Announcing the fresh funding, Mumbai-based Housing.com said that "it has secured a fresh round of funding from SoftBank, its largest investor".

The company did not disclose the SoftBank's increase in stake after the fresh infusion of Rs 100 crore. SoftBank had over 30 percent stake in the portal.

Founded in 2012, the portal had raised so far over USD 100 million in capital from leading investors, including SoftBank, Nexus Ventures, Falcon Edge and Helion Ventures.

Housing.com has established a focused strategy on buying and selling homes, the largest and most lucrative segment of the real estate market.

SoftBank had in 2014 announced plans to invest USD 10 billion in India over a decade. It has already put in USD 627 million into online marketplace Snapdeal and smaller investments in property site Housing.com.
