House-Hunting is not really an undefined problem and it is painful considering the amount of time required to find a new suitable place to live or the repeated visits in an around the same area and most importantly the number of available options of flats and houses to look through in the same time.
FEBA’s location technologies are the best solution to this problem. It enables the user with information about the houses and flats delivered to them automatically with their changing location.
Imagine the hours of research put in to find out a place online or through Social media groups or talking to stringent brokers and then visit! And what are the odds?
- It is nearby the same locality you visited 3 days ago. Wondering if you knew about this place too the other day.
- Not liking the 7th floor which you are visiting and returning empty-handed totally unaware that 14th floor is available too.
- Like the 3rd row house instead of 5th which you came to visit. But the owner is unavailable. Can’t help!
- Various owners are posting free ads as targeted ads are costly. And free ads are not reaching you
Introducing FEBA’s Social Walls
1.Wall of Places
“We had an idea, an idea to enable people with digital sticky notes which they can stick to any place in the world and leave messages in the form of texts, images, and videos for everyone who will ever visit the place. So we made a wall for that and called it FEBA’s Wall of Places and every post on this wall can be read by people in the vicinity of the place where the post was created and stick…..Of Course only if they are on FEBA.”
