    A long search for a new apartment can be extremely frustrating. Maybe you're just looking in all the wrong places. Apartment List tends to be more efficient than most platforms, allowing you to find something good in less than 2 weeks.

    False advertising BE AWARE! Aug 10, 2021

    By Lo Li
    Apartment list is absolutely useless website that does not help you to get in contact with anyone. However they will bombard your email 10 times a day and you will have no option to unsubscribe. After signing up with APARTMENT LIST I began receiving lots of ads so I believe that they sell your emails as well. FEELING ABUSED!!!!

    I found my new apartment via Apartment List and am thrilled. The ability to search and then sort by various priorities such as distance to a regular work/school place, budget, amenities, size, etc made it easy for me to pinpoint a neighborhood and find a great apartment at a reasonable price. My only comment would be for their product team to fix the price range levels on the top and bottom of a range. Some of the apartments I shortlisted were sent messages by this app stating that my total range was more than $1,000 higher than I had ever set in my preferences. To me, the top of the range I selected is truly the top of my range - not the middle. Overall I would highly recommend this app to anyone looking to move into a new apartment in a new city!

    Helped me find my apartment and gave me more power. I definitely recommend and love this service! I will be using to find my future place and honestly check it every so often for fun! With an apartment locator I almost signed a lease for 1700 a month not even close to where I wanted to live. With apartment locator I'm an easy 15 minute bike from my favorite place and am paying 1300 a month for rent i was also able to be advised of what was a good deal with the apartment comparison tool
  • Freezes when you try to search in more than one city Jun 9, 2021

    I’m fresh out of college and I was hoping to use this app to search for potential apartments in various cities as I get interviews and job offers from companies in those areas. I enjoyed the app for the most part when looking at the first area and have found some great potential apartment complexes, however as soon as I got a job interview in a different city and went to add an additional location in the app to start browsing, suddenly the app doesn’t load, limiting me to only one city. I’m hoping I can just use the website to browse on my computer, but it is disappointing to be unable to browse apartments in multiple different cities on the go. I have had a few other issues that aren’t as severe but are mildly inconvenient. For instance, I am specifically looking for an apartment for just myself, either a studio or a one bedroom. Even though I had these selected in my search parameters, the app would consistently show me two bedroom apartments and even two bedroom houses. I wish it would stick to the constraints I set, and wish there was an option to not see listings for houses. I also had to block emails from this app in my inbox as they were extremely frequent but wouldn’t stop otherwise. With some improvements this app could be incredible!

  • Too many emails per day, expensive-ish apartments May 18, 2018

    By Nikkilynnkatt
    Yesterday I received 30 emails from Apartment List in ONE DAY. That’s just far too many emails for me, and I’m guessing that’s too many for others too. On top of that, there aren’t really apartments through Apartment List that are great, inexpensive deals. They are mostly upscale apartments in large apartment complexes. Coming from an apartment building with only four units, where the rent for the unit is half the cost of the current market rate (although my unit has been under Los Angeles rent control for 13 years, so I do have a pretty unique deal), looking at these complexes that have 220 units and call themselves a “small” complex with that many units, it’s a little daunting, and as much as the app is easy to use and I do get SOME good information, I haven’t found anything on Apartment List that I haven’t been able to find something similar and cheaper just in Craigslist. The app is ok, I would recommend trying it out, because although it’s not right for me, it might be right for you!

  • A (spammy) Tinder of apartments Aug 3, 2021

    By einsteinboricua
    The idea of a Tinder for apartments is ingenious. You can dislike a place, like it, or love it. You set the parameters for the place (price, bedrooms, etc) and it comes up with properties that meet at least one of the conditions. You’ll find different categories on which to sort the listings. Ideally, the ones who hit all of the features you want will be listed, but the app also allows you to “bend” your preferences and finds other properties that may not match price or distance but still offer most of what you want. Your info is then shared with properties who email you to ask for more information. Some issues here: 1. SPAM SPAM AND MORE SPAM. Even after unsubscribing, I still get emails about price changes and availability. This needs to be fixed. 2. Sharing info immediately with properties should be done on an individual case. I may like a property but I may mull over it a bit before reaching out. Now I’m getting emails from properties asking to tour them. 3. There should be a feature where, after I’ve settled on a place, I tell all the “liked/loved” properties that I’m no longer on the market. That way, they get the hint and stop spamming. The idea is a good one but it’s getting to the point where it’s unbearable. Even Tinder doesn’t spam you or share info without your consent.

