Bayut.com is a Dubai-based property portal and a privately owned company. Bayut operates in all seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah). Over the years, the company has gained a solid ground in UAE's online real estate space.
Bayut was founded in 2008 by the brothers Zeeshan and Imran Ali Khan, following their success with Zameen.com in Pakistan. Their elder brother Haider Ali Khan remained a strategy adviser to Bayut in its initial years but in 2014 he took up the role of company CEO full-time, following 20 years of experience with global giants such as Goldman Sachs, Silicon Labs and National Instruments. In 2015, Bayut.com gained additional investors in order to expand into other Gulf states. In 2015, Bayut welcomed industry leaders SeLoger CEO Roland Tripard and Mitula Group Chairman Simon Baker — who has previously headed the REA Group as well as iProperty Group — into its team. In April 2016, Bayut.com participated in the International Property Show organised by Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions in Dubai.
