  • RoomBug, US-based roommate matching service that operates via Facebook, has changed its name to RoomSync. “RoomSync describes what we do, which is syncing up roommates who are compatible in close living environments,” the company says. RoomSync says it is now being used by over 20 universities and has recently added a top roommate recommendations engine and academic major and residence hall preference options.
  • The first certified homes assessed under New Zealand’s new Homestar residential rating tool were unveiled at an event supported by realestate.co.nz.

Homestar certified properties for sale will now have their ratings featured on realestate.co.nz.
  • Point2′s newest partner is diyresolutions.com, which added listing syndication to its property management software solution offering to its clients this week.

Point2 says this gives users exposure to millions of additional prospects online at no added cost.
