Hoamsy is a fully-integrated, one-stop-shop moving platform focused on guidance and curation. We guide a user to their optimal choice of roommates, apartments, logistic options, new furniture and more. We focus on transforming a user's typically disjoint and difficult moving process into a series of easy, interconnected steps.

Our platform focuses on guiding students and young professionals to through their ideal moving customer journey when it comes to moving. Oftentimes, this demographic lacks the location specific knowledge and process know-how to effectively curate their options when it comes to moving, especially if they are coming from a different city. After all, how would you know the difference between Fenway and Backbay if you’re from NYC? What does a “good” roommate mean for you? This leads students and young professionals to bad solutions, like paying thousands of dollars to a broker to help, or asking strangers on the internet for advice. Hoamsy solves this problem...

Our platform focuses on guiding students and young professionals to through their ideal moving customer journey when it comes to moving. Oftentimes, this demographic lacks the location specific knowledge and process know-how to effectively curate their options when it comes to moving, especially if they are coming from a different city. After all, how would you know the difference between Fenway and Backbay if you’re from NYC? What does a “good” roommate mean for you? This leads students and young professionals to bad solutions, like paying thousands of dollars to a broker to help, or asking strangers on the internet for advice. Hoamsy solves this problem, using proprietary algorithms, 1 on 1 chats, blogs, and more to curate options and educate our users, not just at one step, say apartments, but every step of the way.

Hoamsy currently facilitates both roommate and apartment matching. The two sides are Residents and Landlords. Residents can go on the platform and match to other Residents as roommates as well as apartments based on their preferences. They can also list an open room in their apartment, matching to other Residents who are looking for rooms. Landlords are currently able to post multiple listings on the site that will then be presented to Residents whom they fit. The platform also includes free messaging so anyone can communicate freely, as well as guide blogs where we post helpful articles designed to answer questions and provide our advice on the moving process. Lastly, there is also a 1-on-1 chat where users are able ask us for personalized advice.

As Hoamsy continues to grow we intend to further integrate steps of the moving process into the platform to be able to better facilitate a user’s complete moving journey.
