Right now, however, the situation is totally different. Kauppalehti tells in an article about Kojamo, that in the mid November 2018 over 7500 rental contracts had been done in the service.

“Already over 7500 rental contracts has been made in Lumo web store, when in June the number was 4000. On monthly basis about 30 % of all the new Lumo contracts and about 80% of contracts regarding to new houses are done online.”
Based on a quick calculation the speed is not quite up to 1000 contracts per month, but it is not much under it. All in all, the volume is around 100-200 rental contracts online every week. This can be considered a big number when it is about contracts of thousands of euros.
If someone is still doubting that the consumers are not ready to make bigger purchases based on the information on the Internet, it is time to rethink.

We don't sell coding or licenses
Many software companies recommend software solutions that they also implement themselves. We don’t do that. We don’t do software implementation projects or have partnerships with technology providers. Our perspective on the software market is broad, as it should be for our customers. Our goal is always to find the best possible software solution for our customer, whether it’s a custom-built solution, a SaaS service, an open-source platform, or a combination of these.
We are realistic and forward-thinking
We design digital service concepts, implementation methods and architectures that are sustainable and can be further developed. We place great importance on the feasibility of software solutions, the availability of good partners and the predictability of costs.
