I am currently looking for a flat to rent in Paris and it’s not as easy as I was expecting, as a Parisian. I am looking for a super precise area and with someone who has a high level of minimum requirements.
That’s why a Facebook post presenting a new real estate solution in Paris catched all my attention. OMMi, is a freemium BtoC and BtoB solution for people looking for a property or for those who have one available. On the website, it is possible to do a pretty accurate search by choosing your minimum/maximum requirements regarding size, prices, types of properties… and by doing a geographical search associated with the subway, the district, or even by drawing the area you want to live in.
It makes also all the paperwork much easier for both parts since you have to do an online registration with the usually required documents just once and you can start searching and applying to offers. It also aims at making the processes easier and much quicker: less steps, more accuracy, less risks, less visits.
The young startup was recently launched by Laura Aknin, Adrien Aymerich and Dov Haddad and relies on a freemium business model with three different offers: free, 9 euros for 3 months, 19 euros for 3 months.
I personally find the UX, design and features really nice and user friendly. Some features can still be optimized but it is just the beginning of this promising website whose creation was bootstrapped until now, since they did not raise money and it is still not in their short-term agenda. Moreover, they already are very active on social media so you can follow them on Facebook or Twitter and they have a super funny video explaining their services:
