Zurich, 8 July 2022 - Anyone who wants to buy a house or a flat needs time and patience. Because demand exceeds supply and sellers advertise on different platforms. Houzy makes the search easier and smarter: Switzerland's most complete property search finds more than 90 percent of all sales advertisements and combines them with valuable additional information such as market value or renovation requirements.
There are many real estate platforms. But only one with so many smart additional functions. Houzy's intelligent property search searches all relevant property platforms in Switzerland for sales listings. In addition to familiar and popular standards such as search subscription with notification or favourites list, it offers innovative functions with added value.
All search results are enriched with valuable additional information. For example, if you are looking for a house, you will not only see the price, description, location and a few pictures, but also a neutral market value estimate, energy efficiency, energy saving potential, solar potential and renovation requirements. With this information, prospective buyers can make an informed decision as to whether they want to take a closer look at a property and clarify the financing if they are seriously interested in the property. With the new property search, Houzy closes the last gap in the "buying - living - selling" life cycle of real estate.
Houzy is developing the leading platform for homeowners in Switzerland with strong partners such as UBS or Baloise, a lot of expert knowledge and a rapidly growing community (soon 100,000 users). The open ecosystem integrates user-friendly and free online tools such as the most comprehensive property search in Switzerland, the renovation calculator or the solar calculator, and brings homeowners and craftsmen together with just one click. The Zurich-based PropTech start-up was founded in 2017 and now employs 40 people.
Real estate prices have continued to rise. According to a UBS study, the market in Zurich is considered overheated. What does that mean for you?
