Brock research study rental sectors in different countries

International students and new immigrants often face housing challenges due to a lack of credit history, but a Brock research partnership with Tenantcube founder Andrews Moses (MBA ’11), Brock Professor of Information Systems Anteneh Ayanso and Master of Science student Shodhanth Ramaswamy, aims to address this issue.

With funding from Mitacs, Ramaswamy examined rental sectors in different countries and researched other industry applications that use algorithms — such as those found in the online dating sector — to make recommendations based on particular features.

From that research, he came up with six attributes that, when rated highly, are perceived positively by prospective tenants and landlords. Users are able to rate the importance of each attribute using a numerical scale.

“The goal of the framework is to characterize tenants and landlords as entities with attributes beyond their ability to borrow and pay their debts,” says Ramaswamy. “By doing so, the framework acts as an intermediary that says, ‘this tenant or landlord would have the characteristics you’d like.’”

Preliminary results indicate the new system has great potential for use.
