As the most progressive newspaper in this country we have great pleasure in launching ‘Post Property’ – our new weekly property section. At last, a comprehensive central point for all news relating to the buying and selling of property, trends and analysis in real estate and the latest in building, design and décor.
Ideologically we have underpinned it by advocating transparency in the real estate business and we hold firm in our desire to protect the interests of our readers first and foremost.
For too long the cowboy image in real estate has helped feather the nests of shady and crooked real estate players. The ‘little man and his family’ seldom had rights and the industry had no vehicle in which to see bad practice exposed.
Post Property’s special 36 page expose on the sector kick starts the weekly liftout to appear every Thursday as a dual language product complemented by a comprehensive internet presence through www.post-property.com.
It is our intention for the site to become the national real estate portal.
We’ve invested in this project precisely to cater to a fast maturing business sector and it is our hope that it will become a ‘must read’ for Khmer and foreign readers alike. We’ll also form relationships with regional property publishers so that the message of Cambodian property spreads far and wide.
As the real estate market enters into an upward cycle the emergence of Post Property is timely. In this fast paced world having quality information at your fingertips is essential to stay ahead.
Post Property has its own dedicated team, led by two editors with extensive exposure to real estate – Liam Barnes and Soeun Say.
And as a full service publisher we give economies of scale that others cannot and are motivated to provide cost effective, productive solutions for our advertisers.
Part of that commitment is making ourselves available at all time to our advertisers, from the publisher and CEO, down to the editors, reporters, sales executive, we are determined to understand fully the business that is real estate.
Post Property is set to become a powerful mouthpiece for the sector, where agents, developers and others have a strong voice of influence, sometimes a unified voice to pressure decision makers.
Our independence also is sorely needed. Some agents produce amateurish magazines and other literature which lack credibility and little accountability. These products lack professionalism and quality. From the public’s perspective the result is a bewildering array of promotional material.
At The Phnom Penh Post we’ve committed our considerable resource into creating an international quality stand-alone property section.
We urge all to support the product. It helps sustain and grow the sector and it will have no hesitation to expose corruption and bad practice. It will encourage creativity and efficiency and praise those who can contribute in a worthwhile way.
Please enjoy Post Property!
