About Houzy

The first open platform for homeowners

Houzy develops the leading platform for homeowners in Switzerland with strong partners, expert knowledge and a fast growing community. The open ecosystem integrates user-friendly online tools such as the property valuation, the renewal fund calculator and the plant manager and brings homeowners and craftsmen together with one click. Houzy is continuously expanding with new features, partners and tools.


This is why we go full throttle

Home ownership is an emotional topic that is becoming increasingly complex: finding the right house or apartment, fixing the price, financing the purchase, keeping the home in good shape and one day selling it or passing it on to the next generation. New providers, innovative technologies and ever more information are making it even more difficult to keep track. But home ownership doesn't have to be complicated.

We solve the uncertainty and increasing complexity around home ownership.

How Houzy makes home ownership easy

We intelligently link data and information and use them to derive individual recommendations for homeowners. For example, we tell you how much money to set aside when the heating system needs to be renovated. In this way, we resolve uncertainties and reduce complexity.


This makes us one of a kind


We work with partners, but are independent and provide neutral advice. Our users know that we inform them honestly, trustworthily and transparently. So everyone on Houzy is always free to decide for themselves.


We not only link data and information intelligently, but also connect experts and community members with just one click. That's how we make smart use of synergies. In the houzy community, everyone helps everyone, whether homeowner, craftsman or architect.


Life as a homeowner is an emotional journey in several stages. Needs change according to life phases and real estate cycles. We centralize all these needs in one place.

Houzy - best employer in Zurich 2023

kununu has crowned Houzy as the best employer in the SME category in the city of Zurich. We are very happy that our Houzy culture is still lived by all Houzies after more than five years. Each of our team members is indispensable and brings something unique to the community - and this diversity is what distinguishes us.

This is what we stand for

think big

Think Big

We are brave and think big. Even though we are still a small startup. This gives us a lot of thrust, motivates us and drives our passion further.



Everyone stands behind our mission and is 100 percent committed to it. This team spirit drives us all and strengthens the Houzy team.

walk the talk

Walk The Talk

We do what we say and say what we do. We achieve our goals because we are honest, credible and transparent, both internally and externally.



The common good is more important than the individual good, internally and externally. That's why we put the community - homeowners, tradespeople and real estate professionals - first.

user centered


Everything we do, we do for our users. Always. Before we develop something, we ask ourselves whether users really need it - and how we can solve it in a more user-friendly way.

Our Journey


New craftsmen branches / Own realtors offer / Customer portal for craftsmen / Order portal for homeowners / Intensification of partnership with UBS and Baloise

In 2023, we selectively strengthened our partner network and, in the first half of the year, launched additional craftsmen pages for balconies, insulation, saunas, swimming pools, total renovation, and stairs and railings. In the meantime, homeowners can ask more than 800 craftsmen for an offer with just a few clicks.

1st quarter

In the first quarter, we developed our realtor service with Brixel, a startup of the Baloise Group, and launched it online. From now on, homeowners can sell their house or apartment themselves. Of course supported by our experienced real estate consultants, if desired.

1st half year

In the first half of the year, we strengthened the cooperation with our strategic partners UBS and Baloise. Among other things, with joint marketing campaigns. 

4th quarter

In 2023, we worked intensively on HouzyConnect. This customer portal for craftsmen simplifies communication between craftsmen and homeowners from the initial offer request to project completion. In parallel, we developed a portal for homeowners to make it easier for them to manage their orders.


Navigation / Consulting / Property Search / Construction Coach / Real Estate Gains Tax / Partner Network / Strategic Partners


Our strategic partners Baloise and UBS intensify their partnership with us and increase their financial participation. Together, we will strengthen and expand our position as the leading platform for homeowners in Switzerland.

Avoid costly overinsurance or dangerous underinsurance. With the insurance check, you can find out which insurances are mandatory, recommendable, worth checking or not necessary for your house or apartment.


More and more users are accessing Houzy on their smartphones. That's why we have completely redesigned and optimized the mobile navigation for our platform. At the same time, we launched the first real estate gains tax calculator for all 26 cantons and the most comprehensive property search in Switzerland for everyone (even without a Houzy profile). It searches through 90 percent of all sales advertisements and enriches the search results with valuable additional information: Market value estimate, energy efficiency, energy saving potential, renovation needs and solar potential.


Buying or selling a house or apartment involves a lot of work. That's why we have divided the buying process and the selling process into individual steps and explain in an easy-to-understand way what you should pay attention to at each step. 


Demand determines the market price. With our new demand check, you can check online how great the demand is for your house or apartment. If you want to renovate, refurbish or convert your home, our construction coach, an experienced construction expert, will support you. He will advise you, plan the renovation, coordinate all the work and manage the project for you.


With a few measures you can bring your house or apartment in shape and achieve a higher selling price. With our calculator you can simulate measures and optimize the selling price. In addition, you can add new criteria such as energy efficiency class or condition analysis for the property search on the platform.


With our new navigation, we map the homeowner journey " buying - living - selling". So you can find what you're looking for faster on the website and in the platform. And with the affordability calculator, you can find out whether you can finance your dream house or apartment. In addition, we now offer free consultations with our experts on topics such as the rent-to-buy model, selling price advice, assets and insurance or on-site valuation.
