INTERESTED homeowners or investors can now view up-to-date information on projects by the Housing Authority and Public Rental Board following the launch of a new joint website.
In a statement yesterday, authority chief executive officer Alipate Naiorosui said the focus of the revamped website, which was accessible at www.housing.com.fj, was to provide Fijians and those across the region and abroad with updated information.
"The website is now the online portal for both organisations combining information on both the rental and home ownership markets," he said.
"The new website offers up-to-date information on housing projects in progress such as Tacirua East Stage Two, Nepani Stage Two, Waila City and Wainibuku as well as application forms for those interested in owning a lot and renting or buying a home.
"The website is a concerted effort by HA and PRB as the housing developer and rental drivers to collaborate and actively contribute towards government's vision of creating affordable, decent and quality housing for all Fijians by the year 2020.
"As we continue to proactively engage the rental market and develop housing options for all income categories, it is important that we present our message in a timely, consistent and accessible manner. The new joint website achieves this goal."
The authority said online visitors would be able to access bill payment options, enquire about products and services, and browse through information about housing subdivisions under construction.
"The website is the first in a suite of efforts to be revamped this year in an effort to improve customer communication channels," the authority said.
"New features to the website include newsletter sign up, social media link ups and information on housing stakeholders."
