“We have launched our new advertising campaign which captures the ethos on which Housing.com was built – to make it easier for everyone to search and discover until they find their perfect home,” said Dhruv Agarwala. , Group CEO, Housing.com, PropTiger. .com and Makaan.com.

Housing.com seeks to give consumers as many options as possible so they don’t have to settle for anything less than perfect, he added.

Since October last year, customer traffic on Housing.com was the highest and the number stood at around 16.5 million in March and was around 2 million more than its nearest competitor, had declared Agarwala in May.

REA Group had in December 2020 acquired a majority stake in Elara Technologies which owns three Indian property portals – Housing.com, Makaan.com and PropTiger.com – and renamed Elara to REA India.
