Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Post a Pad, the latest addition to the PadMapper mobile app that allows anyone to rent a room or sublease an apartment.
I’ve got three reasons why this is one of the best things to happen to apartment hunting in a while. First off, everyone can now safely post rooms and apartments for rent without being a professional landlord or having to worry about the scams and shenanigans that happen on other sites. Further, anyone looking to rent an apartment or room will have access to more listings than ever, including a larger variety of shared accommodations and sublets at different price points. And finally, all of this can be done directly from your phone.
But wait, there’s more…
Now, you can kiss questionable listings goodbye because we’ve created a proprietary security algorithm to combat spam and scams. It’s already hard at work protecting you with a combination of machine learning and community moderation to make sure that only high-quality, legitimate listings are posted.
Hop to it
Posting a pad takes as little as 60 seconds and you can post a private or shared room, entire apartment, or rental home to both PadMapper and Zumper without opening your laptop. While your room or sublet will appear on both the web and mobile search results, posting can only be done from the PadMapper app for now. Try it out:
- Download or update the PadMapper app on your iOS or Android phone.
- Click the “Post” tab on the bottom menu.
- Enter your listing details and snap photos.
Once verified via Facebook login and our security algorithm, your listing will go live to millions of renters on PadMapper and Zumper. Done and done. Happy posting!
