In order to improve user experience and make the user’s complete real estate journey, from looking for a property to living in a housing society, seamless, Google and NoBroker will work together.
NoBroker, a prop-tech real estate firm, has acquired $5 million in financing from Google Corporate Development, which is part of SundarPichai’s Google for India Digitization initiative, to develop its services business NoBrokerhood.
Pichai previously stated that this fund will invest Rs 75,000 crore, or around $10 billion, in India over the next five to seven years.
With this financing, Google joins the current investors General Atlantic, Tiger Global and Moore Strategic Ventures in its Series E round.
Google and NoBroker will work together to improve user experience and make a user’s whole real estate journey – from locating a property to living in a housing society – a seamless experience.
The present capital will allow it to reach out to more clients in existing and new locations, as well as expedite the complete real estate process, from search to moving residences, and even managing society living seamlessly with the use of technology.
NoBrokerHood, which presently has 25 lakh users, engages in renting, buying, selling, home services, banking services, and society management services.
