Homie, a property marketplace, has reportedly scored $23m in a funding round as it looks to expand its presence across the US.

The startup, which currently support Arizona and Utah, is looking to move into several US states this year including Nevada, Texas, Colorado, Idaho, Washington and Tennessee, according to various reports in the media.
