Ratings and Reviews
Parking NOT included in rent!
Users of this site should be aware that some of the information in the description and amenities sections, as well as the price, are frequently wrong. I won't list all the the inaccuracies I have personally been made aware of, but 2 recent ones were particularly irritating. Both listed the price as gross when they were actually net effective. Fine for a one year lease, but alters the math on a 2 year or longer. The most irritating thing was that both listed parking as included in the rent. This was stated explicitly in both listings. Yet, one broker said that was information that was no longer accurate and updated on the feeder site weeks ago. The other broker says that was never accurate and that parking wasn't ever available. She added that, if it ever became available, it would be a rental space from another deeded spot and the apartment that HotPads claimed included parking did not have a deeded spot. Where did HotPads get that info?
I love the map function of HotPads, but you must confirm all of the information about the apartment you're looking at with the broker before you waste your time looking at an apartment that will cost hundreds of additional dollars a month on parking.
Roommates not accurate
Many apartments or condos for rent in resorts do not list roommate information. This must b thoroughly known before an ad is listed. I found a nice 2br apartment in Aspen for $2500 per month ... ok ... but was not inform on the add it was for a roommate. Thus, I cancelled the showing immediately and found 17 other ads around resort and towns especially in Colorado like the one I mentioned. Marketers who set up these ads need to insure the info is correct which many ads for apartments misguide future tenants. Also, it is ILLEGAL per Colo Statues to deny rent to someone with a guide dog ... federal and state law. Apartment Management can be heavily fined at both levels or even sued for denying this kind of service even when it says “No Pets Allowed” ... think people before having any ads of apartments posted! It might cost u more to list than u think. Know your fair housing act at both state and national (federal) levels.
Good for scouting locations, bad for scouting actual apartments
No matter what format are use for this website, what was most frustrating is that the majority of the site is taken up by a map of the area while only a fraction of the site is devoted to information regarding available apartments. Obtaining that information is rather cumbersome as there is a lot of clicking and scrolling down. And then if you want to actually print information regarding the availability of apartments you’re interested in, that’s an entirely new nightmare as you have to create new ways of capturing the screen so that you capture as much information as possible. It seems to be a cake a good site for scouting properties, but just not a useful site for actually finding one in closing a deal.
