Pune: To facilitate and ease the process of safe home buying, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs publicly launched ‘CREDAI Awaas App’ and NAREDCO’s online portal ‘HousingforAll.com’.
The launch was done at a webinar on Monday by Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Minister Housing and Urban Affairs and Civil Aviation. The initiative aims to provide a credible platform for prospective home buyers and help them interact with developers directly.
CREDAI Awaas App is a residential project discovery online platform through which buyers will be able to virtually explore and experience the projects from 220 cities across the country. The app aims to facilitate transparent home buying in India of RERA approved projects by CREDAI developers.
Speaking on the occasion, Hardeep Singh Puri, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, “We are happy that CREDAI and NAREDCO have launched the CREDAI Awaas App and Housingforall.com portal. This is a significant milestone for home-buying. The launch of the affordable housing Complex is a very significant step in achieving Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of Housing for all by 2022.”
Jaxay Shah, Chairman, CREDAI National, said “Proptech is the future of Real Estate and initiatives like the CREDAI Awaas App will be instrumental in bridging the hiatus between the customer and developer in the coming days. The significant feature of the app is that the dream of buying a home remains a click away and one can simultaneously connect with developers across India.”
Elaborating on the launch of CREDAI Awaas app, Satish Magar, President, CREDAI National, said “The unprecedented COVID 19 crises has made people realize the importance of homes and also that real estate remains the safest investment option. The launch of AWAAS App by CREDAI is one of many such initiatives to bring transparency and improve trust between developers and homebuyers by harnessing the power of technology. This will be an experiential and interactive platform and buyers will now be able to view complete information about the property which will allow them to take an informed decision thus creating a smooth virtual home-buying experience.”

- Supports the Government of India in their efforts to ease the process of buying a home.
- Protects home buyers’ interest by bringing them on a common platform with credible developer members of CREDAI, thereby avoiding middlemen and ensuring transparency in transactions.
