In the summer of 2017, I was looking for a andelsbolig (housing cooperative) in Copenhagen, and so was a lot of other people. I quickly realized that the demand for a andelsbolig was huge. New ads were often deactivated shortly after creation because sellers received a storm of calls, emails and messages.
I signed up to various real estate’s email alerts, hoping that this would give me a lead on contacting the sellers. Unfortunately, the notification was usually received with a delay of anything from one hour to a day from when the ad was created. In a housing market where new ads can receive over 100 inquiries an hour, it was pointless to contact the seller after this delay.
That meant I only had one option left. To constantly refresh the real estate’s sites from my computer and mobile, hoping to discover new ads before everyone else. This approach was undoubtedly more effective than the email alerts, but there was a huge disadvantage. As a home seeker, you are not a robot. You have to eat, study, work and sleep like all other people. This meant I often missed new ads, despite the fact that I spent a lot of hours sitting in front of the computer continuously refreshing the websites.
After spending a lot of time refreshing home pages daily, I figured that there had to be a smarter way to do this. It did not make sense to update home pages like a robot, when I instead could automatize the process of apartment searching.
This is why I developed Robodove. The purpose of Robodove is to take over the tiresome part of the apartment search. A robot does not need to eat, study, work or sleep. Therefore, Robodove can search around the clock and discover new ads before everyone else.
Armed with Robodove, I went back to the Copenhagen housing market. I immediately noticed a significant head start in my apartment search. I was often the first to contact new ads. That meant I had a good talk with the seller and was invited to open house events. Another great advantage of Robodove was that I could spend time with friends, family and on work, rather than spending time constantly refreshing home pages.

As I have also written when I canceled my membership, I would like to say: great respect! You give everyone a fair chance at the Copenhagen housing market. I got a far greater number of invitations to see apartments than using the payment pages!

A month after the sign up, the perfect apartment appeared. The landlord was contacted, a showcasing was arranged and just a few days later the apartment was ours! If it had not been for Robodove, we would NEVER have found this apartment! Robodove can be clearly recommended!

"Robodove har været direkte medvirken til, at min kæreste og jeg endelig har fundet en lejlighed! Vi har netop underskrevet en købsaftale og kan nu blot læne os tilbage og glæde os til vores nye sted. Robodove giver dig muligheden for at se annoncer med-det-samme - uden hele tiden at skulle logge på fx DBA, Boliga mv. - som vi ellers har gjort i vores søgen efter drømmeboligen. Efter 2 år lykkedes det for os, og det var efter blot nogle få måneders brug af Robodove."
