A partnership built to last
Khmer Times has formed a partnership with real estate website Realestate.com to bring our readers the most up-to-date and informed news in Cambodia’s property sector.
Realestate.com.kh was established in 2009 and is the leading website for property buyers and sellers in Cambodia.
Their website lets users search for properties online based on location (sangkat and khan), property type and price range. People interested in buying or renting can see photos, special features, floor plans, video walkthroughs, property locations, 360-degree tours and all other necessary information they need before physically visiting a property. When they are ready to find out more, they can call or email the property seller through the website.
They are not real estate agents and do not collect commissions on sales – they simply connect the buyer and the seller.
Realestate.com.kh also works with a variety of banks, insurance companies, law firms and valuers to offer its users a one-stop property shop. They have more than 45,000 property listings for you to browse through, including more than 300 new development condo, office and borey projects.
People might be surprised by their decision to partner with Khmer Times to co-produce a property liftout in the first place, considering they operate a real estate portal and are forever championing “online” and “digital” as the future of marketing – which it is.
However, Realestate.com.kh’s mission is to provide the public with the most convenient source of real estate listings in Cambodia and to provide clients with the best source of real estate sales and rental leads. And this mission extends beyond the online portal to new technologies and marketing initiatives. A prime example of this is their own magazine: the “Cambodia Real Estate” magazine, which has a print run of 15,000 copies quarterly and is distributed widely across Cambodia.
They know how important it is to market Cambodia and Cambodian real estate overseas, to attract foreign investors, and online is the most effective and the cheapest way to do so. But they also understand that clients want to attract the local market and expats living in Cambodia.
And the reality is, that even though they are experiencing rapid growth in internet penetration in Cambodia, there are still local buyers and renters who are primarily print focused consumers. And if they can provide more value to clients by co-producing a print publication such as Khmer Times’ Property section, they will.
They really do pride themselves on playing a part in educating the Cambodian real estate market, and the partnership with Khmer Times is just another way they can achieve this mission. On top of this, the Realestate.com.kh/news blog is the top ranking online news source for real estate information, news and buyers/sellers advice.
Whilst at one end of the spectrum customers want to relax at Browns while reading Khmer Times, those same customers may decide they are interested in viewing properties in more detail online. By providing both channels, they aim to make that experience as convenient, educative and immersive as possible. In keeping with Realestate.com.kh’s mission, this leads to happier, better-informed customers, higher quality leads and more sales for clients.
The two sides are extremely proud to begin this relationship and look forward to becoming Cambodia’s most respected and comprehensive real estate news source – both online and in print.
