Are you overwhelmed by the pile of paperwork linked to your housing? Homepus is the solution. When a property is sold, you have to provide its administrative, material and legal history, which is not always simple. Homepus dematerializes and unites all the documents associated with a property in a single application. The file can be passed from one owner to the next in a single click. Everything from plumbing work, painting the living room, changing the windows or servicing the boiler – Homepus knows everything about your home.

" For his end of studies project, Yann considered the question of old real estate acquisition. His research with users and stakeholders from the sector revealed a need for conserving and transmitting the work carried out over the years. As properties change hands over the years or even with the same owner over a long period, it is difficult to keep a record of all the modifications in a house. Yet this information can prove to be precious when further building work or maintenance work is undertaken, or simply to keep track of the progress made.  The Homepus application lets the homeowner compile all this information very simply in the same place. What is really unique about this project is that, thanks to the time spent listening to stakeholders, it also has strong appeal to professionals, specialists in real estate sales and building professionals, with a platform for contacting their clients and the possibility of more accurate estimates, as well as automatically recording all the work carried out. Yann’s pragmatism and the vision of his proposal mean that the project is currently being developed with various different professionals. "
