Ohmyhome Sees Success with DIY HDB Rental Portal

Ohmyhome is a proptech portal that aims to alleviate the search-related problems faced by tenants and landlords by providing useful features and implementing a direct tenant-to-landlord approach.

Since its launch, Ohmyhome has seen more than 35,000 users actively chatting and searching on rental. There are currently more than 1,000 non-duplicate, active rental listings on its portal. Growing in tandem with the successful HDB resale segment, these are new milestones for the proptech portal.

Today, we’ll show you how Ohmyhome simplifies the rental process, and how this contributed to their success.

Simplifying the Search Process with ‘Location & Price Map’

Ohmyhome’s ‘Location & Price Map’ offers a value-added feature that dynamically maps rental prices by location, making the search effortless and easy. The data visualization effectively simplifies the comparison of listings. The feature is especially helpful for foreigners looking to rent but are unfamiliar with Singapore. Now, they can easily see the listings available within a 2 kilometre radius of their desired locale.

A first in the proptech industry, ShoutOut allows tenants to post their requirements, and simply await suggestions from home owners. This streamlines the suggestions to tenant’s specific demands, saving them valuable time. The ShoutOut function on Ohmyhome has 7,000 suggestions for rentals.

Essential Information are Always Readily Available

Lack of knowledge about location, nearby amenities and transportation, and unit information, is a common issue faced by tenants, and the platform directly addresses this problem by readily providing such information on one convenient page. It automatically serves essential information such as floor area, type of apartment, and proximity to public transportation. At a glance, users are equipped with ample knowledge to make an informed decision on their rental.
