Brock University researchers have partnered with the local property management company Tenantcube to develop a novel framework for landlord-tenant matchmaking. Together, the partners helped international students secure housing, recognizing that new immigrants often struggle to find accommodation options without an established credit score. Brock and Tenantcube subsequently developed a new analytics-driven rental service app where tenants and landlords rate the importance of different aspects of the rental relationship, including cleanliness and prompt communication. Tenants are then “˜matched’ with the landlords that best align with their values. This new system is expected to be used by Tenantcube by the end of the year.
