An apartment finder or locator service helps you by matching your apartment requirements (as filled out in our form) with open apartment listings in the area where you want to live.
Apartment finders are usually experts in the neighborhoods and markets they serve and can often help you rent hard-to-find, small, and unlisted apartments. They are also especially helpful in placing renters with pets.
Once you complete the form, someone from the apartment finder service will contact you to tell you about open listings that match your requirements in the area where you want to live.
Depending on the region, the apartment finder's services may be free or compensated by a) a flat fee, or b) a fee based on your rent. In most cities, there is no fee. Typically if a fee is charged, it is because the locator provides you access to databases of non-public apartment listings or provides other exclusive services. You will always be advised fees (if any) prior to working with the locator service.
After the apartment finder service contacts you, you can decide whether you want to pay a fee (if any) to gain access to apartment listings. Completing this form does not obligate you in any way to work with the apartment finder who contacts you.
