With the COVID crisis, cleanliness and sanitation are paramount, now more than ever, when it comes to buying, selling, and renting a space.
Breezeway has raised $8 million in a Series A funding round which it will use to boost property manager support when it comes to cleaning a property in preparation for rental.
Leading the round was Schooner Capital, with participation from existing investors like Tamarisc Ventures, Krillion Ventures, and Launch Capital.
With this capital, Breezeway will expand its platform, develop AI-based features, and further support its marketplace of products.
Jeremy Gall, Founder and CEO of Breezeway, told sources:
“Safety is the biggest trend in travel right now, as COVID-19 means you have to be more detail-oriented about protocol. We are providing property managers with tools to drive efficiency, get the right person to do the right job at the right time and validating, for us, that clients can get more done with less people.”
Breezeway isn’t the only real estate company taking cleanliness into account. Zillow has brought back Zillow Offers with a new initiative that promises safety to house hunters by deep cleaning a home before viewings. Virtual tours have also spiked in popularity since the pandemic began, effectively changing, possibly forever, how people sell, search, and select a home.