    Just easy to look around to try to find a new place. Would be better if something were to turn up, but so difficult with life happening.
  • Information is not accurate Feb 2, 2019

    By SuperStranger
    It is not fault of this app, but nevertheless information about apartments availability and price is not accurate. I have visited a few places using this app when it was saying - available now or giving month and day when it is going to be available, but nothing was available at all or in the nearest future. The same is about prices. If it says $755, it will be over $100 more when you are in the community office plus water, trash etc and it is around $150 more than on the app. I receive notifications everyday about new availability right now, but it is not like this in a real life. So it is kind of waste of time to go to those places and just find out that you came there for nothing. 😳

    Website sucks, you can't login and look at your matches. Once you fill in what you want you're stuck in a loop to create an account. If you could actually look at your matches online from a computer then I'd rate it higher.
  • Not the results I was looking for May 3, 2018

    By TruDiva51
    I love the idea of the app breaking down my criteria and letting me see options I’m willing to compromise on but, the results are so far off. I selected specific neighborhoods for my preference and my exact match results keep coming up with places outside of my neighborhood preference. I chose those neighborhoods because those are the areas I want to live. Anything outside of the specific areas would make me flexible on my location. It’s frustrating because I am turning down 90% of my matches because of where they are located. The few places that were in my desired location were listed with the wrong price. Not sure where the app is getting it’s information from but I have to go directly to the apartment’s website to see an accurate price and it’s usually $50-$100 more than the app listed. I have reached out to customer service and still have not received a response. I’m thankful for other accurate apps like Trulia because this app is good in theory but executed poorly.

    Too many fake listings. They send renting forms and ask for rent and deposit quickly before someone else gets it. I WAS ALMOST FOOLED. But unfortunately didn't realize until I had already sent out the form.
  • This App is Unusable Nov 1, 2018

    By The Number Two Pencil
    I used the website to search for apartments and got a lot of solid matches for what I want in an apartment. Fast forward a week, I download the app and want to sign in to adjust my criteria and see what I can find. Fill in my email that I used on the website and it says something along the lines of “We will email you a link for a quick sign in”. I click the link and it opens up in Safari instead of the app. There is a typical ad bar at the top of the page for the app with an open button so I can jump straight to the app itself. Click the button and it takes me back to the page where I put in my email originally. I put in my address again and it brings up the ‘email you a link’ window again. So essentially I can not use the app to access my account because it circles back to the original email link window. What’s the point of having an app when you redirect me to safari in an email link? It is a solid premise but the execution is annoyingly flawed.

    Used to be such a great app! Now I'm finding out that most of the places I loved it liked are fake listings! Their fake listings have pictures of real listings, but they're trying to "rent" a property that's for sale, and they're trying to do so for an insanely cheap price lol that can't possibly be real. Look out for them, they send an email claiming to be the property owner, saying their family is going on a trip, then they ask for sensitive information for identity theft.

    If you want an accurate app, do not use this app. Being "flex" on my requirements isn't showing me a place with less amenities that costs $500 to $1000 or more. Or giving me "new" matches that haven't been updated in over a year. Will definitely using a different avenue.
  • Pretty Useless Mar 5, 2019

    By Zebra Man Tango
    This as was really helpful when I first got it, i could easily put the area I wanted to live in and it would find places in that general area. When it showed me the information for each apartment there was a lot of readily available information for me to see before I even gave it a maybe. Ever since the update,this app is practically useless. It no longer gives me apartments any where close to my selected area (is usually 30 miles away). This new swiping feature takes away the ability to see a ton of information about a place. The only way to see the information is to swipe, which in turn cluters you shortlist so you can forget about easily narrowing down your search. I feel like they added the swiping feature to mimick dating apps, and that was completely unnecessary and ever since then it just got worse. The app was fine the was it was before all that, now all it does it take up space on your phone.
  • Impossible to use Mar 1, 2020

