The technology it is increasingly part of people’s daily lives, to the extent that they can facilitate many processes that are complicated today, such as the administration of a property property in order to make expenses transparent to tenants of a housing development.
In an interview, Mauricio Lamas, founder of the platform KiperfyThe property management market, where there are solutions and services for real estate management, currently has broad potential, because although there are companies dedicated to this segment, it still does not have the desired penetration, especially in countries like Mexico.
“Many owners within a subdivision or a tower pay a maintenance fee and it is a small fee, but that small fee is multiplied by all the tenants, so in the long run it is a large amount of flow, but it can be misused. “Lamas explained.
In this context, Lamas pointed out that he took on the task of developing software that could help anyone in the administration of a property, in order to make costs transparent, which has been successful not only in small condominiums, but in other type of instruments such as real estate trusts (Fibers).
“We design the software and the solution for common people, this is proptech (technology applied to the real estate segment) in the most basic part, which can be used by anyone, of any age, expert or non-expert in technology,” said Lamas. .
According to the founder of Kiperfy, the program can serve three lines of business, the Fibras, the large developers and the managers who operate the properties. “We provide services in more than 33 cities, we have around 100,000 users and we have projects international companies in Guatemala, Peru, Costa Rica, we are in version 5.0 of the program and it has been a growth of a lot of work, a lot of sweat and a long time and we are convinced that it is the solution in the market ”, Lamas explained.
According to a report published by the firm MarketsandMarkets, the market for property management through solutions and services, has a value outlook of $ 22 billion by 2023, with an average annual growth rate of 8.8% since 2018.
This market, according to the firm, is made up of real estate management and leasing accounting solutions, asset maintenance management and reserve management.
“The main drivers of the property management market include a growing demand for the SaaS model (Software as a Service) and an increase in real estate and smart construction projects ”, you can read in the firm’s report on the matter.
Lamas indicated that although there are other solutions in the market similar to Kiperfy, the opportunity is wide given the low penetration that technology has in the real estate world. “We are going over 100,000 users and they can operate thousands of properties, we have developers of all levels,” he said.
