LAMUDI Releases Innovative APP for Real Estate Brokers

Global real estate marketplace makes selling much easier for licensed brokers.

Real estate agents need to be able to manage their listings reliably, fluidly, and on the move, especially since real estate is moving online. The new version of property portal Lamudi’s app brings real estate brokers an efficient and highly functional way of listing and selling properties.

An App for Filipino Real Estate Brokers

A typical day in the life of licensed real estate broker is fast-paced, and in an effort to make things easier for them, Lamudi has launched an enhanced app that responds to the rapidly changing face of real estate. More than ever, house-hunters are going online to find property rather than looking for paper listings. Kian Moini, co-founder and managing director of Lamudi Global, notes that “an increasing number of house-hunters in the emerging markets are heading online to search for and to buy property. Real estate agents have to adapt to a rapidly changing environment to meet customer demands, and to provide the best customer experience possible.”

The Rise of the Smartphone

In many emerging and frontier markets, such as the Philippines, new Internet users are skipping desktop and heading straight to the smartphone with its plethora of apps and social media outlets. In fact, according to Ericsson Mobility Report released in mid-2016, the Philippines’ number of smartphone users is expected to double from approximately 40 million to 90 million in 5 years, a boom that is driven by the increasing affordability of these hand-held devices. In the first quarter of 2016 alone, about 3.5 million smartphones were shipped to the Philippines, according to data from the International Data Corporation. Therefore, Lamudi’s app responds to this exciting trend by giving sellers and brokers access to the millions of house-hunters who are actively seeking a home using their smartphones.

How Does the Lamudi App Work?

From uploading new properties and managing inventories, to receiving client messages and performing advanced analysis, brokers can take care of everything at the tap of a finger thanks to the application. The app’s top priority is to help brokers to showcase their business in the most impressive way possible. Through creating a detailed profile and a thorough description of their services, brokers and sellers can demonstrate their reliable and transparent services and gain the trust of potential clients. Clients can see photos of each property, complete contact details, and precise information about each service.

Attractive Layout for Property Services

The app’s design is important, especially for clients, who value not only usability but also a clean and attractive design. This makes using the app a more pleasant experience. Recent updates include the integration of a progress bar on the “Manage Properties” tab. Brokers can now preview their properties as they go along and monitor the speed of uploads when they add new information or new images. In addition, it is now possible to add breaks in property descriptions, making the layout of each property description more visually appealing to house hunters.

Listings Are Visible to Investors on a Global Scale

The world of real estate is constantly being transformed by technology, and the Internet has played a large part in the globalization of real estate investment. Presenting properties on Lamudi’s international platform opens up agents’ listings to investors from all over the world. When listing properties, agents can now add a currency code. Each property’s price can show up both in US dollars and in Philippine peso, whatever suits the agent’s target market best.

Through innovation and global expertise, Lamudi offers brokers and house-hunters flexibility and a wealth of enhanced features. Selling and renting has never been easier, and the engineers at this platform are always striving to go further.

Midea and Solane to Bring More Cooking at Home

Midea, one of the world’s leading manufacturer of consumer appliances, took part in Solane’s Dealers’ Convention held at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel. Midea has been providing Filipino households with home solutions that are surprisingly friendly and convenient. Solane, on the other hand, has always been a household name for a long time and it has provided many Filipino homes the enjoyment of having to cook their meals for the whole family. 

At the event, Midea gave raffle prizes— an Induction Cooker, a 20L Digital Microwave Oven, and a 20L Manual Microwave Oven— to Solane dealers and distributors. The two brands have sealed a promo partnership that every household would enjoy. Midea recently added a new product to their lineup of kitchen appliances that could make any home a center for feasts and many other gatherings. They have 3 new gas range models that are meant to bring out the chef in every family member. 

Midea gave away raffle prizes for the Solane Dealers’ Convention (L-R) Marketing Manager for Isla LPG Corp., Ms. Valeri Villano; the winners, Mr. Efren Galon and Mr. Rey Panlilio; and Midea Assistant Product Manager for Kitchen Appliances, Ms. Roanne Hallig

Midea has two 50cm gas ranges –one with 4 gas burners and a 58L oven, and another that has 3 gas burners, a hotplate, and a 58L oven. The last one is a 60cm gas range with 4 gas burners and a 65L oven. Anyone in the family who loves to cook and bake will enjoy this gas efficient and stylish gas range in their kitchens. Filipinos are known for the heavy loads they put on their gas ranges whenever they have a gathering or a party, Midea ensures that their gas ranges have the durability to withstand the test of Filipino-style cooking. 

One of their models, which has the hotplate, is ever ready whenever you run out of cooking gas. This hotplate allows consumers to cook their meals just by using electricity, and knowing that it is made by Midea, they can be sure that it will not cost much on their electric bill. And with Midea and Solane working hand in hand in giving Filipinos more enjoyment in cooking, the two have partnered for a promo that would provide families with more gas to use in cooking. 

For every purchase of one of Midea’s new gas ranges, the customers could get a gift cheque that gives them one free Solane gas tank, which they can claim from any registered Solane outlets or distributors.

Now more families can enjoy more cooking at home and more feasts for their friends and loved ones. The promo will run later in March.
