Since launching in Australia last year, Houzz has offered local timber merchants, flooring retailers, joiners, and fabricators a free directory platform to connect with renovators, specifiers, architects and many more.
Houzz announced earlier this year that since launching in Australia, it has more than doubled its community, attracting more than 1.4 million unique monthly users to its mobile and online platform, www.houzz.com.au
The Australian platform launched in August 2014, with 700,000 unique users and 10,000 active home renovation and design professionals.
Today, the Australian professional community has grown to over 24,000 active home professionals across more than 60 trades, including timber fabricators and flooring contractors.
Houzz professionals can use the platform as a business tool to build their brands, collaborate with clients and connect with homeowners looking to renovate or decorate across the country – and around the world.
Houzz is the largest platform for home renovation and design globally, with more than 35 million monthly unique users, 90 per cent of whom are homeowners, and over 800,000 active home professionals.
Houzz is also announcing the roll-out out of the Houzz Professional Marketplace in Australia (Houzz Pro+), the next expansion of this program outside the United States and the United Kingdom.
The local marketplace was developed based on demand from Houzz’s Australian professional community, which expressed the need to gain even greater visibility within their local areas.
The service is offered in addition to the free global platform, and tools that Houzz continues to invest in and provide to its professional community.
Adi Tatarko, Houzz cofounder and chief executive officer, said “Our mission from day one has been to deliver the best technology and experience for home renovation and design by addressing every aspect of the process, and this has been our mission in Australia, too.
“We’re excited to see the exceptional organic growth of our local community, and to connect Australian homeowners and home professionals with our community around the world,” he said.
