Trovit is a vertical search engine for classifieds in jobs, cars and real estate. It is the fifth property website in Spain (comScore, November 8), as well as a winner in the 2008 Red Herring and in the 2008 Eurecan.
Trovit is a specialised search engine for property, motor and job classifieds. It's present in twelve European and Latin American countries.
The Trovit name is derived from the Esperanto word for the verb "to find".
The Trovit logo:
The company was founded in late 2006 by Iñaki Ecenarro, Raúl Puente, Daniel Giménez and Enrique Domínguez, and backed by private investors. The first launch was Trovit Spain, on March 30, 2007, as well as Trovit UK. These sites have been followed by:
Trovit aggregates all relevant property, motor and job classified ads. Search results can be refined by applying filters that are specific to each vertical.
In the Homes vertical, Trovit is integrated with Google Maps to geolocate properties.
Users have the option to set up e-mail alerts or RSS feeds to be notified about new ads.

The Trovit search index is as precise and current as the data provided by its sources (portals and websites), and these depend on the data supplied by agents, recruiters and users. The quality of these results depends on the motivation of the estate agents to maintain the information current and detailed.
In some markets, such as Spain and Italy, the real estate market is based on non-exclusive contracts between sellers and estate agents. These agents try to avoid revealing the precise information about the property when they publish it on the Internet. In this case, Trovit cannot geolocate the properties precisely on the map.
In the job market the situation is very different, and in markets such as the UK the fragmentation is significant. Trovit can index thousands of offers thanks to its duplicate control system, giving the user a useful tool to find a job.
The motor market is linked to large internet directories and the access to dealers, the final sellers of the product, is very complicated.
