Housing.Co.In Adds Classified Section For Farmers And Villagers

by Paul Joseph on August 16, 2013 · 0 comments

Online real estate and property listing web portal Housing.Co.In has forged ahead in an unlikely direction. The website now features a section where villagers can list their land for sale. The website that routinely lists flats, villas and other urban forms of living and shelters has extended the facility to villages. In other words, owners of ‘Land’ can now list their properties on the website and achieve the pre-sale functions very easily, revealed Advitiya Sharma, Co-founder, Housing, “ We feel that farmers and villagers need a fair and open market place to sell their land at fair prices. The new feature will be available in 30 days in Pune and its nearby villages. It will be gradually rolled out in other locations as well ” Though very much in its initiation phase, Housing Co has made great use of 360° Panorama feature to showcase lands that are listed. Sellers who wish to sell their lands will have to input standard information about their property. Additionally, as with any online realty portal, sellers can also upload multiple photos of the place. By venturing into this region, Housing.co.in has boldly set foot, where virtually no real estate company has apparently dared. Almost all portals seem to list properties like flats, shops and other concrete structures for sale. Additionally, many also list plain land too. But, all these properties are very well in or near the vicinity of populous cities. Housing.co.in has a golden opportunity to develop an untapped and unexplored market. Computer literacy or familiarity could be the first of multiple critical roadblocks that could limit the adoption of this ground-breaking feature. However, they could easily adopt the technique employed by matrimonial website Shaadi.com & others that had come up with a concept of physical approach centers nicknamed Shaadi Centers . Land owners could approach these kiosks and submit their details, which could be instantly uploaded for the entire India and even NRIs to see. The question is, with an initial roll-out planned for 10,000 villages, is Housing Co expecting organic adoption?
