Since its in­cep­tion, Du­biz­zle has ac­quired a num­ber of U.A.E.-based star­tups in­clud­ing Ex­pat Wheels, We­cashany­car, Masterkey and Airlist. The plat­form has more than 130,000 live list­ings of U.A.E. prop­er­ties open for sale or rental, with oper­a­tions in eight coun­tries across MENA, in­clud­ing Egypt, Le­banon and Saudi Ara­bia. In Jan­uary this year, the on­line clas­si­fieds web­site got fully ac­quired by the OLX Group, a sub­sidiary of South Africa-based in­vestor Naspers, plac­ing it at a value of $400 mil­lion. More re­cently, the com­pany launched a new por­tal for list­ing off-line projects in the U.A.E., con­sist­ing of more than 350 off-plan projects, in­clud­ing floor plans, con­struc­tion up­dates, 360 vir­tual-re­al­ity tours and pay­ment plans.
