A social network for property hunting has launched a Tinder-type property match feature that gives users the power to swipe yes or no on real estate listings.

Soho launched the new feature on four weeks ago and CEO Jonathan Lui said the number of swipes has grown 30 times.

He predicts at this pace, it could overtake traditional search in the first quarter of 2020.

“It turns out Tinder-style swiping is actually the best way to look at property. It saves you time and stress, whether you are buying or renting,” Mr Lui said.

The mobile app allows buyers and renters swipe right to bookmark a listing they like, swipe left on listings they don’t like, and swipe up or down to put a property on their ‘maybe’ list.

Users can also tap or click on the property to see the full listing details and all the photos.
