As the region’s market leaders we consider it our responsibility to consistently enhance and simplify the property search experience in the UAE by utilising the latest technology to bring coherence to the entire search journey. During this time, when operating virtually has become a necessity, Bayut has stayed ahead of the curve by proactively introducing innovative PropTech solutions that allow you to browse and analyse properties in the UAE using a variety of virtual solutions, without stepping out of your home. With Bayut, virtual property search in the UAE is no longer something of the future, but a reality that can help you in these challenging times. Here’s how you can use our innovative PropTech solutions, to find your home, from your home.
Most home buyers and tenants in the UAE or anywhere else in the world, go through multiple steps before finalising on their future home. This journey typically starts with the ‘discovery’ stage, following which potential consumers go through an active research process where they establish contact with the relevant agent or agency before the entire experience is completed with the decision making and closing stage. We will now highlight how Bayut’s innovative technology solutions are powering this user journey with virtual solutions at every step in this cycle.
PROPTECH SOLUTIONS ON BAYUT TO FIND YOUR HOME FROM YOUR HOME
PropTech is changing the way the real estate industry functions, by bringing more cadence to the multiple aspects of the consumer and agent journey, and tying it all together. Here are some of the game-changing PropTech features on Bayut using which you can conduct a virtual search for properties to find your future, dream home from the comfort of your existing home.
THE BAYUT.COM WEBSITE
The virtual property search experience begins right at the core of our business – the Bayut.com website, which has a database of over thousands of properties for sale and rent across the UAE.
Users can explore all the listed properties on our website, right at their fingertips by using the intuitive search console. Just enter the desired location, property type and other preferences and hit search. You’ll be instantly presented with a list of all the available properties in your area of interest, which is updated in real-time when you add more filters to your search. Our website is the fastest property portal in the world, so you can expect these results to show up instantly without any inconvenient delays.
Bayut’s property listings also feature sophisticated summaries of all the details a potential customer might be interested in, including the price, area, features and amenities, as well as locations nearby. The listings page also features photographs, videos and other visual aids to help you get a better perspective on the properties.
But we know displaying a list of properties isn’t enough for a user to make an informed decision when searching for their dream home. This is why we have integrated the following features based on extensive research on consumer requirements, to revolutionise and transform the way property search is conducted in the region.
When you are looking for your dream home, the location of the property is one of the most important driving factors. School, work, entertainment and other necessities have to be nearby. But how do you know if a property is in the right location or not, with access to all the amenities you are looking for?
This is where Bayut’s interactive Map View solution comes into play. With Map View, home seekers can easily visualise the exact location of a prospective property using an interactive map. This helps you get an accurate idea of what’s nearby and even compare the location of different properties in the area and discover the perfect home that matches your requirements.
Along with providing all the details of the property, Bayut has gone an extra mile to provide something that doesn’t exist anywhere else – the ability for a prospective buyer or tenant to know if a property is available in the market in real-time, without having to contact the agent.
A usual bottleneck that property seekers face when searching for their future online, is the lack of clarity about whether the property that is listed is still available on the market. We’ve managed to completely eliminate this pain point with TruCheck™.
TruCheck™ is the industry’s first authentication solution for brokers to easily advertise the availability of a property by using BayutPro, our app exclusively for Brokers. Listings which feature this badge undergo extensive quality checks by the Bayut team. In order for the TruCheck™ badge to appear on a listing, the agent has to physically visit the property, take a picture using the BayutPro app and submit it for approval. Only after the images are approved does the listing get the TruCheck ™ badge for a limited time.
Using Map View and TruCheck ™, we have brought a greater degree of coherence to the ‘discovery’ stage in the property search experience. But how does someone decide if the layout of the property is what they want? Several people will say that it is impossible to decide on a property without actually seeing it. But what’s impossible for many, has been transformed into a reality on Bayut.
2D AND 3D FLOOR PLANS
Knowing the layout of a property is one of the most important factors when deciding on a new home. Without a visual guide, it can be challenging to ascertain which properties meet your requirements. At this stage, many consumers would say visiting the property is the only way to do it. But again, we have a solution that uses technology-driven visualisations that add a digital layer to the experience.
Bayut has over 45,000, standardised 2D and 3D floor plans for UAE properties to empower the user to make informed decisions anywhere, anytime. With our comprehensive floor plans property seekers can get a birds-eye view of the property to understand the scale and positioning of the rooms, without having to visit the property.
But our need to innovate doesn’t stop there. Along with the 2D and 3D floor plans on Bayut, users will soon have access to three-dimensional visual maps of these floor plans, using which they can get an accurate idea about the configuration of the property. Stay tuned to find out when this immersive and interactive 3D live view will be available on Bayut.
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN PROPTECH WITH THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Bayut is committed to bringing as much of the property search experience to your fingertips as possible, so as to circumvent any challenges associated with social distancing guidelines, currently being followed in the country. We have created two specially curated property tour segments that help property seekers gain a deeper understanding of their prospective homes virtually. These features will soon be accessible on the relevant properties on Bayut’s website.
- House Of The Week – This is a spectacular video tour of the most stunning and unique properties in the UAE, published on our YouTube and social media channels. Using this visual tour, potential buyers can get a complete view of the property before even visiting it!
- Facebook Live – Yet another exclusive segment, using live Facebook sessions, we walk-through some of the available properties on Bayut, to help potential renters and buyers tour the property from the comfort of their home. Since the live video is hosted along with the agent of the property, viewers get a chance to easily engage with them and ask any questions they may have.
Along with all these amazing PropTech solutions, Bayut also offers its users a rich repository of content resources to help users make informed decisions when searching for a home. This includes the MyBayut blog, which is the leading and most successful real estate blog in the region that provides detailed insights and useful information about navigating life in the UAE. Along with the MyBayut blog, we also have content-rich resources like the Area Guides and Building Guides to help end-users make well-informed decisions about the properties they choose to move into. We have also recently launched School Guides which helps parents source detailed information pertaining to the schools in the UAE.
Bayut is paving the way to completely transform the UAE real estate market with creative, PropTech solutions that simplify the consumer journey.
All these features mentioned here are available on both the desktop and mobile versions of Bayut. So if you want to conduct a virtual property search from your home, Bayut is one of the most useful real estate apps to have on your phone. But before you consider homes for renting in Dubai, know tenant rights so you can build a healthy relationship with your landlord.
