Homehound’s History

Homehound is owned by one of Australia’s largest privately owned companies, IPMG which is fully owned by the Hannan family.

Homehound was born out of IPMG’s ownership of the Courier News Group, which featured the Wentworth Courier which was a major print marketing tool for real estate agents. Homehound was launched as a collaboration between Property Partners and IPMG, with Property Partners being a group of major franchises which included; LJ Hooker, Century 21, Ray White and Raine & Horne. The main purpose of this collaboration was to protect the industry from what has happened in recent times.

Homehound is now completely independent and 100% owned by IPMG but our strong ties with the industry remain as we have agreements and commitments from major franchises to supply listings for many years to come.
