Our Impact

The real estate transaction has not evolved in line with the ecosystem around it. Property transactions are stuck in the past - slow and inefficient, lacking transparency, and with multiple pain-points for buyers and sellers. At BidX1, we use technology to enhance the experience of buying and selling property.

Transparency

Transparency is at the heart of our business model. We provide investors with all the information upfront, and our platform provides end-to-end visibility of the sale process.

Efficiency

We have revolutionised the traditional property sale process – removing the inefficiencies that frustrate buyers and sellers, dramatically speeding up transactions and enhancing user experience across the board.

Reach

Investment opportunities across multiple markets – and fully online transactions – attract an international audience. With a database of over 150,000 active investors and bidders from 60+ countries to date, our platform ensures global reach.

Expertise

Our innovation has always been backed by specialist real estate expertise. We have combined this with best-in-class digital expertise spanning software development, data analytics, e-commerce, UX design, digital marketing and online payments.

Data

The BidX1 platform is a data powerhouse, allowing us to track supply-demand dynamics in real-time, measure liquidity in the market and mine data from thousands of transactions. Unmatched market intelligence drives our success.
