@Isabelle_Roznik yes any app that scores a potential guest could be a great tool. As a host, I would use it to vet guests.
I notice your ask is about an app that compiles only what’s publicly available about someone online… and not private info the guest authorizes the release or scoring of. To be honest, most of what I’d find valuable is the standard background and credit check type of info that long-term landlords screen for. Yet some other reasonable assumptions can be derived just from the subtleties of publicly available online info as well.
As a disclaimer, this is not legally verified advice… I’m not sure how any of this complies and fits within a non-discrimination or another legal context relating to disclosure and use of info etc…
In any case, here are some things I think hosts may like seeing in an app like this… in order to mitigate risk and select guests that will be a great match for and happy with their home:
- employment status and professional level
- level of social online and offline connectedness
- level of travel-savviness
- type of traveler - mostly business or leisure
Happy to elaborate more… also have a few ideas on how and where some of the above info could be obtained online. Feel free to private message me if you’d like to chat further.
