This app saved us thousands of dollars a month!

We learned of a renters law that we had no idea about and sure enough our landlord was attempting something in the article. Well we looked up the law in our state, brought it up after receiving a 30% increase renewal and then silence for weeks. We thought we were doomed, and we figured they would find some loophole. Well the next email we received had the appropriate increase, saved us thousands a month from an insane increase.

This app could be so useful and so needed after covid, but needs to get information from real renters, not just leasing brokers. The truth needs to be known so our cities can recover and tenants can stop being taken advantage of. We can reward the good landlords and empty out the ones taking advantage of us. Thank you!!! Please keep finding the truth and getting helpful information into the hands of regular people and ask for reviews so more renters have helpful information!

Thank God for This App

We gotta thank Instagram for all of its ads because I’m so impressed with the quality of products I’m finding. This app is one.

As a 23 year old who has had to move over 45 times in life, the one thing I would’ve appreciated having is genuine reviews of property AND neighborhood. Over 20 of those 45 properties were Airbnb units, and let’s be honest, none are true to reality. Most places I’ve lived in were infested with bugs and mold but not one review ever noted it. The owner can always claim I’m lying on the reviews then the case is closed. And of course the other factor of neighborhood — something that most people don’t think to review about. Apps like this one is the reason we can get truthful reviews.

I’m excited to leave reviews for all 45+ places I’ve lived in (if I remember the exact address) because people deserve to know the truth about the neighbors, neighborhood, the property itself, and other important factors in enjoying a temporary or long-term stay.

Edit Upon More Use: what would be nice is if the app lets us label the place we were living in (e.g. rented off Airbnb, college dorm, etc) and allowing us to provide a description. It’d add context to the pros and cons.

Love That This Exists—- finally!!!!

Openigloo is amazing. It’s such a fantastic resource to help find the ideal, safe, comfortable, best places to live. I also love that they help tenants know about their rights - tenants have soooo many rights that get trampled on or go unknown and this resource is helping to educate and exercise these rights! After everything, it’s also great to see that there are actually some good landlords out there - they do exist! Tenants should not have to endure poor treatment, neglect or any unfairness. This app and resource is really important and I can’t wait to see it expand to other cities as well. It helps make life better.
