“Whilst many businesses have suffered devastating losses as a result of the pandemic OpenLot has gone from strength to strength because of it.”

OpenLot Founder and CEO, Qi Chen has boasted on the resilience his company has in the face of market crisis. Chen originally worked at Realestate.com.au and REA before he launched his own platform earlier this year. 

OpenLot is an all-in-one home builder marketplace that helps users throughout the entire land-buying process, from dealing with land settlement delays, separate mortgages for land and building, knowing the conveyancer, fencing and landscaping, and finding the best housing estate.

Speaking on OpenLot’s success during the COVID crisis, Chen explained that the platform has grown from overcoming the various hurdles that have come from the last few months.

“This has been supported by the HomeBuilder Grant which created three times the search volume around house and land on Google in the last four months. Adding to this growth, developers and agents are recognising buyers are staying at home searching online, as opposed to visiting display offices, which has encouraged them to adopt new platforms such as OpenLot.”

OpenLot relies on the idea that consumers know what they’re looking for. The portal just helps them along that path while offering easy-to-use avenues to find the best possible matches. 

Currently, OpenLot is only operational in Melbourne but plans to expand into NSW and Queensland within the next 6-12 months.
