A proptech start-up has launched a ‘dating service’ for tenants, agents and landlords in London.

Krispyhouse says its ‘next generation’ property listing platform app will be a rival to firms such as Rightmove and Zoopla, with a cheaper offering.

It is claimed the service will simplify London’s ‘chaotic rental market’, and after successful testing, has generated interest from more than 200 agents and several thousand tenants.

Personal details

The new app offers direct messaging, video and voice calling between tenants and intermediaries, enabling tenants to upload personal details and requirements for free, and notifies them when a well-suited property becomes available. Following expressions of interest, the tenant and agent or landlord can quickly connect.

Unlike leading competitors who require the use of personal mobile numbers, all communications are made entirely within the Krispyhouse app.

Lower charge

With leading competitors charging from £700 to £900, Krispyhouse distinguishes itself through its free download and lower charge of £100 per month.

It offers individuals letting properties access to a fully integrated CRM system, instant communication, and unlimited advertising.

Anthony Kyriacou, CEO and founder of krispyhouse (main picture), first made plans for the platform when examining the current market offerings in his role as an estate agent and property expert.

Krispyhouse allows renters, landlords and estate agents to ‘get a move on’.”

Krispyhouse, which soft launched last year, has now started a funding round through CrowdCube, inviting early investors to participate in the company’s journey.

Kyriacou says: “Krispyhouse allows renters, landlords and estate agents to ‘get a move on’, with an easier and quicker way to manage housing communications.

“We are excited to have launched our funding round on CrowdCube, to support our growth and ambition to offer a UK wide service.”
