Housi

Web Platform

Housi is a a Sydney-based startup that aims to change the way that Australians interact with property online.

The challenge

We were tasked with the end-to-end design and delivery of a responsive web platform that empowers Australian home buyers with a new way to find their dream home.

We collaborated closely with the Housi team to design a fresh approach to discovering property online. We orchestrated design thinking and UX workshops to explore and design an end-to-end User Experience that would bring the concept to life, as well as delivering a full set of screens for the UI component of the project.

The tech

To power a dynamic web platform with searchable, taggable and pinnable real estate listings, Neap architected and developed a scalable API backend alongside a front-end powered by isomorphic React.

In practice, all of the development work was done in-house by Neap, and the team leveraged commoditized open-source technology to deliver a scalable platform that offers optimal performance, extendability and SEO support. To support fetching new property listings from Domain, Neap used Google Cloud technology to create an integration between the Housi and the Domain API.

The outcome

Neap successfully worked with Housi to bring a completely new property experience to the Australian market with a fully responsive real estate platform.

The platform was launched with live real estate data from the Sydney region, powered by Domain, allowing home buyers to use tagging and user-generated boards to make finding their dream home easier than ever.
