We're aiming to be the best social roommate and rental platform in the world.

Renters login through Facebook, fill out a profile in less than 60 seconds, and are taken to a pool of potential roommates. Users swipe right on potential roommates who fit their roommate criteria. Our algorithm sorts users that best fit their criteria, first. Once you connect with a potential roommates you message that user to find out more.

RentHoop is available on iOS and Android phones.

If you're limiting our platform to just roommates - you're wrong. Over 67% of our users want to find apartments on our platform. With only 33% of our users belonging to the, "I have a room and I need to get it filled" category, there is a gap of users that will need to collaboratively find an apartment.

It's a blue-ocean strategy. Something that doesn't immediately generate revenue for behemoths like Zillow, Trulia and Apartments.com. However, the social aspect of finding a roommate, our young demographic of mos...

It's a blue-ocean strategy. Something that doesn't immediately generate revenue for behemoths like Zillow, Trulia and Apartments.com. However, the social aspect of finding a roommate, our young demographic of mostly 18-24 y.o., and the rental data we collect will allow us to swim into their territory with one side of our marketplace (renters) built out and flourishing.

Those things enable a sales/marketing organization to acquire landlords/property managers at a much lower cost than the typical firm that jumps into either A) rental advertising or B) selling commodities like rental payments.

This was my experience at a company called Porch.com, which sold advertising to contractors/home service providers. My innovative, data-driven sales approach was unique to any other salesperson. It's simply matching the needs of the demand with the supply. That's our strategy for acquiring listings and landlords' business.

This is where most people get lost, even though they shouldn't. The National Multihousing Council reports that "88% of apartment residents say that, if they were given the option, they would use the internet to look for an apartment AND fill out an application online - all before visiting the community."

Smaller landlords deal with over a $1 billion in rental applications (Average rental app, $40 multiplied by the 27 million renters who turn over each year). With access to consumers and a technology driven demographic, we are in a unique position to bridge the gap between renters and landlords during the rental process.

So from a users' perspective, we've streamlined your entire rental process. From a landlords' perspective, we're finding and processing the best tenants.
