Buying a home is a stressful process. Not only is it becoming increasingly difficult to find reasonably priced properties that are also attractive to live in, but the mortgage process, which most buyers have to go through, is time-consuming and full of potential traps. While the first problem won’t most likely be solved any time soon, there’s one Dubai-based startup that’s actively trying to address the second issue, and its name is Huspy.

Essentially, Huspy is an online mortgage platform that facilitates hassle-free financing for people who would like to live in Dubai. It was founded in August 2020 by chief executive officer Jad Antoun and chief technology officer Khalid Al Ashmawy, who understand the local market through first-hand experience.

“We started Huspy with the aim to disrupt one of the largest industries and bring the entire home loan process online. Customers are massively underserved where lack of visibility, poor customer experience, and overpayment are common problems. We want to solve for that,” said Antoun. “The team has built tools and systems to leverage technology in a highly operational business to give us the ability to provide customers with the best rates, faster mortgage close times and a great digital experience,” added Ashmawy.

Instead of having to wait up to 10 weeks to secure a mortgage, Huspy lets its users search over 500 home loan options in seconds to find the one that fits them the best. That way, it’s possible to get a personalized home loan three times faster and secure the best price possible. Best of all, Huspy doesn’t charge its users broker fees at all. Instead, it makes money by charging the banks a commission for every loan.

Huspy is available on iOS as well as Android, and you can download it yourself right now to see what it has to offer. The startup is backed by leading tech investors, including VentureFriends, B&Y Ventures, and Plug and Play, so you know your mortgage will be in good hands.

Facebook Will Create 10,000 Jobs In The EU To Build Its Metaverse

Facebook has announced that it wants to create 10,000 jobs in the European Union (EU) to build its metaverse, a virtual reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users.

The concept of the metaverse can be traced to Neal Stephenson’s 1992 cyberpunk novel Snow Crash. In the novel, the metaverse is a virtual shared space that appears to its users as an urban environment. This space is accessed through personal terminals connected to virtual reality goggles.

Sound familiar? That’s because the metaverse is quickly becoming a reality thanks to companies like Oculus, a subsidiary of Facebook, and the combined effort of developers and content creators from around the world.

By creating thousands of new high-skilled jobs within the EU over the next five years, Facebook wants to accelerate the development of the metaverse to usher in a new phase of interconnected virtual experiences, enabled by technologies like virtual and augmented reality.

“At its heart is the idea that by creating a greater sense of ‘virtual presence,’ interacting online can become much closer to the experience of interacting in person,” said Nick Clegg, Facebook’s vice-president of global affairs. “The metaverse has the potential to help unlock access to new creative, social and economic opportunities”.

According to the official announcement, Facebook decided to invest in the EU because the company believes that European talent is world-leading, supported by first-class universities. Facebook also mentioned the role European policymakers are playing in shaping the internet, so it’s likely that the investment has a political dimension to it.

Aware of its tarnished reputation, the social media giant stressed that no single company would own and operate the metaverse — just like no single company owns the internet today. Of course, that doesn’t change anything about the fact that Facebook wants to play a huge role in it.

Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg told his employees that Facebook is becoming a metaverse company with the goal of building a set of connected social apps and supporting hardware. The recently released Horizon Workrooms remote collaboration app for the Oculus Quest 2 headset can be seen as an early piece of the much larger puzzle the metaverse will become in the future.
