BProperty introduces property vetting services

12 Feb 2019

Bangladeshi property site BProperty has introduced rental property vetting services to improve its intermediary role as the country’s No. 1 real estate vertical.

The company’s in-house team of legal experts will now check all rental properties for preliminary requirements and documentation before they are listed. The site also guides landlords through the listing process, helping them improve their property’s appeal.

The site has already launched a number of complimentary services. These include deal negotiation, client verification, bank-assisted payments, property alerts, and housing products. The vertical currently lists around 11,400 properties for sale and 127,000 properties for rent.

It was launched by Emerging Markets Property Group in 2016. The group also owns and operates Zameen.com in Pakistan, Bayut.com in the UAE and Mubawab in Morocco.  BProperty bought Lamudi.com.bd in January.

Emerging Markets Property Group closed a Series D investment round worth $100 million U.S. last week.

BProperty faces competition from PBazaar.com and horizontal Bikroy.com‘s property vertical.
