Finding a new home is always a hassle. The renter would have call multiple agents and the viewings often span over days to a week. Homie tries to change that process for the renter by being the single point of contact for the renter while organises everything else behind the scene.
Adding value to the search functionality everybody knows
Having a map is great, but it only really benefits those who know London well. After testing with a focus group we found that having Commute Search is what’s missing. It allows the user to discover properties and areas that might have been dismissed otherwise.
