The move will see Hugo Burge, Howzat’s co-founder and vice chairman of price comparison site Cheapflights, joining Zoomf’s board.
The site, which currently covers property in London, said it will use the new financing to expand nationally, but didn’t disclose how much it had received.
Howzat, which is headed up by Burge and Cheapflights’ CEO David Soskin, also recently invested in social network Wayn. The fund was launched with an initial $10m investment.
Zoomf has been funded so far by parent firm Arclight Media Technology. It has been in beta since the middle of last year, and is set to ‘officially’ launch in the next few weeks. It is going head to head with Nestoria, which also presents listings from estate agents’ sites alongside a nice mapping interface.
