This is traditionally a very bumpy process. Originally, you would need to reach out to an agent who would take you around your town and show you a series of places.
Once you pick a place, you would need to submit paper applications and a deposit in the amount of first months rent + security.
Once you place these applications in the agent's hands, he will send out a lease that you and your co-signers sign through an E-signature platform.
Then your home is leased.
Rent Beetle streamlines the whole rental process from top to bottom. Through this platform, you have the ability to choose which places you want to see, submit applications and a deposit online, and lease your space all from the comfort of your home.
We aim to assist you and your roommates in being the first to submit applications and deposits for homes that you want to rent out.
NOPE! This platform is 100% free to use for students/tenants.
Depends, do you like paying the price you were advertised, seeing the places only you want to see, and getting this process over within a matter of hours? If yes to any of these questions, then yes, this is the platform for you!
In our experience at Rent Beetle, we have always been able to find our clients a place to stay. There might be a few places in the area that are must haves but generally, rentals are abundant.
Now with Rent Beetle, you can have a relaxed process knowing that if you see a place you like, you just secure it on Rent Beetle no problem!
Of course you can! Our listings are open to anyone who wants to rent a space out and always available for anyone to snag them!
If you are currently employing an agent, Rent Beetle will compensate them fairly so this is never an issue.
Chances are, they do not have credit card processing, online applications, and automatic leasing technology so no. This is not true.
You are more than welcome to email Rent Beetle but the fastest way to get answers to your questions is to ask the agent who is showing you the home through our text chain.
Yes, these leases are 100% binding. Once we have all the signatures (landlord included) the lease is in effect.
The money is sent directly back to you and your roommates within 7 Business days. These funds are held in what the Real Estate world calls an “escrow account” and cannot be processed until proof of lease and paperwork.
Once a rental is processed, it immediately goes “dark.” It will not appear in our feed.
