When you are trying to search properties online, REA and Domain.com are often the first portals that jump to mind.
Australians now have a new way to purchase new property with real estate portal Swooper launching nationwide in February 2020.
The company is revolutionising the Australia real estate industry by making massive property projects seamless to the property buyers and providing end-to-end services.
Swooper has created top-notch applications using advanced technology for real estate business, and its ultimate goal is to add value to the real estate space through the power of technology.
Swooper features a wide variety of top-tier new property developments from across the country and is offering cashback benefit to save buyers thousands or more off the price of a home, enabling property hunters and first home buyers to enter the property marketplace easier and faster. The portal has processed several offers, with a few acceptance already.
The government's First Home Loan Deposit Scheme supports up to 10,000 loans each financial year allowing buyers to purchase their first home with a deposit of 5 per cent.
With Swooper’s cashback policy, buyers can potentially get the property with a deposit of as little as 2 per cent to 3 per cent.
“The government’s initiative helps Australians get into their first home sooner, and Swooper is proud to be supporting the initiative and supporting eligible clients with their home purchase,” Swooper general manager Lesley Gregg said.
“Swooper distinguishes itself from the rest of the field in the level of attention we give our buyers to help them find their perfect property,” Gregg said.
“We negotiate with top developers to give buyers the best deals in the market.”
Swooper chief executive officer Alan Lung said that Swooper functions as an end-to-end servicing portal.
“All the online enquires are accompany with offline property advisors to working at buyer’s best interests to guide them every step of the way in the overall buying process and afterwards.
We are doing what we can to democratise real estate, making it accessible for everyone. We want to give first home buyers a boost to get into the market and inspire investors to deepen their portfolios.”
By using Swooper.com.au to do the house-hunting legwork on their own, some property buyers significantly saved the deposit.
“I'm lucky that I've purchased my new apartment through Swooper,” Swooper client Simon Tiongson said.
I found all the information I need from the website, and Swooper's property advisor provided superb back-and-forth support to ensure I got the most benefit from the deal.
I have saved around 10 per cent of my deposit due to their cashback promotion.”
Swooper wants to strengthen market confidence by providing buyers with more benefits, intelligence, simplicity and empowerment in helping them find the perfect property. There is no charge for the service.
“Different from traditional portals, which are advertising-centred platforms, the core value of Swooper is to provide value for buyers,” Gregg said.
“The search engine prioritises listings based on buyer’s preference to smooth their buying journey and find the most suitable project in an easy way.
Swooper has been committed from the start to empowering buyers with information previously limited to agents, such as the most updated price of each property respectively, and we believe that technology can provide property buyers with more transparent information, more choices, and lower transaction costs.”
After its Australian launch, Swooper plans to expand globally in the future.
