HouseME, a new mobile web portal is the first to launch in South Africa with an online auction mechanism where landlords can receive bids on their rental properties from prospective tenants eager to secure their ideal accommodation. Through its growing database of registered users, HouseME also offers tenant-rating scores to give landlords peace of mind, while promoting ideal tenant conduct through a novel incentive scheme.
In desirable areas like the Cape Town Southern Suburbs and Stellenbosch, for example, where large student communities are looking for private accommodation, there are additional issues that HouseME aims to remedy. “Tenants come from all over the country and don’t always have the means to view properties before they arrive, which is why we verify every property listed and provide up-to-date photographs on our system, at no cost,” says Shaw.
Landlords often experience anxiety about the quality of tenants they attract, and the condition their property will remain in.

- Reduced expenditure on letting fees
