Renting can be a chore – dealing with landlords and property agents can be slow, and not everyone can pay expensive deposits and other hidden fees.

Resooma, on the other hand, is an online platform that wants to make renting as easy as buying anything else online. It claims to have cut down the process from searching to signing from days to just twenty minutes.

Founded in 2019 by Daniel Jeffreys and Jack Jenkins, Resooma makes use of technology such as e-contracts and VR to help renters find their perfect home and sign forms in minutes rather than months. You can even add utilities and split bills using Resooma – which should help quell feuding housemates.

This use of tech makes Resooma a hit with young people who are used to next-day deliveries and on-demand content. And, with 16-25 year olds being the most likely to rent, it seems as if the sky's the limit for Resooma.

Operating with a SaaS model, listing properties is completely free on Resooma, and nor does it take money from renters. Instead, the company charges B2B clients for each successful transaction. It also uses a commission service to charge for complementary services such as utility and insurance management.

There are more than 200,000 empty houses in Britain and Resooma’s hoping its simple end-to-end service will be able to fill them – one room at a time, if needs be.
