advertise and access a comprehensive list of availability.
NovaLoca’s contract with Scottish Enterprise came to an end on the 30th November 2015. However, NovaLoca is working with local councils and other bodies with hopes in the future to increase the areas covered by free sponsored listings. Any areas that become sponsored for free listings will be posted here.
Angus Council are sponsoring free listings within their local authority area effective 10th March 2016
Fife Council are sponsoring free listings within their local authority area effective 1st April 2016
Although some local authority boundaries divide postcode areas, for simplicity free listings are available to all properties within the following postcode areas: DD4-11, FK10, KY1-12 & 14-16 & PH12
Any other areas that become eligible will be posted here.
If you have a property within one of the sponsored areas that you would like to add to NovaLoca free of charge please email it to email@example.com clearly stating that you would like to add the property as a ‘free sponsored listing’, specifying the council name. Please note that only very basic information about the property will appear on NovaLoca (no company branding with enquiries coming through by email only). However, full information will be fed through the councils to be displayed within the property searches on their websites.
