Dating websites and applications like Tinder are a common way for people to search for potential partners, but what if you could search for a place to live in the same way?

Along with Internet Lister Service (ILS) information and reviews, users can input personal preferences like diversity and commuting options for the program to use to find the most suitable area from the 289 in its database.
