Organize apartment hunting
I'm already running a small enterprise SaaS product (haven't posted it on IH yet though), but these days I'm coming up with moonshot ideas that I could code to keep things interesting.
Let me know if this is interesting or if it's shit:
When looking to make a decision purchase (speaking of consumers here), the internet has become a shitshow: annoying ads everywhere, sponsored search results, affiliate links, false reviews, too many choices...
I'm thinking of a simple and calm platform where you choose the product category you're looking into (eg. laptops), choose a budget range, select attributes/specs you're looking for and finally tell the platform what are your priorities with that product (eg. CPU for gaming or slick design). Then, the platform returns the products in a clean and minimal layout with the 5-10 products that best fit your query and details for each of those (visually, as badges).
No affiliate links, no ads, just a transparent view of what your options are. So it's essentially not a new way to buy, it's a new way to shop.
The community would be updating the products by "reviewing" what they already own (eg. is laptop XYZ really noisy? y / n).
And of course, it would be free.
