Clean, Information-Rich Design
HomeRate was designed to solve a problem we had encountered ourselves: the unreliability of housing information provided by landlords and estate agents. To that end, the interface packs in the essential information students need when house-hunting, whilst remaining easy to navigate. Every feature, from browsing properties to posting a new review, is designed to be easily discoverable.
Google Maps Integration
One of the most essential pieces of information when house-hunting as a student is the commute time to your university. The vast majority of housing websites do not display this metric when browsing properties, so we took it upon ourselves to build this key feature into HomeRate using the Google Maps Distance Matrix API.
