Home remodeling platform Zillow Digs has grown significantly since its launch three months ago, Zillow reported today.

Users have posted nearly 34,000 photos and created more than 93,000 Digs boards, according to a Zillow blog post. That represents 165 percent growth since the app launched in early February, the listing site said.

Digs is a Pinterest-like platform that furnishes users with inspirations for remodeling projects, allowing them to post and comment on photos of projects as well as see estimates of them (known as Digs Estimates).

The platform resembles Houzz, serving as a destination for contractors and homeowners who wish to showcase their work. Houzz expanded its paid marketing service in March from 12 markets to 425, and added new analytics tools. Houzz’s Pro+ program enables subscribers to advertise their business profiles to site visitors who live in their markets.

As Digs matures, the platform could presumably offer similar advertising opportunities to professionals who use the site. Zillow already offers marketing services and tools to real estate agents.
