Ohmyhome opts for video-based home viewing

Singapore, April 2020 – Ohmyhome is Singapore’s leading PropTech Solution and a one-stop property platform that makes property transactions simple, fast and affordable through a DIY platform.

As part of the business continuity plans and related precautionary measures during the current Covid-19 pandemic, Ohmyhome has introduced video-based home viewing to reduce the buyer meet-ups and lessen the risk of virus transmission.

Prior to the enforcement of lockdown measures by the Philippines and Malaysia governments, the company already enforced work-from-home policy which enabled the employees to be sufficiently prepared to work from home and ensure business continuity.

“Right now our strategy is to focus on business continuity, to ensure that our platform continues to be well-maintained by our technology team and our agents are healthy and ready to serve property owners and buyers,” said Rhonda Wong, Co-Founder.

Precautionary measures like deep cleaning and disinfecting of the office by professional cleaning company to ensure a safe environment for employees and customers and good environmental hygiene practices continue to be the focus to maintain as semblance of “business as usual” as far as possible.

Ohmyhome believes that Singapore mass market housing is still transacting actively because people who need to sell have made plans years ago to move into a BTO / new home that is about to be ready. These are not short-term decisions that falter with sentiments.

Real estate developers are also providing better priced new launch products that is well suited to the market demand.
