As part of the ongoing strategy of providing an end-to-end, one-stop solution for the customers, the initiatives of the home-grown proptech company will allow the team to become experts in their areas of expertise and continue being in the forefront of real estate.

Ohmyhome in August announced the introduction of four new services on its property tech platform. The services in property tech platform include home renovation, moving, painting and handyman.
With the continuous goal of providing an end-to-end, one-stop solution for their customers, Ohmyhome decided to extend their service offering beyond just the buying and renting of properties, by identifying good service providers that can assist their customers in the renovation and move-in process.
Each partner that Ohmyhome works with is meticulously selected based on their reliability, professionalism, workmanship and customer service. They are also assessed across multiple areas such as track record, promptness of services and speed of execution, and have been tested by the Ohmyhome team.
“At Ohmyhome, we’re always looking at ways to improve our customer experience, and saw a growing need for home buyers to have easy access to services such as renovation and moving. At the same time, it was also essential that we only worked with partners that shared the same vision of providing good quality services to our customers,” said Nicholas Tan, Business Development Lead at Ohmyhome.
He adds, “Renovation and moving are the next steps, so it’s only natural that we incorporate them into our suite of services. Customers can count on us as we take care of the entire transaction process from search to deal-closing, conveyance and now renovation and moving in.”
Singaporeans to benefit from Ohmyhome’s all-in-one property tech platform
With the new services introduced to its ecosystem, Ohmyhome now has a total of ten property services on its platform including – DIY platform (free), agent services, conveyancing, mortgage advisory (free), home-staging, Feng Shui, renovation, painting, moving and handyman – to cement its status as the first, and only one-stop property solution.
Customers using the property tech platform can now enjoy the convenience of utilizing multiple services on a single app. Direct booking with Ohmyhome partners are also allowed on the app for the convenience of both the customer and the contractor.
“The whole of transaction process provided by the OhMyHome property tech platform, points to the signs of the times where property agents must upgrade to keep up or die”, said Mr Paul Ho, chief mortgage officer of iCompareLoan.
He noted that many property agencies struggle to keep up with all the regulatory changes in the industry, as well as the changing financial calculations for acquiring a property. He urged property agents to master the basics in property financing, refinancing, taxation and CPF.
Mr Ho said that iCompareLoan.com runs a full 2 – 3 days course on how property agents can produce such reports for their customers. He added that the trademarked course teaches Property Agents how to generate complicated Financial calculations using – Home Loan Report (TM) – in 3 mins flat. This helps Property agents to close deals faster and serve customers more professionally.
The Home Loan Report tool is a Singapore’s first one-of-a-kind analysis platform that provides latest updates of detailed loan packages and helps property agents, financial advisors and mortgage brokers to analyse home loan packages for their clients and give unbiased home loan / commercial loan analysis for their property buyers and home owners.
As buyers of the future grow more discerning, agents cannot afford to just rely on their personality or their experience to attract clients. Buyers and sellers of the future will increasingly rely on agents to have knowledge on property finance calculations and this is where the Home Loan report comes in.
This trademarked tool is a one-stop solution that can help deliver a detailed home loan report to property agents in 3 minutes flat. This is especially helpful when agents who do not have knowledge on property finance calculations make cold calls to potential clients and need to have a thorough analysis at hand in order to best direct each client on what their property buying and selling options are.
Such a report will not only help agents deliver the best possible property options to their clients, it will also help prevent the agent or potential buyers or sellers from wasting each other’s time since they already have all the information they need on the potential client’s buying or selling prospects at hand.
Property agents who want to continue working in the industry must set themselves apart and position themselves as thought leaders, especially in this day and age where digital marketing largely drives the economy.
