Mr. Nitin and Nilesh Shingote’s Inspiration behind PropCheckup

According to Nitin, it was a dream come true when he and Nilesh (Co-founder) established PropCheckup. Right from college, they both had a dream of starting their own business. There is an interesting backstory on how PropCheckup was conceived as a startup idea. Nitin is a Civil Engineer and Nilesh was in Graduation days. While working on the site, Nitin used to get many queries relating to the quality of the ready to move property after the completion of the project. Hence, they thought of starting a service that can resolve the buyer’s queries as it was non-prevalent at that time. After a few months, they came up with a startup that acted as a mediator between the property developer and the buyer for the Quality related issues.

The awareness regarding home inspection is lacking in the Indian market. The rate of a home inspection is quite low as compared to developed countries like the USA, Canada, and Dubai, where 80% of home buyers go for home inspection due to high Home Inspection awareness in those regions.
