Houzez provides powerful tools such as property management system that you can use to manage a real estate marketplace and open your website to real estate advertisement listed by other agents or agencies.

The purpose of the Membership System is to give the possibility to your users (agents and agencies) to publish their properties by paying a fee or to list properties for free.

If you wish to charge your users to list their properties, the membership can be set in two ways.

  1. based on membership packages that you can create and your users can purchase
  2. based on pay per listing method where the user is charged for each published property

If you want to leave your website free to list properties, is also possible to charge your users if they want to upgrade a property to featured.
