Since its launch in Seattle in 2006, Zillow has grown into one of the foremost powerhouses in the home-search industry. Its platform encompasses over 110 million homes across the United States and includes listings of all sizes, types, and price points. The platform strives to facilitate what it calls the “full lifecycle” of living in a home — from buying to selling to renting to financing and beyond.
Zillow’s leaders position the website as being “dedicated to empowering consumers with data, inspiration, and knowledge around the place they call home, and connecting them with the best local professionals who can help.” The site takes a data-driven approach to achieve this goal. It offers pinpointed “Zestimates” of how much a rental or home sale should reasonably cost, given its location, size, amenities, and other significant factors. Zillow also offers user-friendly maps to help aspiring renters contextualize a prospective home within its community.
Trulia was founded — and remains headquartered — in Mosser’s home city of San Francisco. However, the site has grown well beyond its local roots; today, the platform contains over a hundred million listings from across the country. Trulia’s efforts to connect home searchers with their dream rentals roots in a philosophy of neighborliness. As the tool’s leaders explain via its website, “We’re committed to helping them discover a place where they will love to live and where they will feel more connected to the community and to each other. It’s why we strive every day to help build a more neighborly world.”
Aside from its community-minded motto, Trulia sets itself apart from its competitors by conducting thorough research on every community it profiles. Trulia’s platform offers over 34 neighborhood map overlays to help searchers gain a more nuanced understanding of their prospective home. These maps provide crucial details on local school districts, crime reports, commute, and community offerings.
When platform co-founder and CEO, Anthemos Georgiades, built Zumper, he had one goal: to make renting a home as simple, speedy, and intuitive as possible. Rather than focusing solely on accumulating listings, Zumper prides itself on offering renters a positive and supportive home-search experience.
The platform provides virtual tours and allows aspiring renters to apply and put a holding deposit down on a listing online. It also supports a TransUnion-backed pre-qualification tool that can process credit checks and use them to apply for multiple rentals without experiencing a corresponding number of hard inquiries on their credit score. Lastly, Zumper maintains a blog that provides useful insights on how would-be tenants can find, rent, and move successfully.
Padmapper might not be quite as well-known as the three platforms mentioned above, but it still holds value for renters who prefer a simple, no-frills search tool. “Our goal,” the platform’s leaders write of their motto, “is to make apartment hunting into something people no longer dread.”
This motto traces back to the earliest days of Padmapper’s creation, when founder Eric DeMenthon became frustrated with the challenge of sorting through countless listing sites and built the app as a means to find an affordable place to live in New York City. Padmapper collects and centralizes rental listings from several popular classifieds sites, including Craigslist, Apartments.com, and Rent.com. Users can view a map of potential listings, filter for factors such as price, pet friendliness, listing age, and more, as well as save their favorite listings and sign up for email alerts.
