Too many scammers, fake listings
I'm giving this app a 2-star b/c it's user friendly, it's easy for you to see what are the new listings for today from the units you've seen few days before (the house icon changes color once you've seen/reviewed it). But there's a lot of fake listings. Beware of people who say they're on "missionary work" in "Nevada/Africa/UK" I'm telling you're they're all scams. They would usually ask for security deposit & let you wire it thru western union/money order. Stay away from those so-called homeowners. I've experienced somebody claimed that house as his own, he said he's a pastor who's now in OH. He even sent us a pic of himself and his wife. White people. But when we talked to them, they couldn't even speak straight English. They were stuttering.. And of course they didn't sound like white people, not being a racist here, but they sounded like Jamaican/Nigerian. So yea, just beware and upon downloading this app, make sure to read the "how to prevent scam" it is absolutely helpful.
A lot of fake listings
There should be more strict review of listings.... I have sent requests on many properties only to find out that there is some guy who types broken English telling me how he's out of the state or country with a completely American name by the way and he is normally married and on a spiritual retreat or helping some poor country and wants me to send him the deposit and he will send me the keys.... He always tries to confirm that you are ready to move in and always suggest you view the house from the outside.... The photos are from homes that are listed for sale currently and sometimes it is from previous years.... They need to block these people and now they are using google voice so they have a local number for you to call and they will even text you
Great tool for renters
I have this app on my iPad and iPhones. Works great and easy to use. Very easy to find places that are available in whatever area I am looking in while offering lots of great information about the surrounding area. I would give it a 5 out of 5 but there are still those Craigslist type questionable properties that seem to be and usually are scams. If they had a way of providing verification that properties are legit that would be awesome, until then be very cautious.
