About The Client

Our client is an established name in the real estate industry, specializing in offering budgeted and luxury rented accommodation in Bengaluru (Bangalore) and other cities such as Hyderabad and Chennai. Through their various web and mobile applications, they provide:

  • Free property listings.
  • The best deals on PGs (paying guest accommodations).
  • Different occupancy options, including Single, Twin, Triple, and Multi-sharing.
  • Fully furnished homes.
  • Brokerage-free transactions.
  • Only a 1-month security deposit.

Problem Statement

The high cost of living in major cities like Bangalore can pose significant challenges for newcomers, particularly students, who struggle to find affordable accommodations with basic hygiene standards and pleasant living conditions. Additionally, some paying guest (PG) accommodations are poorly maintained or managed, raising safety and security concerns.

To tackle these issues, there arose a need to address these concerns and offer a comprehensive solution that provides affordable, hygienic, and brokerage-free PG options in one place.

Project Objective

The idea was to build a mobile app that would provide a hassle-free PG hunting experience, saving users a lot of time and money. The app would also offer an automated platform for PG owners to help them with listing properties, collecting rent, managing tenant records, and managing properties and rooms.


As per the client's requirements, the app was meant to have real-time data broadcasting and notification services. Since the application involved two managed interfaces, one for the listers or property owners and the other for the PG seekers, the application had various technical and performance challenges.

The software for PG owners must be accurate in archiving the data and information.
It should be scalable in terms of traffic load and listings.
It should provide safe financial transactions between the owners and the tenants.
A few sensitive functions, such as management of credits, refunds, tenant verification, etc., demanded the use of accurate calculations of standalone as well as dependent variables of the applications.
