About Propseller

Propseller is the “Modern Real Estate Agency that Stands by You”. Our mission is to help our clients achieve the most when making one of the biggest financial decisions of their life: selling, buying, or renting real estate. We do that by offering them the state-of-the-art real estate agent service of the 21st century: highly valuable, completely transparent, and fairly priced. A service that will, hopefully, make them love real estate agents (again).

At Propseller, we are building the first technology-powered real estate brokerage in South-East Asia. We elevate the most human part of the service with top agents you can trust. Then, we industrialize all the rest with technology and centralized operations. By rethinking the way properties are transacted, keeping what works, and changing what doesn’t, we are able to deliver more while charging less. In Singapore, where we currently operate, that means we sell homes 2 times faster for only 1% commission (vs. 2% standard), saving people S$10,000 per transaction on average.

Role Description

As Pricing Intern, you will be involved in one of the most important steps in renting and selling a property in Singapore – coming up with the pricing. Good pricing is a deciding factor for clients to choose whether to work with Propseller and for our chances to rent or sell their properties at the highest price.

Using our own methodology, you will gather information and data from multiple sources, put them in a professional and presentable format, and discuss the pricing with our Inventory Managers. These prices will be relied upon by our Real Estate Consultants and potential clients.

This internship opportunity will provide you with a unique exposure to valuation analyses and prices of various types of residential properties in Singapore.

  • Collect relevant property information and data from various sources and ensure data accuracy in our valuation reports

  • Work closely with the Inventory Manager to analyze large amounts of data and multiple factors to arrive at property prices for various types of residential properties in Singapore
  • Actively propose and implement new processes to improve workflow efficiency

Requirements
  • Student currently enrolled in 1st to 5th year of university study
  • Fluent written and spoken English
  • Proficient in Google Suite (particularly Google Sheets and Google Slides) and with computers in general
  • Organized and able to multi-task: you are skilled at managing your time, priorities, and tasks and getting things done fast, even when things can be chaotic
  • Analytical mind: you are not fazed by working with a large amount of data and considering many other various factors at a single point in time
  • Fast and accurate worker: you have meticulous attention to detail and know-how to review your work to produce quality and deliver fast
  • Can-do attitude problem solver: you are a roll-up-your-sleeves doer where you see a problem, arrive at a solution quickly, and know what it takes to get things done
  • Able to commit either full-time or part-time: full-time working hours will be Monday to Friday (9 am to 7 pm) while part-time working hours will be at least two to three weekdays in a week (9 am to 7 pm)
