Oftentimes, you’ll have to look for a trusted middle-man if you want to sell your home. Add the complications of securing all the documents, and the entire process could be extremely time-consuming.
Thankfully, that is about to change with the launch of Ohmyhome, an app that lets you buy and sell, or even rent properties online minus the hassle. The platform is designed to make housing transactions simple, fast, and affordable for everyone, giving those looking to buy all the information they need.
Ohmyhome will provide a DIY option for Philippine customers to simplify the process. They will be able to browse genuine listings that are free of dummy or duplicate accounts. They can also enjoy savings as the DIY platform comes absolutely free – from listing all the way to deal closing.
Those who are not confident in their knowledge, or just want a ‘post and leave it to them’ transaction can engage the services of Ohmyhome’s full-time in-house property agents at cost-friendly prices.
The proprietary technology will handle about 90% of the agents’ work like sourcing for new leads, matching suitable buyers to sellers, as well as scheduling and advertising. This frees up the agents to focus on the customers.
“We are committed to providing a seamless end-to-end housing transaction that will make everything easier for our Philippine customers, and in the context of the global pandemic, safe—a critical factor amid the Philippine government’s ongoing concern for health protocols.”
– Rhonda Wong, CEO and Co-Founder
The Vision Behind
Rhonda and Race Wong established the startup to streamline property transactions through a unique hybrid model, combining agent service with a DIY platform that’s absolutely free to use. Ohmyhome does not charge a fee for the listing and connecting buyers and sellers.
“With the DIY platform, our objective is simple. By enabling property owners to take control of their own homes, they save time and money. And once a property is posted, our algorithm will match them with the buyers, so the more popular our platform, the more magic it does.”
Inspired by its success in Singapore in Malaysia, Ohmyhome expects to achieve the same feat as it brings advanced technological capabilities to the Philippine real estate industry.
Both also point out that in the property market in the Philippines, agents are still relevant, mainly due to the deep sentimental attachments to homes and preference to seek a warm human element when negotiating sales of long-held properties.
That’s why the expertise of Ohmyhome’s highly professional Filipino agents combined with the technology enables the company to handle the majority of the agents’ work. This also makes it easier for Filipino customers who may have too much on their plate.
