Compiling more than 300 thousand classified ads displayed on 15 sites
Marsya Nabila - 20 April 2020
The decision to buy property, is not an instant process. It requires careful calculations, including the right locations. There are various classified ad sites in Indonesia with various offers given by sellers. Checking the sites one by one might not be very effective. LacakHarga intends to overcome this issue.
This site collects lists of property classified ads, as well as vehicles from various sites such as Rumah123, Carmudi, OLX, and so on. When a user selects one of the advertisements, LacakHarga will redirect to the classified ad site used by the seller. Furthermore, the user can continue the negotiation process later.
In addition to simplifying search, LacakHarga also adds various filter options to help narrow down search results, according to user needs. In total, Track Price included 15 classified ad sites in its database.
"Currently, it's yet to monetize, however, we do not rule out the possibility to develop these features in the future," Creative Director of Andrastudio Andra Yogi told DailySocial, Friday (17/4).
He explained that the current LacakHarga's visitors have not been able to submit their own listings to LacakHarga. It is duo to possibility of double listing by the seller, before entering the database, LacakHarga team will do a certain examination to minimize this possibility.
LacakHarga is said to collect more than 300 thousand ads listing property and vehicles on its site. The number is predicted to continue to grow every day.
Yogi said LacakHarga will be working more seriously in the future to provide benefits for its users. For example, optimizing loading speed, especially in search pages, therefore, users can have faster results.
"Our team will continue to add new features to the LacakHarga website to further benefit property seekers and vehicles."
LacakHarga is one of the internal projects developed by a client-based project called "andrastudio". The internal team did the whole developing process to product-market fit aside from their main jobs. LacakHarga still uses its own funds for its operations.
"Ours is still a small team, only consists of me as the owner and project manager. Also, there are three members to support me."
LacakHarga is a website only accessible via desktop and mobile. Application is yet to available.
