In January, SpareRoom hit the magic number of three million. That’s how many registered users we have in our database, and the number is constantly rising. It’s just one of a number of landmarks we’ve passed recently, which go to show how we’re not complacent about our status as the UK’s favourite flatshare site. We’re constantly striving to improve the site and get the word out beyond our existing audience, so that you can benefit from a larger pool of prospective tenants and rooms to choose from. A big thank you to everyone who’s been part of the SpareRoom story so far, from landlords to agents, tenants and lodgers.
We surprised and delighted our 3 millionth registered user, by sending him a rather large cheque. Ryan Jackson signed up to search for a flatshare in Devizes, where he was moving to for a new job. We thought it fitting to give him £377 (the average rent inc bills for a double room in Devizes, according to the SpareRoom Rental Index). It turned out to be perfect timing as he’d just found somewhere to live.