    By Soo M.
    I am moving to Boston in a few months and my friends raved about how helpful this app is for apartment searching, so I was really excited to use it. But the app never even gave me a chance. It started off asking what location you are looking for. I looked for Boston’s Seaport District, but it didn’t have it there as an option at all. Very annoying, considering Seaport is a well known and established district in Boston that is recognized on both Google and Apple Maps as an official district. I tried to look for the next closest neighborhood, Fort Point, and that also wasn’t there... Very frustrating. I put the closest neighborhood I could find and moved on. Later, they asked what my price range is. For some reason, the currency was set to Korean won... I assume it might be due to some setting in my phone, since I am from Korea (even though I bought my phone and phone plan in the U.S.). But there is no option to change the currency setting! So its asking me for my budget in Korean won for an apartment in the States. The highest option they have was “10,000+” which is useless since that’s $8 USD. I just went on and finished all the questions and when I finally hit “See my results” I get an error message that says “The operation couldn’t be completed.” There are plenty of decent apartment apps and websites out there. Don’t bother with this one.
  • Dating App Vibes 😬 No New Yorkers??? Apr 11, 2019

    By Jon Geaudeaux
    Why is this like Tinder? How will I dislike or like just based on the one photo and location??????? This is super inappropriate for something as serious as finding where you’re legally bound to live for a year or whatever. The setup is really long, guys... At first I was into it, like, “ooooh customized! Sweet!”, but then it just turned into a dating app... letting me make snap decisions based on the one garbage picture the realtor deems clickbait worthy and the location on a map. Also why isn’t there an option to choose multiple commutes? Is this app specifically for single people with no one else in the house to commute anywhere? For this reason alone, I already find this app unusable. My husband commutes too... Also... I live in New York City.... this app is useless for New Yorkers too... if I say I want to live within 30 minutes commute range, it shows me a ton of listings for Jersey, and almost nothing in Queens!!! Sure I can expand the range to add more of the Bronx or Brooklyn or Queens, but then it’s going to add a crap ton more listings from Jersey too!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh! Dear App Developers, almost no one wants to live in Jersey and work in Manhattan... it’s crazy stressful. I’m sorry, but I am deleting this app immediately... I know I’ve used this app before... but now... 😬

    I have been apartment hunting for some time. I must have reworded my search, because I was being asked all kinds of questions! It is better than dealing with any human! With each q & a, apartments are added to this "list" until all the properties that have any of the criteria are added and presented as "options"! There isn't an explanation for this app, it is something that everyone should have the pleasure to experience. Even if you're not moving, it is so cool to find your "Wishlist!"

    By WashDC
    I'm relocating for work to a totally new city, and have very little free time to search through the other apps and websites to figure out which apartment complexes would be best for me. Short of hiring a realtor, this is the best option out there. You put in what you want, where you want it, and how much you want to pay, and this app does the rest of the searching for you. It gives you matches based on your preferences, as well as options you may not have considered that are partial matches that still fit your profile. Once you have matches ranked, the app helps you contact the apartments and set up visits. Seriously this is the best app I've found for apartment searching on the App Store.

    Places that become unavailable show "Contact for info" so it's better to just unmatch from it/clear shortlist once in a while. The amneties are not always accurate, which I believe is the renters fault (i.e. Checking off "Pet friendly" while the description says NO PETS). Don't use the chat, no one responds. Go directly to the property website after you find something. This app is REALLY good at narrowing down your search to exactly what you want and seeing what's available, but follow my tips

  • Good app, but... May 28, 2019

    By fdhkoyfxgnrdcjhtd
    Good app, really helpful, but despite saving multiple apartments from my short list as “love it”, it never actually moves anything to that list. It will move things to “visiting” easily enough, so I hope it’s a temporary glitch. Also, it’d be nice if the places you say “no” to were formatted into a list- I’ve accidentally hit no, and then had to swipe no to 50 apartment all over again just to get the one I liked back. Rather inconvenient. There are other features I would love to see here, like pet rent added, deposit amounts, weight limits or breed restrictions for dogs (and making that filterable when searching). These are minor complaints. Definitely going to be my first stop app at narrowing places down, much more detailed and easier to use than other apartment-finding apps.

