How Rental Apps Make the Search Easy

Apartment searching is tedious, time-consuming, and all-around terrible — any excitement surrounding the change of scenery is drowned out by plans for packing and scheduling tours. That is, unless you have the tools at hand to make finding your next place a breeze.

More Millennials than ever are turning to apps — spending about 90 hours a month on them. And it’s no wonder, because there’s an app for everything: banking, budgeting, calendars, campuses, games, messaging, social media, and many more things, including your apartment search, providing options and convenience that typical desktop searches can’t. Let’s take a look at a few of the ways apartment for rent apps can smooth out your search.


Tucked safely into your cellphone, your apartment search is always with you, which means you can find your next place from any place you happen to be. Are you stuck in a waiting room? Or have a long bus ride? Pull up the app, and get down to business.

Map-Based Search

Addresses alone can only tell you so much about a location — is that by the park, or near downtown? With our map-based search, however, you can hone in on exactly the neighborhood you’re hoping to join. And on mobile, your phone’s GPS can help target your search even more.

Instead of poring over every possible place, let filters do some of the work. On Android and iOS, ABODO lets you set your price range, desired bed- and bathrooms, plus a host of other options renters care about, from finding pet-friendly apartments to making sure you have a balcony, air conditioning, or in-unit laundry.

Save & Share

Don’t lose your favorite listings in the shuffle of the search — favorite them instead, and then access them from any screen. Plus, if you’re collaborating with your future roommates, sharing is a snap with the iOS app. Instantly send the listing to your friends, and get closer to signing that lease.

Easy Contact

For all of our ABODO-verified listings, contacting the property manager is a button-push away. Send a message or start a call right from within the app.

Up-to-Date Listings

In high-demand markets, apartments go fast — especially when they’re listed on the web. Mobile apartment searching apps allow you to see listings in real time. ABODO’s listings are updated daily — so you won’t plan an afternoon of tours only to find out that your dream apartment has been snatched up by someone else.
