Housfy’s platform for real estate and home services serves homeowners’ different needs in one place, such as real estate, rental management and the leading portal for buyers to find the right mortgage. The Barcelona-based proptech technology platform has “carried out some 6,000 purchase and sale operations…signed more than 3,000 mortgages and we have a rental portfolio of some 700 homes”.
The interview also highlighted the property types that attract the most interest on the market (amongst new buyers) and the launch of Housfy’s new buy to rent service was discussed, which allows people to keep their apartment under management and use Housfy to rent it.
