A property website helping people own property together, Kohab has launched a collaborative social property platform aimed at changing the shape of searching for and buying property.
The online platform and app allows users to discover and discuss properties alongside buying partners, family and agents or advisors in one place.
Founder and CEO David Dawson said that the enhancements are intuitive.
“We identified the common pain points of property buying as stress, fatigue and communication frustration.
"We’ve created the new network to combat these experiences and bring the excitement, adventure and fun back into the journey of finding, and owning, your dream property.”
He said that the aim was to make the shared experience of buying property together a more exciting and easier experience.
“No longer will buyers need to separate property listings and data, and have fragmented conversations across different communication channels.
“Kohab’s new dashboard interface allows all property conversation and information to be available in one online destination, giving those who are searching for and buying property a faster, more collaborative experience.”
Mr Dawson said that members define and group what they’re looking for into personalised “dream boards”.
“They have integrated messaging and alerts, inspection times and current property statuses, and they also allow members to invite their family, friends or other parties to join.
“Kohab members can also use their dashboard to chat directly with agents about each property, making communication between the two happen in real time.”
He said that the new offering would assist agents, buyer’s agents and other property influencers.
“By offering an entirely new ecosystem of curated ‘public boards’,” Mr Dawson explained.
“Business users will be able to reach new audiences and engage with existing clients by creating ‘public boards’ that buyers can follow to stay up to date with property developments.”
Mr Dawson also said that “client boards” offer a “more focused” approach for business users.
Belle Property Dee Why principal Brendan Pomponio vouched for the new platform.
“It’s really exciting and will bring agents and buyers together in one social, easy-to-use hub.
“The new platform is going to revolutionise the property industry by allowing real estate and buyer’s agents the ability to showcase curated property options to buyers as well as enabling dynamic chat and messaging.”
