- homie.rent are a Prop-tech London based startup making renting hassle-free for renters and agents alike.
- Founded in 2016 and backed by Connect Ventures, Seedcamp, and The Family, they’ve been the biggest seed round of 2017 in proptech, bringing their total investment to £3.2million.
homie.rent’s personal home finders help renters understand renting and take care of all logistics so they don’t waste time finding their ideal home. They also work alongside agents to drive them qualified and move-ready tenants, increasing their deal flow and transactions. homie.rent have a tight-knit team that values honesty and integrity, that wants to move fast together & always puts the renter first.
The way homie.rent works is as follows: you first enter your home search details and then get assigned your own homie, a ‘personal agent’ that runs your home search and sends you a curated list of properties that matches your needs. That’s about as #lazyweb as it comes.
Next up you’re asked to choose your favourites via the web-app and book viewings online at your preferred date and time. Then, homie.rent schedules all viewings with multiple agencies into one tour. They then act as the your agent, accompanying you on a cab journey across London to visit your top ten properties, whilst offering “unbiased advice” on the area.
