Housing is an Indian online real estate listing portal that was established in 2012, and is headquartered in Mumbai. The company was created as a solution to the problem of lack of transparency and information in the Indian real estate space by a group of friends from IIT-Bombay. Housing uses technology and exhaustive data-collection to create an interactive and uncomplicated online home search experience. From a small start-up, the company has grown exponentially over the years, and now lists properties of over 40 cities from all over the country.
Housing has created a revolution of sorts in the Indian online Real Estate space, by introducing several innovative features that help to make the home search experience far superior than through other portals, or even offline avenues. The properties we list include PGs/Rentals, Resale, Land, New Projects, and Serviced Apartments. Their Data Collectors click real photographs of all the properties listed on their site and collect more than 100 data points; and with this, they are able to provide their users with all the information they would want while looking for their next home. Additionally, features like photo-realistic walkthroughs and their new Slice View technology allow users to remotely explore properties like they are really there!
Housing.com has acquired several startups like HomeBuy360 in Aug. 2015, RealtyBI in Jun. 2015 and Indial Real State Forum (IREF) in March 2015.
