P2P Housing

The process of finding a home becomes app-fueled

Implications - In a world inundated with digital solutions to real-life problems -- such as Tinder, Uber, or AirBnb -- the natural next step is that peer-to-peer, app-fueled model infiltrating big-ticket purchases. Housing is the next space rife for a digital upheaval to highlight ease and affordability of real estate, which is especially poignant in the face of rapid urbanization. This adds a touch of personification to an otherwise intimidating task that suits youth generations particularly well.

Workshop Question - What is one aspect of your product or service that could use a touch of personification? How would you implement that?
