Casavo, a France-based fintech that seeks to make it easier for users to buy and sell their homes, has raised $408 million in combined debt and equity. The round is comprised of $306 million in debt, along with $102 million in Series D equity financing, and brings Casavo’s total funding to $798 million.
The equity round was led by Exor NV, along with contributions from existing investors Greenoaks, Project A Ventures, 360 Capital, P101 SGR, Picus Capital, and Bonsai Partners; as well as new investors Neva SGR, Endeavor Catalyst, Hambro Perks, Fuse Venture Partners, and others. Casavo reports that the funds bring the company’s borrowing capacity to more than $510 million, which will be key to scaling its home-buying business.
Casavo was founded in 2017 to simplify the process of buying and selling homes. The company originally launched as a home-buying platform and has since evolved to offer a marketplace that serves both home sellers and buyers. Sellers can either receive a purchase offer from Casavo or find a buyer through the company’s partner agent network, and buyers can access Casavo’s inventory of properties and receive integrated services such as mortgages.
“The round will allow us to consolidate our leadership in Europe by growing across our existing markets in Italy, Spain and Portugal, while expanding into new ones, with France being a priority,” said Casavo Founder and CEO Giorgio Tinacci. “We’ll continue investing in our mission to simplify the way people sell and buy homes, having evolved from a pure home-buying platform to a leading next-generation European residential marketplace.”
Today’s funding comes just four months after Casavo’s last fundraise in March, when the company received a $203 million investment. Casavo currently has 4,000 homes in Italy, Spain, and Portugal listed on its platform. So far, the company has sold 3,200 properties for a total value of $1+ billion.
