Empower, Educate Renters

Rent Smarter empowers you to become a more knowledgeable renter with our rental affordability calculator, rental checklist, and virtual assistant.

Whether you are a new or experienced renter, Rent Smarter has educational tools to empower you to be a smarter renter.

Key features include:

AFFORDABILITY CALCULATOR goes beyond the typical rent calculator (although we have that too) and walks you through:
• Gross Income
• % of Income to allocate to your rent
• Monthly Payroll Deductions (Net income)
• Monthly Debts
• Monthly Expenses (allows for itemization)
• Monthly Savings

CHECKLIST has “What you need to know” all in one place including things to “Ask yourself” and “Ask the landlord” for key stages when you’re:
• Looking
• Signing
• Moving in
• Moving out

VIRTUAL ASSISTANT can answer questions at any stage during the rental process and is available 24x7. Need to learn more about a term you see in Rent Smarter? Ask the Virtual Assistant a question in your own words, such as: “What is a concession on a lease agreement?” Don’t see the answer to your questions today, check back because the Virtual Assistant is always learning and adding new content.

Straight to the point

Really appreciated how easy this is to navigate and understand what I can and can’t afford. The calculator is awesome, telling my other friends who rent about it.
