I love this app! I wish more people used it. (Small UI issue tho)

I absolutely love this app. It’s my favorite one to use on looking at rental properties in my area because some of the more unique places show up here. I’m not a big fan of the typical apartment complexes, I like living in a place with a little more character and there’s always fun places listed on this app to consider. I wish more people knew about this app and used it to list their properties.

UI Issue: on the 11” iPad the panel on the right side of the app is not sized correctly. This panel shows the details of the properties you’ve clicked on and contains the text fields used to contact the property owners so it’s pretty important but currently only about 70% of it is visible. Hopefully something that can be addressed on the next update 👍🏻

I normally do not write reviews but I must say HotPads is a GOD SENT app ! Not only does it help you find your dream apartment but it also has a great network between landlords and potential tenants. Before I discovered HotPads, i had a job relocation to Seattle and I was stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to look for an apartment. I also had went to housing court due to my former apartment complex failing to fix many maintenance issues & having a judgement on your record can be stressful but nonetheless, TRUST me when I tell you, THERE IS HOPE. THIS APP GIVES YOU HOPE. It’s very detailed, landlords let you know what they are looking for and as long as you find something you can work with, they’ll work with you. Long behold, I found a condo in Seattle that was SUPER CONVENIENT to everything including stores and public transportation. I wish I could’ve stayed longer but my job relocated my to California so I’m on the search for my next apartment on this app. I recommend this app to all my friends & they can’t stop thanking me for telling them. To the creators of hotpads, thank you very much for giving people like me a second chance to live comfortably and find a place I can call home. ❤️😊

This company allows fraud

It’s bad enough that over 90% of the listings have the incorrect prices on them. I don’t know where they’re generating the info from but any leasing agent can tell you that they don’t work with them. If you’re trying to find a roommate on here good luck finding someone who isn’t a scammer. It’s nice that they have a report button but they don’t seem to act on any of the reports. There’s so many sketchy people on there they don’t even sound legit for one second yet they’re allowed to keep their listings active on this app. There is one listing from years ago that is on there every day still and it is definitely a scam -how do I know because I was there. Just another business that takes no responsibility for the content it advertises. Be wary when dealing with anyone through this app.
It’s too bad because the app has a nice design and it’s easy to use. But hardly any of the people you contact will contact you back. And again it doesn’t matter because most of the information is either missing or incorrect.
