A contextual home search feature from RentalRoost, the lifestyle-based home and rental search engine, was highlighted online this week by Network World, a leading provider of information, intelligence and insight for network and IT executives.
NetworkWorld.com’s spotlight, “8 DEMO Traction Products You Have to See,” featured RentalRoost’s “Facebook Recommendations” feature, which automatically aggregates a user’s Facebook data in their search results.
Part of the long-running DEMO conference, DEMO Traction is a new conference focused obsessively on growth by connecting the most promising growth startups with prospective customers, investors and strategic partners. The invite-only event, which wrapped up Wednesday in San Francisco this week, is, according to the site, “for startups solving problems using cutting edge technology who are exhibiting traction or on the cusp of a major growth spurt.”
“We’re excited to be featured among such a dynamic group of startups,” says Nitin Shingate, CEO and co-founder of RentalRoost.
In Network World’s article, the writer notes, “After finding it difficult to identify some of the most important factors of a new home while using the traditional online search methods, the creators of RentalRoost made a service where buyers can find potential homes that fit their needs. RentalRoost users can find specific details on potential homes, such as those that are both pet-friendly and walkable, for example. The site can also import a user’s Facebook information to suggest homes that align with their lifestyle.
