Singapore’s proptech platform to set up operations in PH


    Singapore’s leading property tech startup Ohmyhome is rolling out operations in the Philippines soon to provide fast, streamlined property transactions with just a few clicks.

    Ohmyhome’s services through its application and website are seen to help accelerate restarting industries and businesses in the local real estate setting.

    While the other portals are focused on selling real estate, Ohmyhome is designed to serve customers in the entire buying and selling process by providing a unique hybrid model of a DIY (do-it-yourself) platform and full-fledged agency services.

    The portal is able to this by leveraging on its advanced technology capabilities and on its team of professional agents.

    Just as it did in Singapore and Malaysia, Ohmyhome will enable Filipino homeowners and searchers to buy, sell, and rent properties in a simple, fast, and efficient manner.

    This model has been proven highly successful in Singapore and Malaysia, where Ohmyhome continues to provide an estimate of 2,000 housing transactions per month. The platform also garnered 300,000 application downloads, over 175,000 active users, and 15,000 unique listings of real estate properties to date.

    Chief executive officer and co-founder Rhonda Wong said Ohmyhome provides a seamless DIY platform and professional agent services.

    “We are very different from property classified platforms. Our focus is not on advertising but on helping customers transact. We take care of the entire transaction process—from search and deal-closing all the way through legal documentation and mortgage advisory—making it simple for both first time property buyers to seasoned investors to transact real estate,” said Wong.

    Wong added customers who do not tap the DIY option can avail of the full agent services, which include market research on estimated valuation, powerful database matching of potential buyers, hosting property viewings, documentation, and more.

    With Ohmyhome, property buyers can avoid stress, unnecessary delays, and botched deals associated with unreliable agents, complicated government processes and disorganized websites, and the need to coordinate with multiple agencies.

    Since its launch in Singapore in 2016, Ohmyhome has proven its reliability as a platform, anchored on three primary advantages—it is simple, it is fast, and it provides value for money.

    “Ohmyhome is simpler. Clients can choose whether to do it themselves through the DIY option or engage an experienced in-house agent who can evaluate their needs. Second, it is faster. Consumers can search through unique listings and access services that can get the job done three times faster than market norms in Singapore and Malaysia. And finally, it gives the clients their money’s worth, with efficient and reliable housing services,” she added.

    “Because of our simple transaction process and our competent agents, we have attained a satisfaction rate of over 99 percent in our Singapore and Malaysian markets,” said Ohmyhome chief product officer and co-founder Race Wong.
