Dutch Renters Can Swap Houses With Each Other Using A Dating App Interface

With HuisjeHuisje, renters living in the Netherlands can match with other renters to see if the two parties would like to swap homes

Renters in the Netherlands who are interested in relocating to a new place can now sample different homes through an app called HuisjeHuisje, which translates to ‘little house’ times two. The platform functions similarly to a dating app, in that potential home swappers must mutually ‘like’ each other to match.

Instead of a person, a user profile shows a home and lists facts about it—how much it costs to rent, its size and the amount of rooms inside. If someone browsing through the app finds a rented home they feel they could move into they can hit the ‘like’ button. When two profiles have a match, the individuals residing in those locations can exchange information to learn more about each other’s residences and potentially swap.

The app was created by Pieter Schipper, who hoped to make it easier for young people to enter the Netherlands’s crowded rental market.
