BigBenta.com has dominated the online marketplace in the Philippines for quite sometime now. As an internet software and platform provider, they have been known in three main areas of e-commerce including classified ads, online retail store, and as a venue for online service bookings – this is known as the BigBenta Marketplace.
Continuing in their innovation using the online platform, they have recently launched BigBenta Prime, the online real estate brokerage arm of BigBenta.
Held at the Ridgewood Towers in C-5 at the Bonifacio Global City last March 29, 2017, business and industry leaders, members of the media, and bloggers, stood witness to this milestone in the Philippine real estate industry.
This development means that would-be real estate buyers can now shop for their dream house and property at the convenience of their homes. But beyond just providing information and serving as a hub for customer inquiry, BigBenta Prime aims to facilitate the complete cycle of the buying transaction.
In specifics, what makes BigBenta Prime different from other real-estate websites are the following features:
- Detailed information of the property
- Detailed information of their partner developers.
- a 360 degree detailed view of the property
- a 360 degree view of recreational facilities, points of interests, nearby establishments and other vital institutions including schools, churches, banks, police stations.
- Flood Mapping and Competition Properties.
- Complete Pricing Breakdown
- Actual Calculations per Unit Property
- Comparative prices (for sale and for rent) of competition within 2 kilometers from the property site
- Estimated Association Fees and Miscellaneous Fees.
- Listing of Construction Methodologies used and lists of material in finishing the property unit
- Chat Support Feature – where you can share real property information and experiences with other buyers and would-be buyers
Yes, from viewing the property, to knowing the places of interests nearby, to inquiries, to buying the specific property, reservation, financing and even payment!
“BigBenta Prime will make buying your dream properties and developments easier by getting validated information first hand just by logging into the BigBenta Prime website. BigBenta Prime will assist you all the way, even before traditional persistent sales representatives get to you and offer you all properties that may not be suitable to your needs or preference.” shares Charlie Fong, BigBenta CEO and Founder.
BigBenta Prime vs. Traditonal Real Estate Selling
In the past, traditional real estate transactions focus on just the property itself. Now, BigBenta Prime can give buyers the 360 degree view of the area, nearby establishments and places of interest (nearby schools, churches, banks, police stations etc), flood hazard mapping and competition properties to help you make that “one great informed decision”.
Furthermore, BigBenta Prime can assist buyers through its Online Reservation Fee Payment, Loan Calculation, Special Services to expedite loan processing in designated banks, and Buyer Document Uploading to support bank loans and document archives that buyers can download so they can confidently verify the authenticity of all the information.
For the developers and property seller, BigBenta Prime aims to help by providing an online platform to make property offerings to the buying public easier, convenient and cost efficient.
One of its welcome recent development is their partnership with ServeQuest Group, a real estate developer. They in turn, are expecting hastened and increased sales plus a widened customer base of its properties through the new BigBenta Prime Platform. ServeQuest Group properties include Monte Carlo Residences and Ridgewood Towers Premier, the venue where the launch was held.
For BigBenta individual partners with an entrepreneurial mindset, BigBenta has started setting guidelines for the Ka-Benta Program – BigBenta’s Social Referral Program. More details about this on a separate article in the near future.
With OFWs as one of the target market, BigBenta Prime believes the website and features can help them a lot since they are the ones who are usually away from home and are not available to physically check the properties.
“I was an OFW myself. I want to make sure that my hard-earned money does not go to waste, especially if it means realizing a dream home for the family. Now, BigBenta can help OFW’s search, view and decide for their property investment while they’re away just by logging into the BigBenta Prime Website”, adds Fong.
The entire service portfolio of BigBenta is currently on Android and they plan to further improve on iOS as well. Moreover, as a security, they implement an authentication and verification (A&V) process to all its store owners and service providers on an annual basis through their customer support. This is a counter strike measure to avoid scams and all forms of deception of some real property agents.
BigBenta Prime aims to complete the Four Pillars of the future of Online Trading and Commerce as it solidifies its claim as the #1 Online Marketplace in the Philippines.
