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.

With a great product and a strong management team, I am a proud investor in Housing.com and look forward to further this dynamic company on its path to becoming the largest and most trusted player in the online real estate space," said Singh.
