Free-To-Use Platform to Buy and Sell on Your Own (DIY)
Completely free to use, Ohmyhome’s DIY platform connects home buyers and sellers directly to each other and helps them handle the transaction on their own. Without an agent, home buyers and sellers save on agent commission which is typically around 1% – 4% of the selling price.
A Different Kind of Agent Service
For those who prefer professional assistance with selling their house, they can opt for Ohmyhome’s tech-enabled full agent service. Ohmyhome professional agents are aided by technology that automate part of the transaction process such as advertising and generation of weekly performance analysis for the listings, and produce data-driven property reports.
To provide the highest service quality, Ohmyhome adopts a unique ‘engage the company, not just the agent’ approach. The home seller’s needs are first accessed before they are matched with the right in-house agent specializing in that geographic area and property type. Agents are supported by a dedicated team in customer service, marketing and technology, and provided unlimited marketing budget to accelerate the selling process, with the fastest deal closing recorded at three days. The full agent service, starting at 1% agent commission, provides a simple, fast and affordable home selling journey from search to closing.
