While property seekers in Singapore take an average of seven months from the start of their property search to closing the transaction, they simultaneously search for home repair and renovation service providers. This collaboration will provide them convenience and accessibility to a range of high quality services in home maintenance and renovation. The agreement will connect over 10 million property buyers across South East Asia starting with Singapore on PropertyGuru.com.sg, with hundreds of qualified service providers such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters, handyman, locksmith, movers, pest controllers, air-con service companies and much more.
“It is PropertyGuru’s brand philosophy to empower property seekers and home owners to make better property decisions, regardless of whether it is at the initial property search process or during the home ownership phase. By working together with EasyHomeFix.com, we will be able to provide more value to these consumers, while at the same time, create opportunities for home repair service providers in Singapore to connect with potential clients, and grow their businesses even more rapidly,” mentions Steve Melhuish, CEO of PropertyGuru Group.
The partnership comes at a time when the home repair and maintenance market in Asia amounts to $26 billion, and expected to grow at 9 percent CAGR. In Singapore alone, with 90 percent of Singaporeans owning at least one property and an existing supply of 1.2 million homes in the market, it makes Singapore’s home repair and maintenance market worth almost $1 billion.
“Repairs and house maintenance can be a problem area for many home owners. The issue is often three-fold; whether the service provider is available to do the repairs at the time you need, his quality of service and reliability. EasyHomeFix.com provides a single online solution to day-to-day house repair problems, in an age where property owners are going online to conduct their searches,” explains Neha Chopra, founder of EasyHomeFix.com.
