- Property Finder is now offering additional digital options to continue facilitating the house hunting journey, with new virtual house tours available both online, and on their social media accounts
- 360 Virtual Tours, floor plans, virtual tours and social media tours help make house hunting a digital reality
Dubai: In an effort to assist those seeking properties in the current coronavirus lockdown, Property Finder - the region’s leading property portal - has launched a raft of new innovative online initiatives, to allow prospective buyers to view properties as if they were there in person through online viewings. It also gives relief to its 7,000 plus agents who cannot leave their homes to perform viewings, but can now facilitate these in a safe and legal environment.
Property Finder continuously strives to empower its users with technology, but the rapid roll out of virtual viewing is a swift response to the new anti-coronavirus guidelines.
In addition, Property Finder’s social media channels will be offering Live Virtual Open House sessions, bringing the chance to tour a chosen property from the leading real estate site’s portfolio of top clients, from the comfort and safety of their own home.
Ari Kesisoglu, Property Finder’s President, said: “Despite the very real need for social distancing, Property Finder is still able to deliver on its mission of connecting property seekers to professional real estate agents.
“We are trying to do our bit by working closely with top brokers to support the regional real estate business, and create innovative solutions to help navigate through this tough time.
“Property Finder has always been at the vanguard of technology in the UAE and wider region’s real estate sector. While the coronavirus has changed the way we all live, we know that people still need to find new properties, and we have worked around the clock to help enable the best possible virtual experience.”
About Property Finder – www.propertyfinder.ae
Property Finder is the leading property portal in the MENA region and Turkey that facilitates the house-hunting journey for both buyers and renters.
Founded in 2007, the website has evolved over the years as the go-to platform for developers, real estate brokerages, and house hunters to make informed decisions on all things real estate.
A UAE-born start-up, Property Finder has branched out of the country’s shores and operates in a total of seven markets, including Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, and Morocco, and has a significant stake in the second-largest property portal in Turkey, which has over 6 million monthly visitors and more than 18,000 real estate agents.
US private equity firm General Atlantic led Property Finder’s latest round of investment of a total of $120 million in 2018. This is being used to hire further exceptional talent and investing in its technology and product capabilities.
The property portal employs over 450 employees globally, of which 204 people work out of its Dubai office, and generates over six million monthly visits as a Group.
In April 2019, Property Finder announced the acquisition of JRD Group, following an increased investment in Turkish portal Zingat.
In 2014, Property Finder acquired eSimsar.com, the top property portal in Saudi Arabia, while in 2013, the Group bought out realestate.com.lb, the number 1 property portal in Lebanon, and lastly, the acquisition of Selektimmo, a Moroccan portal, to pad out sarouty.ma, Property Finder’s Moroccan offering, in 2016.
