Ohmyhome App launch in September 2016 was a breakthrough for the real estate industry; the DIY App unveiled a new face in the property transactions in Singapore.
The Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) corrects the No. 1 myth about property agents and property transactions in Singapore that you need a property agent if you want to buy/ sell/ rent your property.
As highlighted in the article 7 myths about property agents and property transactions in S’pore, you don’t need a property agent but you probably want a professional by your side when it comes to property transactions, or you may go the DIY route through self-study and with the help of the new real estate app such as Ohmyhome.
Ohmyhome platform has non-duplicate listings
Other platforms may appear to have more listings, but the truth is, multiple users can post a listing with the same address several times. At Ohmyhome, each listing is unique because each address can only be posted once.
Free of Charge
Ohmyhome app is free of charge, and there’s no sign-up fee. If you are a buyer/ tenant, you may ShoutOut what you are looking for and search among the thousands of listings. You may advertise your property for sale or rent and suggest your listings to the buyers/ tenants in the ShoutOut section.
Authentic Listings by Direct Owners
The listings at Ohmyhome are by direct owners; you may schedule an appointment and make an offer through the in-app chat. You may transact with the owners without a middleman, which means that you do not need to pay the usual commission fees of 1-2%.
Exclusively by Ohmyhome in-house Agents
The only agents that you will see in Ohmyhome platform are our in-house agents. They represent sellers who have engaged our Fixed Rate Agent Services of $2888. There are no other agents allowed in our platform.

ShoutOut‚ is Ohmyhome’s latest in-app matching feature that helps home sellers and landlords discover what buyers and tenants are looking for, allowing them to reach out instantly.
This feature reverses the home searching behaviour. Buyers and tenants are now able to post their requirements in the app. It is time for homeowners to find your buyers and tenants directly.
Now, you no longer need to call different banks to check loan rates. By using the Ohmyhome app, you can now choose your preferred listing and review the projected monthly repayment amount with ease.

Explore the best rates regarding mortgage rates directly from the listing page and determine the optimal loan rate that suits your needs. All these are carefully pre-assessed by Ohmyhome to ensure that only the best deals are presented.
There are so many listings to choose from, with Ohmyhome Favourites, you may start ‘hearting’ your favourite listings to shortlist them.
Browse through the thousands of listings at the discover section, once you found the listing that you like tap the heart icon at the upper right. The hearted listing will automatically be added to your favourites. You may access your favourites from your profile.
It is easier to schedule Open Houses for homeowners to attract more home searchers. It helps you save time when connecting with the potential buyers or tenants instead of arranging separate viewing schedules.
The enhanced Open House Interface with Map view is a better way for home searchers to find Open House Schedules. You may show up at their properties on the specified dates and times and view it to your heart’s pleasure!
