Tired of traditional lettings,
we created RentSquare
Have you ever noticed that you don't know what the average rent is for any one area? You also never know how much fees you will be charged when you are trying to rent a home in the UK, until you have to pay for it.
Well, we found out that part of the Housing Crisis is that no one actually knows what a fair deal looks like. And everyone compares rents to advertised prices, but what if those were never the prices the market has accepted?
These frustrations made us think that there has to be a better way.
With open data we found it! We created a calculator that works out the sweet spot for rents for every address in the UK.
Then, a bit of geek magic, a belief in transparency and a passion for good user experience - RentSquare was born.
Our aim is to make rent simple, fair and square!
