India-based real estate marketplace Housing.com has teamed up up with community management site MyGate for joint search-and-discovery operations.

The partnership will enable users of MyGate Homes, the recently launched classifieds segment of MyGate, to simultaneously list properties on Housing.com. This move is expected to supercharge MyGate’s operations in the classifieds/search-and-discovery domain while helping Housing.com expand its customer base, according to an official statement by the company.

MyGate is predominantly a community management site, used by over 20,000 housing communities across India. It launched MyGate Homes in September, after piloting the service for three months across 2,500 communities in Bengaluru. At the time, the company had announced an ambitious target of listing 25,000 properties per month by December.

Commenting on the partnership, Dhruv Agarwala, Group CEO of Housing.com, Makaan.com and PropTiger, said, “Our partnership with the largest community app in the country will be highly beneficial for both the platforms. This initiative is in line with our strategy to strengthen our full-stack rental offerings on Housing Edge. While buyers and tenants on Housing.com will have more options to select from, given the large number of listings that could potentially come on our platform through this strategic partnership, it will enable MyGate users to seamlessly use our platform to list their properties to get access to millions of potential buyers and tenants.”

“To enhance the value of MyGate Homes, we have entered into this partnership where our users can benefit from the reach of Housing.com in just a click, bringing up a larger number of eyeballs to their listing and opening up an additional pool of potential buyers/tenants. We expect such partnerships to deliver value to our users,” said Shreyans Daga, CTO and Co-founder of MyGate.

Housing.com recently formed a similar alliance with Singapore-based Homzhub, a remote property management company. The relationship was part of Housing.com’s strategy to digitize the rental ecosystem through its end-to-end service Housing Edge. In the last couple of years, the company has partnered with the likes of RentoMojo and Urban Company.

Founded in 2012 and acquired by Elara Technologies in 2017, Housing.com is a leading real estate marketplace in India. Its parent Elara Technologies recently rebranded as REA India, taking after controlling stakeholder REA Group’s brand name.
