Making Rental Search More Trustworthy


One of the most common uncertainties people face when searching for rentals online is guessing if a listing is actually legitimate. While HotPads has many mechanisms in place to make sure all of our listings are of the highest quality, today we’re launching a new way to help people find the best listings even faster. 

The new Trusted Badge is a mark of authenticity, letting everyone know that the listing comes from a reputable and checked source. To get a Trusted Badge, housing professionals must speak directly with HotPads. This deeper level of authentication helps us determine if the listing is in fact legitimate, in the process identifying listings which have better content, more photos, and faster response times. 

We think Trusted Listings will save apartment hunters time and add an extra layer of confidence to the typically uncertain search process. You can learn more about Trusted Listings here
