Avalon is a location based mobile application that allows users to easily locate affordable & subsidized housing in their immediate area.
Users will be able to locate:
Voucher based rental housing (Section 8)
Subsidized (Public Housing Authority Systems)
Temporary (Homeless and Domestic Abuse)
Housing for individuals with special needs
An additional component will be using proprietary algorithms that identify specific conventional rental housing that is within the median incomes of the population of that area. Users will be able effectively locate and save housing, contact property managers, as well as utilize some of the educational housing related resources the application will provide. Our hope is to provide a invaluable resource for the underserved rental in order for them to efficiently locate and secure housing that meets their particular criteria. In the future we plan on partnering with city and local municipalities in order to become for them to incorporate our application into their systems in order to assist in the management of these properties in order for Avalon to become a public utility. Avalon will be primarily a mobile app for IOS and Android and will eventually roll out to a web service for users who don't have smartphones. We plan on Avalon being the future of affordable housing in America.
