Property & Housing

Cover Story


There are many fantastic job opportunities in big cities like Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Many people from other states want to grab these opportunities, but they often miss out due to overthinking all the logistical issues.

The cost of accommodation in big cities is high. Besides, there are an abundant of scam cases where the housing information on social media platforms is posted by fake owners. When tenants have already paid up a hefty sum of deposits, the fake owners of the apartment go missing. With all the funds already paid to the fake owners, many tenants, especially those fresh grads, ended up struggling more than they have to.

As a property enthusiastic, Kok Hour wanted to improve the house-renting scene in Kuala Lumpur. Therefore, he started Roomz, a complete property rental platform together with his co-founders, He Ping and Trey Chong. He Ping is an experienced web developer and Trey Chong is a veteran marketing guy, both of them have entrepreneurial experiences prior to Roomz.

Roomz is a trusted co-living property management service platform. It aims to help students and young professionals to share a house or rent a room economically and safely. At the beginning stage, they started as a property website that allows reputable agents and house owners to post properties information on the site.

To bring their service to the next level, they launched Property by Roomz. They buy and rent properties located in favourite locations within Klang Valley, renovate them and bundle them with Roomz’ management service. The management service includes utilities, WIFI, and free repairs on inadequate facilities. Tenants do not have to worry about paying an additional fee for this service as everything is already included in the rental price.

Besides, weekly cleaning service is provided! How amazing is it that tenants won’t have to worry too much about who’s turn is it to scrub the toilets? All they need to do is maintain the basic standards of hygiene, and the cleaners will do the rest.

To enhance the staying experiences, Roomz has dedicated and friendly Community Assistants who can assist tenants anytime when they need help. For instance, when tenants have complaints, housemate issues or if anyone loses the key, the Community Assistants will attend to help.

“Looking for a place to stay is usually one of the most daunting things to do when you are uprooting yourself from your comfort zone. New job, new colleagues, new responsibilities, new home, new landlord; there are just so many things to worry. We are here to help you make a smoother transition when it comes to moving,” said Kok Hour.

Kok Hour believes that sharing a flat is not about just finding another body who can split the rent. It’s about finding the right person whom you will enjoy living together. Therefore, the Community Assistants use WhatsApp groups to connect among tenants in the same house. To build a healthy and harmonic relationship among the tenants, Roomz also organises activities from time to time to create meaningful interactions among them.

“We hope that our rooms can provide a sense of belongings to every tenant.”

Roomz has joined ZOM-IN.com to collaborate in efforts to empower aspiring youths. Join us now at www.zom-in.com to participate in exciting events coming soon!
