"We designed and built the matching engine to do just this -- help apartment hunters find their perfect apartment in a way that's both fast and fun."
The Apartment List matching engine identifies the most predictive questions by tracking if a user views a recommended listing, adds it to his/her preferred list, or contacts the rental owner. In this way, it was determined that "Do you watch Dancing with the Stars?" is the fastest and most effective way to predict a user's apartment matches. Other questions asked by the matching engine include: "Do you have money in the stock market?" and "What would be your super power?"
"Now the first question asked of all new users to the site will be whether they watch Dancing with the Stars," added Kobs.
