Real estate marketplace Zillow launched a dedicated mobile app for renters – Zillow Rentals. Available for Android smartphones, it is said to be optimized for “renters who need to make decisions quickly,” providing them [renters] with access to Rent Zestimates which are Zillow’s estimated rent prices on more than 100 million U.S. homes and apartments.
Moreover, the free to download application also allows users to compare and contrast favorite homes on a side-by-side list, draw boundaries around neighborhoods to narrow a search by geography, use Android’s voice search capabilities to search homes, browse color-coded results organized by time on market, and receive on-screen notifications when new rental homes matching search criteria hit the market. In addition, there’s an option to contact landlords by phone or email instantly, with these properties automatically being added to the user’s list of favorites with a time stamp to help keep track of when landlords were contacted.
