"The home renovation process is a natural extension of Zoocasa's mission of helping Canadians find the best home to suit their needs, wants and lifestyle," said Butch Langlois, General Manager of Zoocasa. "As consumers make what is the biggest purchase decision of their lives, consideration is given to renovating or customizing their home to better fit their needs. Providing renovation guidance as part of the overall search process will enable home buyers to make optimum purchasing decisions."
Zoocasa provides Canadians with the ability to not only search for their next residence but the site also allows them to search for other important factors such as walkability, nearby schools, and neighbourhoods. These recent acquisitions allows Zoocasa to offer more factors to aid in their goal of being Canada's favourite real estate search engine.
