HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM, SEPTEMBER 12, 2016: Since starting operations in the country, Dot Property’s Vietnam website has seen huge growth with the website – www.dotproperty.com.vn – allowing property owners and real estate agents to list their properties for sale and rent for free.
Building on this growth Dot Property will be opening its first office in Ho Chi Minh City on September 12, and has also appointed its first Vietnam Country Manager – Kristian Brennan.
Established in 2013 in Singapore, Dot Property is Asia’s leading connected property portal group, operating property portal websites throughout Asia in Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore as well as in Vietnam, where millions of local and international property seekers are actively seeking their next home to buy or rent. The websites have been attracting increasing numbers of visitors – not only locally but from around the region and the world.
Dot Property Vietnam, which began operating earlier this year, is the most recent addition to the growing Dot Property network. Dot Property sees huge potential in Vietnam, given the always-online lifestyle of the target market who find the Internet to be the most accessible tool when looking for the perfect property.
The growing population of young professionals in the country will be a source of future demand for residential properties. They will be searching online in greater numbers and www.dotproperty.com.vn is aiming to be their single source of information.
Alva Horgan, Managing Director for International Markets at Dot Property, said: “There’s a great opportunity for Dot Property to further establish our Vietnam website as the preferred choice for consumers when it comes to buying or renting property, or looking for market intelligence.
“Since arriving, Dot Property Vietnam has already signed some of the country’s leading property developers, real estate agents and other companies, and that number continues to grow on a daily basis.”
Dot Property has also appointed Kristian Brennan as Vietnam Country Manager. He will oversee all aspects of Dot Property Vietnam, including day-to-day operations and promoting the company’s rapid expansion within the online portal market, both among consumers and advertisers.
Horgan said that Brennan’s appointment comes at a pivotal time for Dot Property, with explosive growth of its business within Vietnam, regionally and globally.
Two of the major drivers for the growth of Dot Property are the useful resources it provides to enable property searchers to find their next home with ease, and the seller-friendly features, including free and easy uploading of property listings. Real estate agents and developers can maximize their opportunities to showcase listings and generate real sales enquiries, while property seekers can search and filter a comprehensive selection of the available properties.
Dot Property Vietnam’s listings includes houses, condominiums, villas, land, foreclosures and commercial spaces for sale and rent.
“We are seeing incredible growth in terms of traffic, and for advertisers seeking to connect to young property seekers, we provide them with the most convenient tool available online to find their next property,” said Brennan, for whom this move represents an internal promotion – having previously worked with Dot Property from its Bangkok offices.
“With a positive outlook for the real estate industry in Vietnam, we are well positioned to be the property portal of choice. Sustained economic performance will mean more jobs, resulting in more people with spending power, especially among the young working class,” he added.
“Whether they’re looking for a place to call their own or for investment, they have more resources to find the best location, compare the best deals or discover the latest updates in the real estate market. Dot Property Vietnam is more than happy to provide all the assistance it can give,” Brennan concluded.
Joining Brennan is Vietnamese native Lucy Tran as Business and Operations Manager. She was also working for Dot Property in Bangkok prior to the opening of the Ho Chi Minh City office.