    This app is great and would be even better with a few small changes. I love the ability to quickly add apartments to my shortlist and see many apartments at once to be able to compare. I also really like being able to see all the apartments I have added to my list on a map. The interface is easy to use and intuitive, and a large selection of desirable units. Some suggestions: -add option to filter or sort by size -add search ability to find a specific complex or unit -add ability to tag units, add a note, or create custom lists (loft, pet friendly, laundry in unit, etc) to remember why I liked certain units -show units that I have already messaged separately -exclusion criteria (don’t show me any units in this city, below this size, without this feature, etc) -easier to change apartments from “loves” to “likes” and vice versa without removing from shortlist These could even be premium features if needed. Overall I definitely recommend this app and find it simple and easy to view a large amount of apartments quickly and easily to find the ones that work for me, but it could be even better with some simple improvements.
  • Good but needs more features Feb 20, 2018

    By Shicksocovwuxins
    It would save me a TON of time if the app allowed multiple commute points (I’m a district manager and my boyfriend also works- so we have 4 places we’d like to work fairly close to but I can only select one so then I have to individually check the rest.) Also, to have features that are non-negotiable. For instance, I’m totally fine not having hardwood floors although I would prefer them, but not having an in unit laundry is an absolute deal breaker- but over half of the suggested places don’t have in unit washer or dryer so I have to go through to get rid of them. Over all the app is wonderful. Easy to use, great updates, very positive experience. But those two things could save literally hours of my life while searching!

    So easy and love the options I just wish when choosing the sections of town you want you could see where they are. I have to use maps to find them, esp if I know I want to move to a North or south part of town but don't know the neighborhoods there.
  • Love it- could use improvement Mar 10, 2021

    By Mag McC
    I love this app! it makes searching for rentals so much easier. only criticism i have is i wish the short list was easier to view and manage. It is difficult to scroll through your shortlist and view all the places especially when a lot of the rentals are no longer available. it would be nice if the app automatically took away the unavailable rentals. i also don’t like having to individually click on each rental on my shortlist to be able to view the details such as how many beds and baths. it also gets frustrating how every time you take a rental off of your shortlist the whole list refreshes and goes back to the top. other than that i think this app is great and fun to use!
  • Too many emails per day, expensive-ish apartments May 18, 2018

    By Nikkilynnkatt
    Yesterday I received 30 emails from Apartment List in ONE DAY. That’s just far too many emails for me, and I’m guessing that’s too many for others too. On top of that, there aren’t really apartments through Apartment List that are great, inexpensive deals. They are mostly upscale apartments in large apartment complexes. Coming from an apartment building with only four units, where the rent for the unit is half the cost of the current market rate (although my unit has been under Los Angeles rent control for 13 years, so I do have a pretty unique deal), looking at these complexes that have 220 units and call themselves a “small” complex with that many units, it’s a little daunting, and as much as the app is easy to use and I do get SOME good information, I haven’t found anything on Apartment List that I haven’t been able to find something similar and cheaper just in Craigslist. The app is ok, I would recommend trying it out, because although it’s not right for me, it might be right for you!
  • Honestly this *could be the best rent app ever Aug 20, 2019

    By BlessedRocker
    This app is pretty amazing. It's the tinder of apartments, she makes it really easy and straightforward for finding your perfect apartment hookup. Hahaha Here's what it needs to get to 5 stars: 1) I found a place. I'm still getting calls, texts, and emails from apartment companies. How do I tell them I'm done for at least 13 months?? Hahaha 2) The ability to change liked->loved, and vice versa, once you learn more about a place 3) The needs to be a search bar. I accidentally right or left swipe some places, and I wanted to add then to a list. 4) the moment you "like" or "love" a place, that place gets your phone and email in a automated message from you saying "please contact me I want to learn more because I'm interested to live there". But I'm not, I'm still just deciding if I even want the first date, and now they're all sliding into my DMS and hitting me up like I'm ready for a long term relationship. Let me narrow down my Prospects and then have a button "contact my love list" etc 5) I ended up signing with an apartment not on the list, so it might be worth having a sales rep calling or emailing every apartment with stats saying "we the fastest growing and #1 app for apartments, please add your listing to our app" and get more in there. They're at about 20% coverage.
  • Okay, but some things are really annoying Mar 16, 2018

