IN an age where technology is applied in practically every industry, prompting the coining of words like fintech (financial technology) and proptech (property technology), iProperty Group has emerged as a strong advocate of the application of digital tools in the real estate industry.

And with household broadband penetration of over 82%, it makes sense for the group to shift its business focus in Malaysia to emphasise on digital technology.

“Digital is at the heart of the revolution we see in the marketplace, and Malaysia is doing great work at building a digital marketplace,” says REA Group-Asia CEO of Singapore and Malaysia Haresh Khoobchandani.

iProperty is no stranger when it comes to digital technology, being the owner of several property portals across Asia.
