Rent An Apartment With New Zillow Android App

Real estate website Zillow has released a new app to help Android users find apartment rentals, the company’s first app dedicated to rentals. The app includes Zillow’s “Zestimates,” the sites trademark estimates of the cost of rentals on properties across the country.

The app lets apartment hunters look for a place to live by drawing boundaries around neighborhoods, and select their price range. Once they have searched, the app lets users compare listings in a side-by-side search results page, and then call or email landlords directly.

Jeremy Wacksman, vice president of consumer marketing and mobile at Zillow, stated: “Renters shop differently from buyers and look at many homes quickly, in specific locations, in a short amount of time. The Zillow Rentals for Android App was created specifically to address their needs by organizing listings in an easily-accessible way and allowing them to shop for the right home on location, in the neighborhood where they want to live.”
