NuHabitat Takes On Real Estate Search

Austin-based NuHabitat, a new company out of the Capital Factory Accelerator, launched this week to take on the real estate search market. NuHabitat, led by Jeff Burke, is looking to tap into more information from local multiple listing services (MLS) to give consumers better information, and access to information previously only accessible to agents. The company is starting initially in the Central Texas market. The company's tools include such features as a "cumulative days on market" showing the true amount of time a property has been on the market--rather than just a current listing time, which can be manipulated by real estate agents by listing and relisting properties.
