At present, more than two million people visit iProperty.com.my each month. This number will no doubt increase in the months ahead with the website sporting these new enticing and extremely useful features.
#1 You can now search in Bahasa Malaysia
Visitors to the website now have the option to toggle between EN and BM –displayed in the upper right-hand corner of the landing page – to access their preferred language. Every section of the website is not only available in Bahasa Malaysia but also boasts exclusive content and features, which can be found under the Berita & Gaya Hidup (News & Lifestyle) tab.
The Bahasa Malaysia version also features the latest version of LoanCare and will also allow users to play around with the features to refine their search to include preferred state, type of property, minimum and maximum price, square foot of space as well as the number of bedrooms.
#2 Instant Home Eligibility Report from up to 17 banks
Want to know if you can afford the property of your dreams? Well the newest version of Loancare, iProperty.com.my’s Home Loan Eligibility Indicator will surely help you out. Introduced in April 2019, the free and simple online tool allows consumers to compare and calculate their home loan eligibility instantly across 17 banks.
Loancare users will also be able to get a personalised home loan eligibility report by just providing their email address. The report will display the list of banks and the corresponding rating ranging from Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor or Not eligible. This will provide consumers with an indication of the property price points that they will be able to afford and also the home loan they are able to qualify for.
#3 Point-of-Interest search
You may have found the home of your dreams but is it in the right neighbourhood? This is where the customised Point-of-Interest feature comes in. Besides location, property type and price, liveability is another important factor for most property seekers.
The customised Point-of-Interest is integrated to the maps of the property you are viewing, thus helping you make a better decision in terms of how convenient it is for you to access your favourite/frequently-visited places (Your Places) such as your office, child’s school and favourite mall.
#4 Streamlined search options
Accessing the extensive list of quality Malaysian property listings on iProperty.com.my is now made simpler and faster with the Similar Properties listing feature. A prospective property viewed will show Similar Properties listed by location, property type and built-up-size as well as the listing price. For added convenience, Recent Searches allow users to quickly get back to where they left off. Their last location search will be displayed in the search field the next time they access iProperty.com.my.
#5 Enhanced data for smarter decision making
Information such as transacted history will now be displayed on iProperty.com.my’s sale listing pages allowing consumers to make more informed decisions when buying a piece of property. Up to 10 property transactions from Brickz.my such as property description, date sold, price sold and built up size will be on display. The historical data from Brickz.my is supplied by the Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH). Buyers will also find the Capital Growth and Estimated Rental Yield information available to help them in their decision making.
