What can you use the app for?

Apartments.com is a search tool that helps users find living spaces. The website keeps things simple by asking for a location along with optional bedroom, bathroom and rent cost details. Each listing offers in depth information including an overview, rent price range, bed and bath quantities, square footage, deposit requirements and contact information. The user can also see ratings and reviews posted by those how live or have lived in the apartment. A “Follow Reviews” link is found on each apartment page that lets the user sign up for notifications when a new review is posted. Most listings also include numerous photos of the interior and exterior so the user can get a good feel for the area.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Apartments.com is one of the most popular websites when it comes to searching for apartments. The site was heavily advertised and is widely used. There are a number of helpful tools that keep users coming back. While Apartments.com has appeal for many, there are those who may find the site lacking. The search focuses on larger complexes. Users will not be able to find duplexes and smaller apartment complexes.

What are the differences to other apps?

Apartments.com isn’t much different from any other real estate search engine. The site is dedicated to apartment hunting, so users know they won’t have to wade through houses, businesses and empty lots. Of course the downside is that the user won’t be able to find those cozy out of the way places that may only be a single apartment or a few that are not a part of a large complex.

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

Apartments.com features a clean interface that is generally user friendly. Each apartment page features images along with organized details and communication tools so the user can find what they need to begin their search. Some users may find that the built in map is cumbersome with some strange loading issues when using Google Chrome browsers.

How does the registration process work?

Visitors can search for locations on Apartments.com without creating an account. The site doesn’t require any personal details, which is a good thing. Asking users to sign in just to search would be a bit much. Anyone with an apartment complex they would like to promote can register for premium services by clicking the “Place an Ad” or “Manager Center” tabs. All other users can come and go as they please without signing up.

What does it cost to use the application?

Apartments.com gives users three subscription options. Each includes the ability to list an apartment complex on the site with a full description and up to 20 photos. The first is a 30 day subscription which costs $79. Users can instead choose a 60 day listing for $99. The longest running option is the 180 (six month) plan which costs $139.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Apartments.com is a good starting point for anyone looking into apartment rentals. The site is ideal for those who prefer larger complexes. Anyone searching for smaller locations will be disappointed. Apartment complex owners and managers can pay for a one to six month long listing to generate interest in their available units.
