Great app

I really like this app. There is one thing I wish could be changed and that is...not showing me rooms for rent unless I specifically choose to look for rooms. I’ve been looking for 1-2 bedroom apartments and when I click into some of them they end up being rooms which is a bit frustrating. Otherwise the app is great.


Finally a lightweight app that works smoothly and actually works when it comes to finding AFFORDABLE homes.

Used to be my favorite

I used to love hot pads. I finally deleted after weeks of the app not allowing me to enlarge the posted pictures for easier viewing. I could scroll through just fine with the thumbnail. It became too frustrating to close the app, remove it from my history, reopen, view one Home only to have the same thing happen

Loving this

Great app. Lots of properties actually in here. Design and functionality of the site are exceptional, and the best I've seen of any of these rental sites. LOVING THIS APP !!

Can’t type in desired location

I live in Cambridge and everything is expensive so of course I would like to look elsewhere but this app just searches in your exact location there is an option to type by location but that feature does not work so all these reviews are fake as a suspected

LOVE this app!

It's easy to see what I liked and what I've seen vs not seen. The app lets you easily contact the owner/realtor. I think a lot of homes use it to rent out or it sources the info from somewhere. Idk but it works well.

Buggy at times

Overall a great app. At times, when viewing a pic on my iPad Pro, the pic won’t expand and requires to force quit the app and restart

Easy to use.

I love it.

Love it

I really like and find this app very helpful

Garbage ..keeps crashing

Keeps crashing

My Go to App

I have used downloaded many home buying/rental apps and I must say HotPads is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!! It’s very user friendly and just what I needed.

I like this app

Good over all but sometimes doesn't save my favorites and that can be frustrating when I go back to see the houses I've saved. I think it's critical that that bug is fixed.

Too busy to look myself...

This app is great! The response time from the realtors or agents is phenomenal. Everyone I have spoken with are friendly with a willingness to help.

Works great!!!

Very easy to use.

Mostly great

Would be perfect if somehow the posters were required to contact you. Also I feel sometimes you don’t get updates as timely as you should for new listings.

Great App, but...

I absolutely love this app! Very user friendly. The only thing I constantly have a problem with is street view. No matter what listing I look at, when I click on street view, most of the picture is greyed out. It's very frustrating as it's hard to see the home or street.

Home sweet home

This is a great app to finding your new home. Whether you're looking to buy or rent, it's very helpful in checking out the surrounding area and beyond! I found the condo I'm renting through here about a year and a half ago and now using it to find a home to buy. Great search features like price range and what you're looking for to customize the search tailored to you. I recommend it to fam and friends :)

Great App needs more filters

This is an awesome app but what would make it even better is if you could filter more based off information that is given like school ratings or commute to work times.

The best!

I've tried a handful of apps to look for rentals and this is by far the best. The most comprehensive and user friendly. Now I'm using it to look for a home to buy. It's just great.

No way to upload photos from mobile device

Severely hampers my ability to use this app (and the website). ☹️

Renting from another state

Always on top of where we are searching. Very user friendly.... And nice features such as price comparison in close proximity! Thanks for making this part of the relocation game a little easier...

Good app

It’s a good app, however my only thing I have to say is wrong with this is allowing people to post houses/apartments without any picture or just ONE picture.


Best for looking for a place to live 😊

Good app

Happy happy happy

The App

The app is great, we just need better responses from the apartments that's listen on them.

Reliable and Easy

So far,so good! It’s reliable and easy to use. Also I like how it shows all the listings available in the city and state you are searching for.

Works great

No bugs.

Love it

Easy and fast response

Great App

Wish there was a way I could clear history thought.

GREAT 🏆!!!❤️

the best one, I love it!!! ❤️😊👍🏼

Convenient, user friendly

No problems from me. Always easy to use, nice way to see your options, set alerts for immediate updates and contact property managers/landlords.


Easy to use, not a lot of scams! Found all my apartments through this app. Yay!

Garbage app

This app restricts you and tries to give you what the app wants you to see. I put in Potomac MD and it's giving me lower schools area even though I put in the zip code I wanted. I tried a different app and found 100 listings in my preferred zip code.

Outstanding App!

This app facilitated our recent housing search. Reliably shows current listings based on user's geographical parameters and contiguous neighborhood services.


Somehow I prefer Trulia it gives you more info about the tenant

Best app

I hate going to realestate sites just to have to give all my info to look at places available. This app is great and seems to have very updated houses without needing to search other sites.

Decent App

Overall I had a good experience finding apartments, and actually renting a property I found on here. The issue is I continually turn notifications off, but they somehow come back on. I'd rather not delete the app because I'll forget about it next year when I look for a place again, but I just might have to!

Fantastic App.

Easy to use map, gallery, and information tabs. Well done.

Good but needs improvement

I like the app. It gives accurate rentals. I like how it provides street views even when there isn't pictures of the rental. One thing I do not like is when I put a certain city or town in, it doesn't give me just that town. It still gives me surrounding towns. It doesn't give always give you the criteria you're looking for.

Best App!!



Great app!!!

Great UI, fun to browse

The listings on here tend to be best for apartments only. Any of the rental houses I've run into have been on the market for a while. It's fun exploring options in different neighborhoods and can help with the planning stages of when you're looking to move so you can get an understanding of price & space expectations.

#1 app for finding a place

I've used Hot Pads for each time I've had to move. I've always found unique and "off the path" places that don't appear in traditional sites/apps. I just found a great place to live and it only took less than an hour of searching! 🔥


App itself works great but a lot of spam seems to be on the website. Whenever I contact listings there is never any answer and the listing is still up🤷‍♀️ like seriously people if y'all not seriously renting an apartment then stop posting.

Solid app

Good app for seeing what's out there.

System Failure

The iPhone app won't allow you to add a new listing, plus the website keeps giving an error message when you try to verify a phone in order to active a listing. This company may no longer be in business.

Amazing ! These best app hands down

This review is long over due.. I really love this app I'm always getting updates on new Apt's by me or in my price range. I love that HotPads is so good at following up and getting the renters to respond back so quickly ! So glad I heard bout this app. Now I'll find the place I've always wanted with out breaking my neck for it .


This is a great app to look up Your home

Love this App

The houses and location are great. Looking forward to seeing my family in a new home soon

Too Many Rooms for Rent

Half of the "one bed rooms" I look at are really rooms for rent and they don't have a way to filter them out so it's tedious, other apps have that feature to exclude rooms for rent. So ✌🏾
