Kenya-based HassConsult, a major estate developer, agent and consultant in Kenya, recently launched a ‘live’ property price application, ‘My Hass Data,’ which the company says will simplify property data collection as well as purchase of properties.
The new app enables users to research property prices by suburb, street, size of property, type or rate of sales and vacancies, ‘live,’ with a real-time price geo-mapping function which allows them to build their own tailor-made real estate reports.
At the launch of ‘My Hass Data’ Sakina Hassanali, head of marketing and research at HassConsult, said: “In recent months we moved to a new level of data collection (information on property prices and development), now mapping every building in Nairobi, and splitting the data collected for commercial, retail and non-retail properties.”
“We expect this to be a best-in-class tool for any organisation or individual needing market information, conceiving investment strategies, or researching development concepts.”
Hassanali added that, getting high returns in the Kenya’s property market needs careful research into demand and uptake, since there are locations that do not have good returns on investments.
A subscription based version of the app allows potential property buyers higher quality and greater depth of up-to-date, relevant information.
