By Digital News Asia August 8, 2023
- Kucing takes no commission on any property transaction
- Founded by Mathieu Goarant and Guillaume Garagnon
Kucing announced yesterday, the launch of its agent-free, peer-to-peer (P2P) dedicated residential property platform. The Singapore-based proptech company claims the platform as the first in Singapore.
Kucing is founded by serial entrepreneurs Mathieu Goarant and Guillaume Garagnon, who have over 20 years of business experience in Asia, including in conveyancing and renting.
“Kucing reflects the increasing ‘Uberisation’ of everyday life where users take power back into their hands. From market research to striking a deal, Kucing is designed as a trustworthy digital solution that empowers them in their property journey,” said Goarant (pic).
Catering to homeowners and home seekers of condos, HDB flats, and landed properties. Kucing promises interactive augmented heat maps showing the latest neighbourhood property transaction prices, market trends, 3D maps for better visualisation, home tours in-app booking, and user security through Singpass verification.
It also offers access to digital tools usually reserved for property agents and industry professionals.
“Kucing is an easy-to-use platform with an exceptional interface that delivers an unmatched user experience. Kucing makes it easier and more affordable for property enthusiasts to interact and achieve their real estate goals in today’s challenging economy,” said Garagnon (pic).
Users have all the digital tools to analyse the market, view multiple properties or buyers’ requests, and find one that suits them.
Once users have agreed on a price and decided to proceed with a transaction, Kucing can either refer several curated lawyers to help with the paperwork or else parties can opt to use their preferred law firm. The legal aspect is then conducted off-app right through to completion with no involvement by property agents.
The Kuching app is free to use. With a US$85.60 (SG$115) subscription, the paid version unlocks the number of listings, photos, video uploads, visits, bids, and chats. Aside from this monthly plan, Kucing takes no commission on any property transaction.
Kucing is currently self-funded by the two founders. More will be announced once Kucing is at seed/series A stage.
