Finding homes on the go!

PropertyGuru Lens

Our reliance on our smartphones and devices is increasing daily. New applications are built to improve services whether that is shopping for groceries, carrying out banking, listening to music or booking the next holiday.

Long gone are the days that a mobile phone is to make a telephone call, now new technologies aim at enhancing and improving existing processes, making it as easy as possible for the user.

Homeseekers looking for somewhere new to live often eye up new places having visited the location in person. Since many people want to live close to where they work or socialise, it is likely that they will already been familiar with the area and if not, they will take time to visit to scope it out, get their bearings and sniff out the perfect home.

With this in mind PropertyGuru’s latest innovative feature, PropertyGuru Lens has turned home searching on its head. This clever technological advance combines augmented reality, geolocational data and artificial intelligence to allow users to take a photo of a building with their smartphone and to instantly receive information such as available units, prices and agents who are marketing in the building. A genius invention to find homes on the go.

Using visuals alone has increased in popularity, such as social networking like Instagram that relies purely on images or the ability to take a photograph of the barcode of a replacement item for your weekly food shop that will automatically be added to your basket.

PropertyGuru Lens is no different and this advancement will streamline house hunting. Providing a more efficient means to receive real-time information will also speed up the time it takes to find a property; good news for renters, buyers, sellers, landlords and agents alike.

House hunters will be able to quickly compile a shortlist of possible buildings by disregarding any unsuitable properties that do not fit their criteria without having to view in person.

This visual search solution is leading the way for Southeast Asia being the first of its kind. The technology is being trialled before it is rolled out, but when it does this much needed tool is going to step house hunting up a few gears.
