Brief history of Zimobi, until now…

Anyone who knows us and accompanies us knows of our commitment to try to change the scenario of the real estate market in Brazil. For this reason, we have always aimed to facilitate the routine of those who rent and manage properties without intermediaries.

Our biggest difference is the use of technology to ensure that property owners rent their properties more quickly and securely. In a simple way, the data is entered into the system. There, the platform performs all the bureaucratic processes to help landlords have financial savings and more time for what really matters in their lives.

Who is Zimobi, a real estate rental disintermediation startup?

The Zimobi has innovated the way to rent and manage real estate, having great potential in the real estate market. This is the first and only Brazilian platform that has the mission of helping owners and tenants to negotiate the lease of their properties without intermediaries.

All of this is done with ample professionalism. Some of Zimobi’s goals are:

  • Facilitate online rental and the availability of the necessary tools;
  • Eliminate the traditional bureaucracy in the real estate industry;
  • Have autonomous management and direct communication between landlords and tenants;
  • Offer ease, tranquility and security in property management.

What does Zimobi bring to the real estate market?

One of Zimobi’s biggest differentials is the advantage of renting without real estate. Inspired by peer-to-peer companies, the platform brings a disruptive proposal to this market.

The traditional forms of rent – through real estate agents, brokers and intermediaries – are replaced by a simple, safe and agile system that takes care of the complete journey.

Through the startup, property owners have several resources. It’s possible:

  • Advertise properties on various real estate websites and portals;
  • Evaluate the history of those interested in the property and perform the credit analysis, criminal history and other information;
  • Issue the lease agreement to ensure legal certainty for the agreements;
  • Manage the collection and receipt of rentals automatically.

All of this brings more agility and ease to the real estate rental processes – both for tenants and for landlords.

With the absence of third parties and, at the same time, the provision of rental tools, the entire procedure is less bureaucratic, breaking with conventional models.

With a potential for high scalability and growth in the market, Zimobi is favorably viewed by the startup ecosystem. Google for Startups and MitHub, for example, are believing in the platform and helping to get this idea off the ground.

Which acceleration programs is Zimobi part of?

Currently, Zimobi is participating in three acceleration programs: Startup Zone, from Google, Inovativa Brasil, from the Federal Government and MitHub Mentoring, one of the most competitive that exists today – sponsored by the big names in the market, such as VivaReal, ZapImóveis, OLX, BrasilBrokers and Cyrela.

Better understand how each one of them works!