    By Doctor whooves
    I like a lot of the ways that this app lets you compare apartments, it has a lot of comparison features other apps dont have, but i HATE the way that it doesnt let you search for apartments. all i want to do is look up an apartment i found through another site so i can use this apps comparison interface! also annoying is how i cant look through simple LISTS. yeah, the categories where you can find matches are useful, but when a category has 400 results the "having to click yes/no on every single one" thing is really inefficient, especially when every click gives you a pop up that takes forever to load on my slow internet, its just not worth it for those really long lists. i LOVE the way it compares apartments, but the app makes it hard to find apts to compare in the first place in some ways

    I'm beginning to see what's available and the range of pricing. There can be a wider range of rental pricing than I expected, and there can be more acceptance of pets than I expected. Thank you for your computer app.
  • Not the results I was looking for May 3, 2018

    By TruDiva51
    I love the idea of the app breaking down my criteria and letting me see options I’m willing to compromise on but, the results are so far off. I selected specific neighborhoods for my preference and my exact match results keep coming up with places outside of my neighborhood preference. I chose those neighborhoods because those are the areas I want to live. Anything outside of the specific areas would make me flexible on my location. It’s frustrating because I am turning down 90% of my matches because of where they are located. The few places that were in my desired location were listed with the wrong price. Not sure where the app is getting it’s information from but I have to go directly to the apartment’s website to see an accurate price and it’s usually $50-$100 more than the app listed. I have reached out to customer service and still have not received a response. I’m thankful for other accurate apps like Trulia because this app is good in theory but executed poorly.
  • Dating App Vibes 😬 No New Yorkers??? Apr 11, 2019

    By Jon Geaudeaux
    Why is this like Tinder? How will I dislike or like just based on the one photo and location??????? This is super inappropriate for something as serious as finding where you’re legally bound to live for a year or whatever. The setup is really long, guys... At first I was into it, like, “ooooh customized! Sweet!”, but then it just turned into a dating app... letting me make snap decisions based on the one garbage picture the realtor deems clickbait worthy and the location on a map. Also why isn’t there an option to choose multiple commutes? Is this app specifically for single people with no one else in the house to commute anywhere? For this reason alone, I already find this app unusable. My husband commutes too... Also... I live in New York City.... this app is useless for New Yorkers too... if I say I want to live within 30 minutes commute range, it shows me a ton of listings for Jersey, and almost nothing in Queens!!! Sure I can expand the range to add more of the Bronx or Brooklyn or Queens, but then it’s going to add a crap ton more listings from Jersey too!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh! Dear App Developers, almost no one wants to live in Jersey and work in Manhattan... it’s crazy stressful. I’m sorry, but I am deleting this app immediately... I know I’ve used this app before... but now... 😬

    False advertising BE AWARE! Aug 10, 2021

    By Lo Li
    Apartment list is absolutely useless website that does not help you to get in contact with anyone. However they will bombard your email 10 times a day and you will have no option to unsubscribe. After signing up with APARTMENT LIST I began receiving lots of ads so I believe that they sell your emails as well. FEELING ABUSED!!!!

    Website sucks, you can't login and look at your matches. Once you fill in what you want you're stuck in a loop to create an account. If you could actually look at your matches online from a computer then I'd rate it higher.

