“We’ve built several strong content-led platforms such as PropIndex, OpenHouse, Gurutalk etc. Creating another section where we could aggregate property news, expert opinion and analysis of property trends was a natural extension of this process. We’ve therefore revamped and rebranded our content section as Property Pulse; and we will leverage our media reach and research strengths to make this section as the largest and most credible source of Property news and analysis” said Sudhir Pai, MagicBricks.com’s Business Head.
