The journey from a business struggling because of Covid 19, to becoming a technology unit that supports real estate businesses and agents in  achieving growth of more than 20% per year. 
  • We started with an understanding of the difficulties and limitations of the traditional rental real estate businesses.
  • The Vietnamese market has over 7.1 million migrants across the country (according to the General Statistics Office 2019 report).
  • Renting is even gradually becoming a trend of young people who prefer to move, diversify investment and accumulation channels, not only accumulate savings to buy houses. In fact, the flow of migrants is still continuously pouring into big cities or typical industrial clusters, such as the proportion of rental households living in Ho Chi Minh City is 32.8%, Bac Ninh is 27%, Binh Duong is 56.5% and Hanoi is 15.8% (according to data from the General Department of Census 2019). 

With such a large proportion, the market is potential but also full of barriers for all stakeholders, including landlords, brokers, real estate agents and even renters.

Barriers for landlords, brokers and business units to enter the market:
  • Marketing and market coverage to reach customers
  • Vacancies filling, revenue maximization
  • Product pricing in line with the market
  • Management of the rental business models and the tenants
Obstacles from tenants:
  • Lack of information on market prices, housing, area,...
  • Wasting a lot of time and effort on finding and renting a house;
  • Lack of utilities, communication tools, contract signing and repairing tools.

From the above pain points, Resident strives to research and develop, bringing AI & Big data technology to apply to the real estate field for all stakeholders, promising to promote the business of all stakeholders, providing young people with a comfortable, fast, easy, efficient and economical life.
