Selling your flat is more than just a property transaction because you are selling something close to your heart- a home full of precious memories.
Mr. Low, a 45-year-old Solution Architect shared with us his experience with Ohmyhome’s flat-fee and tech-powered agent service. Find out how he sold his HDB flat within a short period of time and at the price he wanted!
How did you first know about Ohmyhome?
I first got to know about Ohmyhome through my brother-in-law. He saw it through the news from one of the media channels. Knowing that I am selling my house, he shared with me about Ohmyhome and suggested that I explore this app. That’s how I knew about Ohmyhome and started using it.
What are some of your first thoughts about the Ohmyhome’s service?
I thought that was a piece of good news! This service should have been around years ago. As a matter of fact, one of the factors that attracted me was the Flat-Fee service that Ohmyhome is providing. With that, it helped me save a lot of money.
There are doubts about quality and professionalism of Ohmyhome agent services. What’s your opinion on this?
I initially had the same thoughts as well – as to whether the agents have sufficient experience or level of professionalism. But what struck me when I first met up with the agent was that he clearly explained to me all the details clearly.
It’s even stated in the contract that should the house not be sold, there will not be any fees payable. That placed me at ease in trying out the services. I’ve no regrets in taking the first step to try Ohmyhome.
What made you decide to sell your HDB flat through Ohmyhome?
There are two reasons, one is the technology. I am able to list my property on the app and see how many views there are on a daily basis gives me a lot of assurance in terms of how things are moving forward.
Another reason is the Ohmyhome agent that I worked with. He is very knowledgeable in the market, very approachable and sincere and someone who knows his trade. Working with him is very satisfying and I’m happy that I sold my flat in a short period of time and at the price that I wanted.
By engaging Ohmyhome’s agent service, how much money have you saved and how are you going to use that money?
By using Ohmyhome, I saved around $5,000-$6,000. Every dollar I saved is a dollar gained in my bank, right? I haven’t really thought about how I am going to use this money but it’s definitely a significant amount.
Would you recommend Ohmyhome to your friends?
Absolutely! I’ve been telling my friends and colleagues who are interested in selling their HDB flat about this app and the range of professional services that I get from the agent despite paying a flat fee. I think that the affordable fees for engaging the Ohmyhome service have a strong appeal. If you need a full service, you pay from $2888. If you only need documentation services, you pay a lower fee of $1688. That is something that the market would be able to digest easily.
What advice do you have for people looking to sell their house?
I think new apps like Ohmyhome are very disruptive to the market. It benefits consumers like myself – people who are HDB sellers and buyers. This makes it very easy for people like us to conduct HDB transactions. I think everyone should embrace and try such innovative applications out because the advantages are huge.
