This That

Finding your future home is typically a process where we pick multiple options and eventually choose the home based on factors that are most important to you. How might we improve the apartment hunting process for students on campus so that they can make a decision they’re happy with within a single platform?

This That is a platform that allows students to find, compare and decide on their perfect home. While improving upon already popular platforms to create a more user-friendly interface, three pain points were defined through research on the primary user group to further understand their frustrations and needs which were the lack of transparency and trust, and the need to compromise. This addresses these by offering unique value propositions such as a community star rating system, customizable spreadsheets, neighborhood guides, the ability to create your own roommate group and connect to campus.

So what does your perfect home look like?

An image of a rounded rectangle with a background gradient of a darker shade of blue to a lighter shade of blue and has three rectangles centered. Each are shown as “apartment options” with titles/names Centennial Terrace, Deco at CNB and Shiplock Views. Each rectangle also contains further information for comparison like unit, price, sq ft., distance, rating, and availability below. Behind the rectangles, a plus sign is positioned in the top left, a square and overlapping yellow circle is positioned on the lower left, and a grid of small circles is positioned in the top right. Above the three rectangles, is a mock header of the website with the logo in white, This That, and Rent, Explore and Comparison. The profile and heart icons are also placed on the far right of the header. The bottom of the image has the slogan “Decide on your Perfect Home”.
