Year Recap | 2018

We have improved the Houfy user interface significantly, upgraded to React version 16 and eliminated many small bugs in our system. Adding/Editing and Viewing listings has become simpler and the results pages on our vacation rental aadvertising platform show exact pricing or a range from lowest to highest price depending on the search parameters. Houfy mobile has also seen many improvements the last year.

We are listening to all your requests and suggestions for Houfy and continue to focus on our product/site. We expect 2019 to see as many improvements as you might have seen during 2018.

We exceeded our 2018 Target of 2500 completed listings by 203 listings: Actual: 2703
