New Zealand-based Speedrenting is a roommate matching service that uses speed dating methods for those in need of housing or tenants.

The idea is simple: get together in a social situation and see if there's any roommate chemistry between those in need of a room and those with rooms to rent. Chicago and San Francisco meet though Flatmate Meetups and in London, it's FlatNightFever.

The groups have different on- and off-line services, but focus on social meetups as a key to speed renting bliss.
