The leading Chinese real estate agency 5i5j Group has formed a partnership with Haier Financial Holdings for long-term rental business on Monday.
Kunming Sinobright Group Co, the parent company of 5i5j Group, has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Haier, one of the country's leading home appliance manufacturers, marking the latest move in the country's heated long-term rental market.
In the future, the two sides will work together on the sales and rentals of smart home applicants and financial services related to the long-term rentals. They also aimed to develop an operation system to combine smart home applicants within the apartment.
This collaboration is aimed at providing a better experience to tenants in the era of the internet of things.
