If there are habits that are inherently Kenyan, then our obsession with owning huge chunks of land and property come at the very top. For this reason, there are several real estate and land buying/selling companies that have leveraged this need by offering platforms for people to jump as few hurdles as possible in securing land for personal use or development purposes. One of these agencies is Property Reality Company (PRC) that has elevated land buying a step up from competitors with its brand new app christened Mploti, which does not deviate from Kenya’s app-naming formula that adores the m- prefix.
The app is the first of its kind in East Africa and promises to offer innovative solutions to how people purchase land. Ideally, the application intends to make land-buying a seamless experience sans middlemen and other third party participants that have been known to unnecessarily complicate this process. Any Kenyan who happens to own a cellular handheld will be able to use the SMS-based platform to purchase and own property, which comes with flexible payment plans using PCR’s ecommerce technology.
The app is packed with the following features:
- Full description of property
- Location of property
- Google coordinates of property
- Map for buyers to select preferred plot(s)
- Price of property
It is obvious that the app will kill several birds with one lone stone as it will not discriminate against buyers in a country where land buying is mistakenly taken as a middle and upper class activity. Ordinary members of the society, as well as youths have always been left out, but Mploti promises to bridge this gap.
“Traditionally, land buying has been viewed as a complicated and rigid activity. Mploti is changing this by allowing Kenyans to own land by paying as little as Ksh500 a day,” remarked the Chairman Mr. Gacari.
Other than the stated features, PRC promises that it will add more futures in a future update.
“In the near future Mploti will also link customers to financiers to access mobile loans to purchase the property of their choice,” adds the Chairman.
Any person who is above 18 years of age with a phone can get access to the platform. All you need to do is text Mploti to 33300, and reply with 1 to register. Afterward, you will be prompted to enter your full name and ID number to complete registration. Then, you can reply with 1 see properties on offer, select one that suits your lifestyle. Payment plans are shown here, and upon confirming your choice, you will receive a text confirmation on the plot allocation. The end.
