It puts forward the concept of everyone is a free agent, let users to help users solve the problem, this means that every user has a demand can be a broker, for other users looking for a room with demand. As to how to arouse the enthusiasm of free agent, first of all, this is a need for strong but not the working process of the complex of the service sector, according to the survey, the entire rental period can complete one or two days, it has turned into natural free career potential. But it takes time to become a free agent is the ordinary people, the idea will not happen immediately, so at present the free agent on the platform mainly is part of the agent in the intermediary company, and have had experience of agent, this is one of the first training beans than with free agent.

as a result, for agent, no longer subject to broker, without the restrictions of regional, single volume, seniority, only need to focus on improving service quality. For users, pekah the bean’s agent service pricing is between 300-500, and the commission in Beijing is usually a month’s rent, it will be cheaper than traditional intermediary costs, low prices for the impact of the tenant is very big. Bean pekah’s goal is to let the price to a minimum by means of market competition, the commission is decided by the standard to the market. In addition, credit system will form a competitive urge agent locked well, take the initiative to improve housing quality.
