More than a marketplace
If you’re interested in housing or commercial property in the Netherlands, you can’t get past funda and funda in business. If you’re seeking or selling a home, you probably check our app before getting out of bed. With 97% brand awareness and 4.6 million unique visitors every month, we are one of the largest and best-known websites in the Netherlands. We even have a dedicated fan page. Does this make us proud? Absolutely. Is it a given? Absolutely not.
What we do
Yes, we are first and foremost a search engine geared towards finding someone's ultimate home. But over two decades, we've grown much bigger than that. We are a toolbox, providing users with data-driven tools that give insight into homes and neighbourhoods. We are a content platform, supporting consumers and real estate agents in their processes of buying and selling. We are a YouTube channel, informing and inspiring home-seekers and -sellers with video. We are an advertising platform, providing a huge reach to other companies so they can grow their audience. And we have many more roles to play.
The biggest step in your life should be carefree
We realise that there’s a lot more we can do to ensure our users have the very best experience. Like making the search process even easier and expanding our content and services. And to help real estate agents market their services and properties even better. Our bucket list of ambitions is endless. We’re developing from a marketplace – where supply and demand meet – into a platform that helps our visitors with all the important things that come with buying, owning and selling a home.
We work on realising our ambitions with a team of 141 passionate people from 25 different countries. We get together in our beautiful office with unobstructed views of the Amsterdam IJ – unless a giant cruise ship decides to dock right in front of our office. Here, we develop features, products, services and content. It’s also where we blow off steam, celebrate our wins and play the occasional game of FIFA or table tennis. You can’t do that in your home office, can you?
