Househappy is a free, user generated, photo-driven real estate search engine.They are a platform for buyers, sellers, and brokers to connect, search, and post property for sale around the world. Househappy was founded in 2011 with the goal of creating a real estate search platform that would simplify property search and make information available to everyone. The site was launched on March 27, 2013. Founder/CEO Kevin McCloskey was inspired to create househappy after his experience as a broker during the 1990’s, when the real estate industry transitioned from brick and mortar to the internet. Despite the potential of the internet to break down old barriers, real estate is still a fragmented, regional industry. It was designed to be the ideal platform for buyers, sellers, and brokers. Their team has a deep and personal understanding of the real estate industry, a strong sense of direction and includes a talented group of developers. Everyone who works at househappy brings something unique, but their skills blended together creates a cohesive product. It is a special combination of real estate knowledge, design sense and technical know-how. It is not connected to the established real estate industry; they have created something totally new to serve everyone involved in the real estate industry.
It is available around the world in 196 countries. They have launched globally and have been receiving worldwide media attention. They are a startup and they’ve got lots of ideas. It’s only a matter of time until they start rolling them all out. They were very fortunate to find an angel investor early in development. It gave them the time to focus on user experience, first and foremost, target the entire real estate market, rather than having to worry about rolling out monetization streams right away. The site will always be free to the users: brokers, buyers, and sellers. Photos are what matters most to buyers when they’re searching for homes. They don’t want to hinder the simplicity of the site by placing ads on the right hand side, or banner. At Househappy they value collaborative connections and beautiful design. Their free access and social features allow people to communicate easily and on their own terms, ultimately improving the real estate experience for everybody. The platform is photo-driven in an effort to minimize the unnecessary visual noise and simplify property search.
