Housing.com is a map-based property search portal, which allows users to search for rental and property purchase listings and also overlays these listings on a map. The site maps out the major detail of the property such as pictures, rental, security deposit, etc. Founded in 2012, Housing.com is available as a web app and a mobile site. Previously it was known as housing.co.in. In September 2013, Housing.co.in bought the domain name Housing.com and the national number 03-333-333-333 for a $1 million to go global.

Housing.com ( then Housing.co.in ) is founded by a group of 12 IIT Mumbai Alumni. The idea for Housing.co.in was born in their final semester at IIT Bombay. Of the 12 founders, only one was a resident of Mumbai. The remaining were looking for places to stay in after they left their hostels 6, 7 and 8 at IIT Bombay. There was no site that either had clarity or told them how far is the gym or the liquor store or the swimming pool. The idea was floated in April 2012 and the team of 12 formed in four months. After three-and-a-half weeks they launched housing.co.in, an alpha version by May-end. Some of the founders were in jobs, obtained through campus placements, which they left in 12-18 months to start or join housing.co.in. Starting from Mumbai, Housing. co.in now services nine more cities (Bangalore, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Pune)

Housing.co.in has received funding from Nexus Venture Partners in 2013. Housing.co.in competes with MagicBricks, 99Acres and Commonfloor.
