Housing.co.in a Mumbai based startup has grabbed a good amount of $2.5 million funding from Nexus Venture Partners, the website allows its users to search, find or list properties and unlike to most of the real estate portal like in India where most of the (probably all) portal are simple listing based websites it has unique style of displaying search results and listings.
We have missed publishing anything about this startup on IndianWeb2, it’s different to other portals of its niche and has very smooth, simple and intuitive interface comparing to other real estate portals in India. The portal currently allows its users to search or list properties for major real estate booming cities of India that is – Gurgaon, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and Hyderbad. The startup also provide Housing Android App for mobile and that is also very crisp and intuitive as well.
Users such as property agents or brokers can list their properties once they subscribe to the service for a small fee. Other users can search, find and filter properties both for buying or rentals/lease absolutely free of cost. User can also filter out results based on property size, (number of bedrooms), location and other amenities at property.
In a span of a year the startup has grown quite exponentially as the daily unique visitors grew from around 1000 visitors/month in June 2012 to around 18K unique visitors/month in May 2013. Even more the company size has grown from 12 people working for startup to 215 employees from now on.
The Portal has shown tremendous capabilities with much slick and simple real estate search and break the ice of traditional search that other real estate portals are carrying for almost a decade.
