If you’re looking to rent or buy your next house, Germany’s notorious startup incubator Rocket Internet is hoping it can help, after its new Lamudi real estate platform went live in 12 countries across Asia, Africa, and Latin America — with more to come soon.
The launch of Lamudi sees Rocket Internet consolidate five different services – Vamido (Africa), Ubilista (Latin America), Zamudi and House (both Asia) – under one roof. Like a number of the group’s e-commerce ventures, Lamudi is a marketplace, which means that sellers and landlords can upload their listings, with images, for renters and buyers to discover.
Initially targeted at developing markets, the service is available in Algeria, Bangladesh, Colombia, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Uganda. A spokesperson tells us that “further country launches will take place in the upcoming weeks and months.”
