For renters, finding a place in London is tough. The under-supply of accommodation leads to fierce bidding wars, which can drive up the price—a lot! Besides the hike in prices, people looking for a home to rent in London have a hard time interacting with landlords and agents. Existing platforms do not provide an effective means of communication. It is equally difficult to get authentic reviews from previous tenants on properties, or to see photos that accurately reflect the condition of a property. All of these issues can make the job of finding a place to rent in London very difficult.
Frustrated because he couldn’t find a place to rent, Danny Hoffman created a directory listing service that helps people locate apartments and homes for rent. The new site, called Find My Hive, allows people to post lists of houses, flats and apartments they want to rent while giving people a platform to search for those places.
“I was struggling to find the right place some months back,” explained Danny Hoffman, the CEO of Find My Hive. “Landlords and agents were not replying to my messages on other platforms, also the images are almost always not what the property is about and I can’t communicate with people who previously visited to ask for real feedback, instead of wasting time. This drove me to found my website. Our services have helped people throughout London list, find, and rent properties.”
With Find My Hive, landlords, tenants, and real estate agents will be able to connect and interact with each other. Everyone who has a space to rent can post the property on Find My Hive to attract tenants. The platform allows tenants and landlords to share reviews of their experiences for better user experience. Users can book viewings through the website, call a landlord, tenant, or agent through WhatsApp from the platform.
Another feature of Find My Hive that is worthy of note is that landlords will be able to rate the conducts of previous and current tenants on their properties. Estate agents and landlords will have access to tenants profiles including employment status, wage, occupation, age, and so on. Find My Hive is an innovative platform providing automated processes for rentals in the London real estate market for all parties. No matter their age, gender, or social status—including members of the LGBTQ community—Find My Hive will prove useful to everyone.
