Chilean proptech Houm bagged $35 million in Series A capital within six months of securing seed funding to expand its operation and workforce, TechCrunch reported.

Led by VC firm Goodwater Capital, the Series A round also saw participation from Fifth Wall, OneVC, Elad Gil, Liu Jang, Fen Ventures, Broadhaven and Rahul Mehta of DST Global.

Founded in 2018, the Santiago-based proptech has thus far raised $45 million.

With the new cash injection, the real estate startup will expand its operation further in Mexico, Colombia and Chile, where it currently operates, and triple its current team of 350.

Comparable to real estate marketplace QuintoAndar, Houm provides services for selling and renting houses and apartments.

“Ninety-five percent of our properties are leased in 30 days or less, and our freelance force, the Houmers, allow us to show properties every six minutes every day,” said Benjamin Labra, Houm co-founder and CEO.
