1) Why is Houfy different?
A) Marketplace - Lodging
1) Direct communication - no hidden phone/e-mail/sites etc in messaging systems.
2) Direct payment - no need for Online marketplaces, current technology makes it "easy" to create similar sites + payment systems are much better than years ago. Think Stripe/Paypal etc. and in the future Blockchain.
3) System to add reservations from different sites in stead of excel sheets
4) Reminders - payments due etc.
B) Marketplace - RE , incl. long term rentals
1) Broker fees, cut at least 1/2 - by adding listing connecting buyer/seller or RE agent directly.
2) RE agent/Seller can create local guides & share with clients/friends etc.
1) Make & Share guides = good for SEO of listing
2) Invite clients & friends = other side of market = demand
3) Rewards platform
D) Connected Sites:
1) single websites, small mgt company sites/ local sites. - needed own website - connected to database of "mother" Houfy.
