Housing.com, India’s most innovative real estate platform, has received an investment of an undisclosed amount from Vineet Singh, former business head of 99Acres.com.  As part of Info Edge's executive leadership team for a decade, Vineet built 99Acres.com andNaukri.com from start-ups to scaled companies with strong sales capabilities, and he will now closely work with the Housing.com management team in a senior advisory role.

On board as a personal investor, Vineet will also serve as a senior advisor to the company working closely with the management team.  We believe that his association will further fuel the ambitious growth plans of Housing.com.”
