SINGAPORE, 8 February 2017 | Ohmyhome, a local online property platform and CEA-licensed real estate agency, has successfully closed its first Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS)1 unit through its agent service. By opting for Ohmyhome’s S$2,888 flat fee full agent service, the seller has made tremendous savings in their pursuit of an agent.
Developed to empower users to take control of their housing decisions, Ohmyhome is not only a free platform that connects Housing and Development Board (HDB) home owners to home seekers, it also provides complimentary assistance through the Ohmyhome hotline for users who require additional assistance.
Alternatively, users also have the option of engaging Ohmyhome’s full agent and documentation services at a flat fee, regardless of the property’s size or price.
In the company’s first ever DBSS transaction, the seller was looking to market a 24th storey unit at City View @ Boon Keng. Through Ohmyhome’s flat fee full agent service, the seller successfully received an offer from a potential buyer. Instead of paying 2% in agent commission, which amounted to over S$19,000, in this case, the seller only had to pay a flat fee of S$2,888.
The seller shared, “I’m happy to have engaged Ohmyhome to help me with the sale as the agent was very knowledgeable, detailed, friendly, and most importantly, involved me in every step of the way.”
Rhonda Wong, CEO of Ohmyhome, said, “At Ohmyhome, we are committed to empowering people with smarter options in the buying, selling and renting of their homes. We provide them with the help and services that they need to make their housing transactions successful.”
By having the option to engage Ohmyhome’s experienced property agents, users are empowered to take control of their housing decisions, no matter what their preferred way is. As the platform’s slogan goes “My Home, My Way”, users really do get to choose how they would like to transact.
All agents that operate under Ohmyhome’s flat fee agent service have a minimum of 5 years of experience in HDB transactions and are hired on a full-time basis. This means that they can concentrate on servicing home owners and home seekers. For some users, agents continue to play a major role in their housing transactions, and Ohmyhome is actively recruiting experienced agents to continuously serve the demand.
Agents must also possess the values of nurturing the Ohmyhome culture. The organization’s motto is “honest, easy and free”, which is about being honest with clients and making their transactions hassle free through putting the needs of the clients first. It also continues to cultivate a culture of love, relationships and family values which in their definition make up a perfect home.
