Bold advertising took 1 day

I purchase bold advertising each time I use SpareRoom and I’ve been running a three bed longterm lodging house for a long time. I have never had everyone move out within a month before. This time with SpareRoom within 24hrs I had 7 viewings booked, 6 for my next available day off. I turned one away at the door as I felt they’d mislead me via email, but had four fantastic options from the others that turned up. Three are now signing contracts (with ID and NI proof) to stay; with holding deposits in place for my peace of mind.
Brilliant site helped me improve my home and ongoing life for all of £25.
Thanks SpareRoom you’ve relieved a great weight.

Add Points to Adverts

App & website.
Luck/Kudos Points to Profiles & Adverts

Receive points that rank up your desirability for both people looking for a room and flatmates.

This can work for both really well. Instead of just having ’new’ and ‘new today’ adverts. People that pay can have their popularity shown.
On the map their house pin can go from blue for recently added to green really popular.

People looking for a room, their ad’s can be filtered by popularity. They receive kudos or luck* points from landlords/tenants after a viewing.

These points can only be received if both people giving and receiving them have messaged each other or have both click the ‘interested’ in each other.


It can help sell rooms that might not even of been looked at on the maps because it was just outside of the area a potencial tenants were looking.

And helps landlord/flatmates choose the right people to arrange for viewings based off the hundreds of messages they receive.

Helps people looking for a room that just aren’t getting lucky even though they’re trying really hard and have been looking for months, this helps them have their hard work shown for the efforts. But only if they aren’t twats.

Again this feature is only available to people who pay. You can still receive kudos/luck points if you don’t pay, you just don’t get the ability to see your own points and others.

Why do I have to input preferences EVERY search?

Firstly I think your apps great but I’m getting frustrated with it, particularly as I’m using the paid option.
My circumstances: I’m looking for a home in a certain ‘region’. There are towns within that region that I wouldn’t want and others more desirable so I search town by town. When I search for properties that consider pets, or perhaps I’m after non smoking I go into advance settings and select the applicable boxes. As soon as I select another town it deletes all my preferences - but I’m the same profile so my settings shouldn’t change. Am I missing something or does this need tweaking as it’s a nuisance when looking at different towns (or revisiting them) to have to go into the sun settings section every time and reselect the relevant options EVERY time? Thanks in advance for any help
