ZipMatch, a Manila-based and IdeaSpace-funded startup, simplifies the mess that property hunters and brokers go through.

The Problem

1. For property hunters, finding the right home is a long and tiring process.
2. For brokers, finding sure clients is also a long and tiring process.

The Solution

“At ZipMatch, we make the experience of finding a property like that of online dating. We make it easy to match the needs of our clients with the right properties available. We are a property matchmaker,” said ZipMatch co-founder Chow Paredes said at a recent press briefing.

Founded in April 2013, ZipMatch goes through all that trouble so that a buyer can find a home that fits his needs and a seller can find an interested buyer.
