Huspy Secures Investment Round, led by Balderton Capital

Huspy is building a Super App for real estate starting with best technology for real estate agents and brokers · We facilitate more than 25% of all residential mortgages in Dubai

Dubai, UAE – 22nd May 2024 – We at Huspy, a property technology company headquartered in the UAE, with operations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Madrid, are proud to announce that we have raised a funding round led by Balderton Capital, with further participation from existing investor Fifth Wall, amongst other investors. This round of funding is at a considerably higher valuation than our 2022 Series A which raised USD 37 million (AED 135.8 million) and was led by Peak XV (formerly Sequoia Capital India & SEA). This newly announced strategic investment marks a pivotal moment in Huspy’s journey to build a Super App for real estate, revolutionizing the way people buy properties across MENA and Europe.

Launched in 2020, Huspy has rapidly transformed the real estate landscape; becoming the UAE’s largest mortgage provider within our first year of operations, today facilitating more than 25% of all residential mortgages in Dubai. Huspy today offers end-to-end home buying and selling services in the UAE and Spain. We have also aligned our ambitions with those of the UAE, by attracting top talent to the region and innovating within the sector; We have brought in over 200 professionals to the UAE from over 40 countries, bolstering the regional talent pool. In addition, we have attracted capital from some of the world’s most renowned venture capital firms, such as Peak XV (formerly Sequoia Capital India & SEA), Founders Fund, Balderton Capital, Fifth Wall, Breyer Capital, VentureFriends, B&Y Venture Partners, COTU Ventures, VentureSouq and others.

Building on this success, we have expanded our offerings to products covering everything related to real estate, streamlining the entire home buying process from property search to financing and beyond. To date, Huspy has processed over AED 22 billion in home transaction value, helping more than 13,500 people achieve their dream of homeownership.

Strategic Investments Highlight the Dubai and MENA Ecosystems’ Potential

Balderton Capital leading this funding round is particularly noteworthy, as a validation to our position in Europe. Known for leading the early stage rounds for globally recognized companies such as Revolut, one of the largest digital banks in the world, Balderton’s investment shows strong confidence in Huspy’s remarkable success.

Rana Yared, General Partner of Balderton Capital commented on the investment, “We are excited to be partnering with the Huspy team to help scale the company in Europe. Offering a holistic real estate platform that connects all stakeholders, Huspy's product has been thoughtfully designed to tackle major pain points and act as an operational cockpit for brokers and agents. Jad and the team bring exceptional ambition and deep market expertise, and we look forward to this next chapter as Huspy enters the European stage.” 

Fifth Wall, the largest asset manager focused on improving, future-proofing, and decarbonizing the built world, as well as other investors have reconfirmed their confidence in the company, increasing their investments in Huspy. Miguel Nigorra, Partner & Head of Europe at Fifth Wall commented: “We continue to see significant opportunities to disrupt the real estate market in EMEA. We believe Huspy’s industry-leading management team, strong investor base, and end-to-end offering brings a much needed, differentiated value proposition for the market’s brokers.”

Vision for Expansion and Future Growth

With a vision to become the largest home-buying company in Europe and the Middle East, by offering a Super App for real estate, we are gearing up for an exciting growth phase. We will be rolling out our real estate business across Spanish cities ahead of Europe and Middle East rollouts. 

Jad Antoun, CEO and Co-founder of Huspy commented on the round and expansion. “Over the last three years, we've established a strong and defensible business in the UAE and we believe we have the foundations today for a European and Middle Eastern expansion. We are incredibly happy to partner with Balderton Capital, to focus on a European rollout. The goal for Huspy remains the same as day zero, to build a category-defining business in this space in Europe and the Middle East and we believe we’re in a prime position to achieve that.”
