A new portal launched in France claims to bring together real estate listings from 10,000 agency and private sites and deliver its users listings that aren’t available anywhere else. Vizzit, a venture from the people behind the European second-home portal Green-Acres, recently launched in Beta and is receiving feedback from users.
Vizzit claims to be able to surface real estate listings according to users’ criteria and alert them before the listing appears on other portals. Although not specified on the website, the reference to ‘Vizzitbot’ is almost certainly to a proprietary crawler that the portal uses to source properties and de-duplicate them while aggregating property details from different sources. Specifics on exactly how the listings are sourced and whether the 10,000 sites agency sites from which they come are aware of Vizzit’s activities is unclear at this point.
