Great ! Intuitive interface, quick lookups with useful filter set. A bit of an investment to pay for max coverage. $25 grants your ad in bold for 6 months- 3mos + a 3 month extension in case you still need it. Background check to verify your phone, email and criminal dings. $20 And if you run into a sketchy person during your search, customer support is excellent 👌🏽 Remember, never send money sight unseen to a property lister who won't show the property until you pay some crocked up fee.

I think the app is nice and it definitely shows more relevant rooms ads than the larger companies. My only complaint and it's not the fault of the app developers is the then landlords. It's clear some are older or have trouble with the language but they make it difficult to communicate and I've lost out on some great properties because of the lack of proper communication. Maybe they can add pre-made responses so that miscommunication stops happening.

This is useless.Nobody posting the ad/rm responds to my messages. Just because you upgrade doesn't mean they can message you back or will. Many ads are exp or no longer avail; they should be removed.What is the point of paying a premium If you get no results. Some of the filters are glitchy. Especially the radius and map filter. Also there is no way to call/ exch numbers, yet most ads are asking to call them? I found a few places I like in my budget but can't contact them.
