This project includes the documenting and collecting of requirements for the Rentie Application. I noticed in the last couple of years Ireland, and especially Dublin have run into a student-housing crisis. Not only are students up against workers trying to find accommodation, they’re up against the rising price of rent. A short term solution for the majority of students and workers fresh out of college has been to stay in a host home for five or seven days a week. Currently there isn’t an app similar to Rentie out there and available to students, the way you search for accommodation outside of college campus would be through property websites.

According to Ronan Lyons economist with property website “We can expect to see more of the same problems this year due to very tight supply, but students are flexible so they are packing more of themselves into each house”. In my opinion there is a big gap for this type of app in the market place, with more and more student’s attending college each year it’s not possible for the college campus to facilitate all students. The current price for rent in Dublin has been inflated in the last five years which will mean there's going to be student’s looking to save money in this area which in turn means a greater demand for the host. In my experience there’s a need for a general revamp of the housing process.
