Finding an apartment to share in New York City can be an awful process; something that I had the chance to experience first-hand. Dredging through incomplete and bogus ads on Craigslist was only half the battle. Interviewing potential roommates and searching for apartments together became a job in itself, one so laborious, I nearly found myself out on the street after coming down to the wire of an expiring lease.
This is something I see as a truly troublesome process, without any real solution in place. And with that acknowledgement came my recognition of an opportunity to create a better system for finding housing. This project represents more than just a venture into the dry industry of real-estate. Rather it's a real chance to address a palpable problem that plagues the common, low income resident (especially young adults.)
