Ideal Housemate Limited provides internet-based real estate services. The company operates as a flatmate matching platform. Ideal Housemate offers an application where the customers can register and meet up with the ideal flatmate and secure the place. Ideal Housemate serves customers in the United Kingdom.
In a crowded and expensive real estate UK market, the customer had the idea of developing a web application based on an algorithm that creates and matches tenants’ and landlords’ profiles in order to help them find the best deal.
The idea of a flatmate is more and more common among the new generation therefore in this project CustomSoft had the opportunity to develop a web application based on an algorithm created and provided by the customer.
In this application, the users can list a property or search for a property to rent.
The matching process is based on a survey every user has to complete when signs up in the platform.
The landlord can:
- Add property;
- Set the property details;
- Add photos of the room she or he wants to rent;
- Set the ideal flatmate criteria such as age range, pets, smoker/non-smoker and so on.
Tenants can search property without signing in the app, but they have to sign in if they want to see the details or to book a room. They can search a room based on several criteria (filters) and can share a favorite room/property with his favorite housemates.
The app is integrated with several well-known payment methods in order to help the users to pay/collect the rent.
By developing this application, the customer manages to ease the process of looking for a room to rent or for a house mate in the case of the landlords.
