The study discovered that the involvement of women between the age group of 18 and 34 (millennial) is growing rapidly in property-related decisions. In 2016, women users accounted for 51% of the sessions online, while men accounted for 49%.

The campaign has been created around the need for focused search in a quick and efficient manner.
Conceived by Lowe Lintas, the campaign is built around an endearing dynamic between a husband and wife, with the wife playing a critical role in the home-search process. The advertisement is weaved around a situational comedy involving a couple on what is meant to be a typical morning. The narrative evolves into a pleasant surprise in the end with the man doffing his hat to his wife – “Ghar dhoondhna koi inse seekhe”.