    Too many fake listings. They send renting forms and ask for rent and deposit quickly before someone else gets it. I WAS ALMOST FOOLED. But unfortunately didn't realize until I had already sent out the form.
  • This App is Unusable Nov 1, 2018

    By The Number Two Pencil
    I used the website to search for apartments and got a lot of solid matches for what I want in an apartment. Fast forward a week, I download the app and want to sign in to adjust my criteria and see what I can find. Fill in my email that I used on the website and it says something along the lines of “We will email you a link for a quick sign in”. I click the link and it opens up in Safari instead of the app. There is a typical ad bar at the top of the page for the app with an open button so I can jump straight to the app itself. Click the button and it takes me back to the page where I put in my email originally. I put in my address again and it brings up the ‘email you a link’ window again. So essentially I can not use the app to access my account because it circles back to the original email link window. What’s the point of having an app when you redirect me to safari in an email link? It is a solid premise but the execution is annoyingly flawed.

    Used to be such a great app! Now I'm finding out that most of the places I loved it liked are fake listings! Their fake listings have pictures of real listings, but they're trying to "rent" a property that's for sale, and they're trying to do so for an insanely cheap price lol that can't possibly be real. Look out for them, they send an email claiming to be the property owner, saying their family is going on a trip, then they ask for sensitive information for identity theft.

    If you want an accurate app, do not use this app. Being "flex" on my requirements isn't showing me a place with less amenities that costs $500 to $1000 or more. Or giving me "new" matches that haven't been updated in over a year. Will definitely using a different avenue.
  • Pretty Useless Mar 5, 2019

    By Zebra Man Tango
    This as was really helpful when I first got it, i could easily put the area I wanted to live in and it would find places in that general area. When it showed me the information for each apartment there was a lot of readily available information for me to see before I even gave it a maybe. Ever since the update,this app is practically useless. It no longer gives me apartments any where close to my selected area (is usually 30 miles away). This new swiping feature takes away the ability to see a ton of information about a place. The only way to see the information is to swipe, which in turn cluters you shortlist so you can forget about easily narrowing down your search. I feel like they added the swiping feature to mimick dating apps, and that was completely unnecessary and ever since then it just got worse. The app was fine the was it was before all that, now all it does it take up space on your phone.
  • Impossible to use Mar 1, 2020

    By Soo M.
    I am moving to Boston in a few months and my friends raved about how helpful this app is for apartment searching, so I was really excited to use it. But the app never even gave me a chance. It started off asking what location you are looking for. I looked for Boston’s Seaport District, but it didn’t have it there as an option at all. Very annoying, considering Seaport is a well known and established district in Boston that is recognized on both Google and Apple Maps as an official district. I tried to look for the next closest neighborhood, Fort Point, and that also wasn’t there... Very frustrating. I put the closest neighborhood I could find and moved on. Later, they asked what my price range is. For some reason, the currency was set to Korean won... I assume it might be due to some setting in my phone, since I am from Korea (even though I bought my phone and phone plan in the U.S.). But there is no option to change the currency setting! So its asking me for my budget in Korean won for an apartment in the States. The highest option they have was “10,000+” which is useless since that’s $8 USD. I just went on and finished all the questions and when I finally hit “See my results” I get an error message that says “The operation couldn’t be completed.” There are plenty of decent apartment apps and websites out there. Don’t bother with this one.
  • Absolute garbage. Feb 8, 2019

    By Thelittlerbear
    This app is trash. I just spent the last 30 minutes cycling through the same questions to try to “see my matches” only to be given a magical email link that sends me through the same exact sequence of questioning. Mind you I’ve already accessed and logged my favorite apartments on the website and should have a log in. I downloaded the app for convenience, but have instead been sent on a merry go round of answering the same questions, then being told to click a magic link, then answer the same questions, then click the same link, to answer the same questions, to click the same link, and so on so forth. I’ve been doing this for about 20 minutes now to no avail. My advice would be to skip the app all together and just use the webpage. The purpose of an app is convenience and this is truly the antithesis. Complete waste of time. Very disappointing. Extremely frustrating.

    By Cory Janssen
    Horrible app. This is probably the biggest disappointment ever. Made 2 reservations to see apartments and both of them fell through. The people I contacted didn't even bother to contact the property. Which means the numbers here aren't even accurate. Do not go here for apartments.
