Recently launched Emirati property portal houza.com has announced the release of its new agent matching tool to put property owners in contact with its agent customers to carry out valuations. Similar in scope to the agent matching tool set to be launched by UK startup portal Boomin, houza's new functionality asks potential vendors or landlords to input their neighbourhood before presenting a list of agents in the area ready to give a valuation with those agents on higher-tier plans automatically pre-marked on the subsequent form to be filled in with the vendor contacts details.
The tool is reportedly the first of its kind in the region with a houza's press release keen to stress the centrality of the portal's agent customers in the reasoning for the tool's development. As Barry Judge, CEO of houza, explains:
“At houza, we put homeowners in touch with local experts to give them a quick and reliable market appraisal on the value of their property. These experts have their finger on the pulse when it comes to knowing recent sale prices, having sold properties there themselves and working exclusively in the area."
