Since starting operations in the country, Dot Property Group’s Philippines website has witnessed phenomenal growth with the website – www.dotproperty.com.ph – allowing property owners and real estate agents to list their properties for sale and rent for free.
Established in 2013 in Singapore, Dot Property Group is Asia’s leading connected property portal group, operating property portal websites throughout Asia in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore as well as in the Philippines, where millions of local and international property seekers are actively seeking their next home to buy or rent. The websites have been attracting increasing numbers of visitors – not only locally but from around the region and the world.
Dot Property Philippines, which began operating earlier this year, is the most recent addition to the growing Dot Property Group network. The Group 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 a population of more than 100 million people and the 13th largest Internet audience worldwide, half of the population is under 25-years-old and, thus, is more likely to be tech-savvy. Internet use in the Philippines is more than 45 percent of the total population – that counts for almost half of the population.
The growing population of young professionals will be a source of future demand for residential properties. They will be searching online in greater numbers and www.dotproperty.com.ph is aiming to be their single source of information.
Horgan said: “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.
“Since arriving, Dot Property Philippines has already signed 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 Group also appointed Tanya Peralta-Yu as the Philippines Country Manager. She 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.
Two of the major drivers for the growth of Dot Property Group are the useful resources it provides to enable property searchers to find their next home with ease, and the seller-friendly features, including free and easy 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 comprehensive selection of the available properties.
Dot Property Philippines’ listings includes houses, condominiums, villas, land, foreclosures and commercial spaces for sale and rent.
“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.
“With the positive outlook for the real estate industry in the Philippines, we are well positioned to be the property portal of choice. The Philippines’ sustained economic performance will mean more jobs, resulting in more people with spending power, especially among the young working class,” she added.
“Whether they’re looking for a place to call their own or for investment, they have more resources to find the best location, compare the best deals or discover the latest updates in the real estate market. Dot Property Philippines’ is more than happy to provide all the assistance it can give,” Yu concluded.
