For Property Seekers: Creating an Account and browsing our Platform are offered to you free of charge.
In the event that you require some specific services that doesn’t fall within the Basic Service of this platform as stated above but still in line with real estate (or other premium extras or arrangements), you can contact us through any of our Support Contacts and we’ll let you know if that service is available and the cost involved, if any.
For Property Providers: Access to the Platform’s Basic Service (ie. Posting ads) is free of charge within our 6 months trial period, which ends in November 2020.
Thus, from December 2020, our Listing Fees set in, in which case you either pay a small fee for each property listed or subscribe to a listing package which allows you to pay a discounted lump sum for a period, which would cover your listings and other additional services. We also have unique premium plans, which you can choose to subscribe to at a fee, to help you get ahead of the rest.
