Short Summary

We’re a group of graduate design students at California College of the Arts engaging in a business of design course. The course emphasizes learning through doing; so, we ideate, create, and develop a conceptual business for the whole semester. Our team has created Diggit, the friendly open house finder, a tool that simplifies the housing search to its most essential tasks. We want to help the thousands (even millions) of people who are searching for a new home by making the experience simpler. By prioritizing search results by real-time open house listings and by location, Diggit allows users to gain a better understanding of their neighborhoods and the relative space; due to the way Diggit shows these results, users would also gain insight into other open houses they were not aware of previously.

Our goal is to reach a minimum of 500 votes to show support for our business; a vote can be $1 or more, but the important part is the number of people who resonate with our concept.

What We Need & What You Get


Our business of design class has been separated into several groups; all of us are competing to get support for our business ideas. How do we calculate the support? Donations! A $1 will bring one vote and our goal is $500. If you like our idea, Diggit, please show your support and donate. In return, you will receive our appreciation and a thank you email. The funds will be going to Architecture for Humanity, a nonprofit that focuses on design solutions for global social and humanitarian crises.


The Impact


Diggit compiles its listings from other online resources including Craigslist and PadMapper. It is a smart app free to users but comes with a premium upgrade so users can access more listings and features. Diggit also helps users organize the listings they’ve visited, contacted, and liked.
