Housing.com’s ‘Parr..se Perfect’ campaign aimed to connect with consumers on a deeper level.
The real estate industry is a significant contributor to India’s economy and is expected to continue its growth trajectory in the coming years. By 2030 the market size of the sector is predicted to reach US$1 trillion, up from US$200 billion in 2021. It is also expected to contribute 13% to the country’s GDP by 2025. In addition to traditional real estate, retail, hospitality, and commercial real estate are also growing rapidly, providing essential infrastructure to meet India’s expanding needs.
The pandemic-induced digitization has given a significant boost to digital real estate in India. The decline in data costs has led to a rapid increase in internet and smartphone penetration, resulting in more people participating in the digital economy, including buying and selling online. As a result, more classified advertising dollars are being spent online. The revenue generated from digital classified advertising in the real estate sector is expected to increase to US$200 million by 2025, up from the current market value of US$130 million.

Housing.com’s ‘Parr.. Se Perfect’ campaign acknowledges that home buyers/renters or homeowners could end up not making a final decision to rent, buy or sell for reasons that could be very distinctive and personal.
In this industry, consumer involvement is typically high, which means that at every stage of the home-buying, renting, and selling process, customers are often bombarded with doubts, questions, and reservations.
Buying a dream home at times becomes a dream only. Despite devoting a lot of time and money, usually people end up settling for a home less than perfect for their needs due to a lack of options. Usually, consumers tend to ignore the little doubts that can bother them later.
With this ad campaign, Housing.com encourages consumers to keep searching until they find their perfect choice of home or tenant/buyer. The campaign highlights how Housing.com welcomes and celebrates every question or concern that customers may have and address those queries.
With 40 crore investment on the campaign in 12 months across platforms, the target was to reach over 100 million impressions.
The brief given to the agency was to leverage the strong insight that the brand has and create a memorable and impactful campaign in line with their tonality that not only increases awareness of housing.com but also drives preference for the brand.
In their quest to simplify the home-buying, renting, and selling journey, with this new campaign, the company acknowledges that home buyers/renters or homeowners could end up not making a final decision to rent, buy or sell for reasons that could be very distinctive and personal.
Featuring various artists, the Housing.com ad campaign showcases the real estate company’s basic principle of providing the maximum choices for homebuyers, Owners, and tenants, with a clever word-play on the Hindi word Parr (which means “but”, referring to the many doubts that arise in the minds of anyone dealing with the question of property sale and purchase) in its slogan Parr… se Perfect. Witty, humorous, and pithy, each ad film represents modern-day people, with their new-age requirements and expectations, and how the real estate company is committed to accommodating expectations they might have from their ideal home.
