Online property search portal 99.co has officially launched an expansion of its services into the residential sales segment and new investments totaling S$2.7 million to date.

“When I was trying to find a home for myself here in Singapore a few years ago, 99.co didn’t exist and I naturally explored all web and mobile tools available, and I was nothing short of disappointed. Were the listings real and available? Was the pricing data and other details accurate? Why so many duplicates?  It was a high-friction and time consumer experience that had to change,” says investor and user Eduardo Saverin.

The portal aims to “create the most trusted and authentic way for users to find a home they’ll love”.

99.co prioritises the end consumer experience first, promising unbiased search results, personalised to the query of the end user and sorted by the quality of the listing data versus by the promotional spend of the agents.

Since its soft-launch in November last year, 99co has introduced two mobile apps and ListRank, an algorithm that provides users the best and most relevant search results, and in the process doubled its web traffic.

In the same period, the company says its competitors such as PropertyGuru and iProperty have seen a decrease of web traffic between 10 and 20 percent.
