In 2017, houzen launched with a vision to become a “global real estate exchange” by matching properties with their right tenants and buyers in <5 days by using AI, and Big Data and hence closing transactions faster. houzen started its journey by helping institutions rapidly lease and sell over 100s of premium properties to lifestyle renters (and buyers) through their global network of over 3,000 agents. Over the next 3 years houzen’s solutions have proven to be 2-3x faster than the rest of the market, and produced 10-18% higher rental and sales offers than the local market standard.
In 2021, houzen released the tech and data stack directly to customers through a newly launched B2C platform. This gave individual buyers, sellers and brokers access to the same powerful analysis and AI tech stack which larger institutions enjoyed till now. houzen is now turning the old-school manually intensive real estate market into a true global exchange, one data point at a time!
houzen releases new exciting features and services every month, so if you are a property investor, buyer or seller, visit http://www.deals.houzen.co.uk.
