The amount invested in Softbank-backed Housing.com was not disclosed.

Singh, who is presently co-founder of Buildczar.com, scripted growth of 99Acres.com and Naukri.com from startups to scaled companies.

"On board as a personal investor, Vineet will also serve as a senior advisor to the company working closely with the management team. We believe that his association will further fuel the ambitious growth plans of Housing.com," said Housing.com CEO Jason Kothari.

In January, SoftBank had made a fresh investment of Rs 100 crore in Housing.com to help the realty portal consolidate its position in the heavily contested online property segment.
