On September 16, Tmall and E-House announced a strategic cooperation and jointly launched the “Tmall Haofang” platform.
This is the first big move after Ali increased its capital holdings of Yiju at the end of July this year. At that time, the two parties announced that they would set up a platform with an initial investment of 5 billion yuan, with Alibaba accounting for 85% of the shares and E-House accounting for 15%. This is considered by the industry to be an important competitor for Lianjia and Tencent behind it.
According to official information, in the future, more technical capabilities will be used in the customized real estate flagship store of Tmall Haofang. For example, the combination of 3D buying technology and real estate can integrate real data such as the view of the house’s window, noise and lighting, etc., to make the online viewing experience more real.
In addition, Tmall and E-House also released the “Real Estate Transaction Cooperation Mechanism” (ETC). Based on new product upgrades, the mechanism will provide four transaction scenarios for new houses, second-hand houses, special houses and auction houses, and carry multiple service functions in the online real estate transaction process.

In fact, Ali has been involved in the digitalization of the real estate industry.
In February of this year, more than 500 real estate and 5,000 real estate consultants used Taobao to broadcast live “Cloud Selling Houses”, attracting nearly 2 million people to watch. At that time, there was a house seller who said after his experience: In the past, it was a good result to receive one or two groups of buyers every day at the offline sales office; but through online house sales, dozens of people added his friends after a live broadcast. , To learn more about buying a house, the efficiency is greatly increased.
Starting from late May, more than 10,000 special rooms with a 50% to 80% discount have been launched on Tmall 618 across the country.
