It was last valued at about $225 million, when it lifted a contemporary $ninety million(furthermore an extra $15 million grant) from its greatest backer and stakeholder SoftBank. It also counts Nexus Venture Partners and Helion Venture Partners as one particular of its major investors. But, one particular simply cannot set a finger on the right valuation of world wide web organizations in the existing downfall of the startup ecosystem.

Because of the exit of founder Rahul Yadav last 12 months, the online serious-estate startup Housing has been as a result of many ups and downs.
