Since the emergence of COVID-19, the world has been shifting rapidly from tradition to digital means of doing business. Although industry digitization began before the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been one of the key drivers to push and speed up the transition for numerous industries worldwide.
To adhere to the growing rate of digitization, Igniv, a free peer-to-peer real estate platform, has provided means for individuals to find the house of their dreams, just one tap away.
Igniv: Real Estate at the Tip of Your Fingers
Founded in 2021 by David Cox, Igniv is a peer-to-peer online real estate platform that eliminates the need for a real estate agent to help you locate and secure the house that best fits your needs.
This property tech startup is developing the world’s largest property database that makes buying, selling, and renting residential properties much more efficient and more accessible, without fences blocking the way, literally. On October 23, 2021, the company generated over £125,000 in its pre-seed funding to help develop and further its free digital platform.
The goal is simple. By eliminating the idea of a middle man, buyers and sellers can easily connect and contact each other. This provides numerous benefits for both parties in terms of efficiency, transparency, and credibility. Not to mention, they also get the chance to eliminate additional costs of realtor fees to help them sell or find their dream home.
