Zingat.com, one of Turkey’s leading real estate websites, has launched a new service targeting families. Users can now search for homes based on nearby schools.
Shoppers can sort listings by nearby kindergartens, high schools, and private education institutions (schools for disabled or gifted students). The tool even lists the number of teachers and students at each school alongside listings for nearby properties for rent or sale.
Turkish families tend to search for properties based on their children’s needs and the new tool will likely prove popular during the school enrolment term.
Zingat closed a 65 million TL ($11.5 million U.S.) investment round led by Dubai-based Property Finder Group with participation from General Atlantic in April. It’s using fresh capital to accelerate its advertising activities. The company plans to raise more cash in the future to fund overseas expansion.
