Looking For A Home? Here Are 6 Websites To Help You
Do your house hunting at the swipe of your finger!
Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will do in your lifetime, so it could be quite nerve-wracking to look for the right house or condo. If you are tired of pounding the pavement or going on endless trippings with your broker, you might want to search for a home online through these local housing websites:
As one of the newest real estate platforms in the country (it was just launched in April 2018), Housal offers state-of-the-art tools to link together buyers, tenants, sellers, agents, brokers, and developers through a single app. This means that all sides (seller, broker, and buyer) all benefit equally from the platform. The site itself is divided clearly into real estate tools for the sellers (there are even daily schedule management tools for brokers) and property listings for the buyers.
This is one of the most popular housing portals in the country, with a wide and far-reaching database of properties to rent or to own, in almost any part of the country. One of the best features of the site is its appealing design (you can see some of the prime properties they are offering in one go), its well-organized listings, channels, and menu, and a handy chatbox if you want to ask any questions.
MyProperty is a simple but long-running real estate portal that has an extensive database of pre-selling and RFO properties to rent or own, with a directory of developers and brokers, and a lifestyle blog. Incidentally, Lamudi bought shares of MyProperty.ph in 2015.
One great feature of Zipmatch is that they offer different methods to search for a home: you can filter your search by the number of rooms, location, and even price range. Or you can go straight to their “Fresh Listings”, where the newest properties and units are posted. And if you decide on a particular city (Makati, Quezon City, Taguig, etc.), you can click on the “Popular Neighborhoods” section to see all the properties in the area at a glance.
This site is a pretty straightforward buy-and-sell/classifieds platform for assorted items (cars, jobs, and yes—homes) culled from various websites and filtered into one. Click on the search bar for the area, or click on the house type (condominium, apartment, farm land, etc.) and collated postings or ads for the property type will appear.
A relatively new site, Hoppler is a broker and agent-focused real estate site that shows listings for developments and properties for sale. If you scroll down, you’ll see the “Hoppler Magazine,” which features shelter-related articles, real estate industry news, and tips for brokers. The site encourages you to either post your own property for sale, or sign up as a broker or agent.
