Singapore’s leading property tech startup Ohmyhome is rolling out operations in the Philippines soon, giving Filipinos a chance to do fast, streamlined property transactions with just a few clicks.
With the Philippine government intent on restarting industries and businesses stalled by the nationwide lockdown due to Covid-19, Ohmyhome’s services through its application and website are primed to help accelerate this process in the local real estate setting.
What makes Ohmyhome different from other real estate portals in the market is that 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 that help ease pain points for buying, selling, and renting.
They do this by leveraging on their advanced technology capabilities and their team’s dedication to provide exceptional service to their customers.
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.
As 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 affirms this, saying that Ohmyhome provides the best of both worlds—a seamless DIY platform and professional agent services.
Rhonda points out, “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.”
She adds, “Customers who don’t DIY can also opt for our full agent services, which include market research on estimated valuation, powerful database matching of potential buyers, hosting property viewings, documentation, and more.”
This is a welcomed development in the Philippine real estate circuit that is blighted by unreliable agents, complicated government processes and disorganized websites, and the need to coordinate with multiple agencies. With Ohmyhome, property buyers can avoid stress, unnecessary delays, and botched deals.
Rhonda is confident that these issues will be a thing of the past. “Our team of highly professional and experienced agents will assist Filipino buyers and sellers in whatever service they need, at prices that maximize quality and sustainability.”
This is an assurance that is backed by Ohmyhome’s remarkable track record. 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.
Rhonda explains: “First, 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.”
The option to DIY, however, comes free as Ohmyhome wants a quality, reliable platform to be accessible to all customers. Home buyers and sellers will be able to manage their transactions on their own and connect directly with interested sellers and buyers.
Feedback from users shows that Ohmyhome’s DIY platform is extremely efficient, convenient, and easy to use. Positive and high reviews–five out of five stars–in the Google Play Store and on Facebook also show that Ohmyhome is a credible and trustworthy application for clients.
“And because of our simple transaction process and our competent agents, we have attained a satisfaction rate of over 99% in our Singapore and Malaysian markets,” Ohmyhome Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder Race Wong asserts.
Following the proptech company’s success in these countries, Ohmyhome’s forthcoming launch in the Philippines is bound to revolutionize the local real estate industry as well. As a one-stop-shop for property solutions, Ohmyhome will make housing transactions in the Philippines hassle-free and efficient.
