Bogota-based proptech startup that utilizes a two-fold approach to real estate, Habi, has announced that it has raised $10 million in a Series A funding round. The round was led by Inspired Capital, with participation from 8VC, Clocktower, Homebrew, Vine Ventures, and Zigg.

Habi had the bad timing of launching right before a global pandemic. But, it turned poison into medicine, as it has flourished in a world where many companies floundered.

The reason? Brynne McNulty Rojas, the co-founder of Habi, says the platform looks to be a one-stop-shop for everything surrounding the home. This means, in the future, Habi will facilitate moving and storage, furnishings, and more as well. 

Rojas even claims that the tech supporting the platform allows for a home to sell three-times faster than the market average.

Habi will use the equity to expand services into Medellin as early as this month, with plans for further expansion into other Latin American markets.
