About HotPads


At HotPads, we think that it should be easier to find your next home. That's why we're building the most comprehensive and interactive marketplace of rental search. Combining powerful search tools, layers of data, and an innovative user interface, we're simplifying the housing search process and helping you make smarter housing decisions.

With our unique map-based search, you have access to the best communication platform for sharing information about available housing.

Acquired in 2012, HotPads is now a Zillow, Inc. business and part of Zillow's portfolio of real estate and home-related marketplaces. For more information on Zillow, Inc. and the company's other businesses, visit Zillow's website.

All of our listings come from MLS feeds and listings generated through our partner site Postlets. We do not scrape any listings from Craigslist.

List Your Place on Postlets!
