Online Housing Portal Housing.com Introduces Agent Map For Agent Search

Housing logoMap-based real estate portal Housing.com (previously, Housing.co.in) has introduced a map-based listing of real estate agents, called Agents Map, helping property seekers find a real estate agent in the locality that they’re looking for a house in, reports iamwire.

Users can search for agents in three ways – locality search gives results within a particular locality, sub-locality search lists agents within a specific area in a locality and landmark search provides results for agents around a landmark in a city. The website also has a feature for agents to register themselves on the platform.

The website also has a mobile website, Android and iOS apps.
