Ideal Flatmate is an online platform that helps flathunters in London to connect with flatmates and secure the perfect listing. The service analyzes users for things like sociability, cleanliness, budget, and more to prevent people from having to bunk up with complete strangers as a last ditch effort to lock down a living space.

To carry out its renter analysis, Ideal Flatmate takes users through various questions and scenarios. These include things like "I tend to go out to meet friends, socialize or network most evenings" or "I don't mind if my flatmates invite friends to our house, as long as they give me notice," and users rate these statements on a sliding scale.

Considering that the majority of Millennials living in urban areas plan on renting for the foreseeable future, Ideal Flatmate is a valuable service.
