Singapore-headquartered Dot Property Group said it is witnessing ?phenomenal growth? since starting operations in the country this year with a Filipina executive at the helm.
The company?s website allows property owners and real estate agents to list their properties for sale and rent for free. The property list includes houses, condominiums, villas, land, foreclosures and commercial spaces.
Established in 2013, Dot Property Group operates property portals in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore.
The websites have been attracting increasing numbers of visitors – not only locally but from around the region and the world, according to the company.
Dot Property Philippines, which began operating earlier this year, is the most recent addition to the growing Dot Property Group network.
The company said it sees huge potential in the Philippines, given the always-online lifestyle of the target market who find the Internet to be the most accessible tool when looking for the perfect property.
Alva Horgan, managing director for emerging and frontier markets for Dot Property Group, noted that with more than 45 percent of the total population of 100 million people using the Internet, the local market is tech-savvy.
?There?s a great opportunity for Dot Property Group to further establish the Group as the preferred choice for consumers when it comes to buying or renting property, or looking for market intelligence,? Horgan said
?Since arriving, Dot Property Philippines has already signed up some of the country?s leading property developers, real estate agents and other companies, and that number continues to grow on a daily basis.?
Early this year, the company also appointed Tanya Peralta-Yu as the country manager for the Philippines. Peralta-Yu will oversee all aspects of Dot Property Group in the Philippines, including day-to-day operations and promoting the company?s rapid expansion within the online portal market, both among consumers and advertisers.
Horgan said that Yu?s appointment comes at a pivotal time for the group, with the explosive growth of its business within the Philippines, regionally and globally.
?We are seeing incredible growth in terms of traffic, and for advertisers seeking to connect to young property seekers, we provide them with the most convenient tool available online to find their next property,? said Yu.
Two of the major drivers for the growth of Dot Property Group are the resources it provides to property searchers to find their next home with ease, and the seller-friendly features, including free uploading of property listings.
Real estate agents and developers can maximize their opportunities to showcase listings and generate real sales enquiries, while property seekers can search and filter a selection of the available properties.
