U.S.-based property listing giant Zillow recently announced a new set of tools that should allow searching renters to apply for multiple apartments on one form as well as pay their rent all in one place, via Zillow’s website.
According to Inman, these new tools aim to make Zillow the go-to place for Americans to search, apply to and pay for rentals online.
Although the tools are available to renters across three of Zillow’s brands — Zillow, Trulia, and HotPads — the features won’t be available just yet on StreetEasy, Zillow’s popular platform for New York City real estate.
Zillow President Jeremy Wacksman said in a statement that renters have requested of the company to provide the entire rental process to take place online, from search to application to payment, “However, most landlords don’t have the resources to offer these services. We’re excited to provide the technology to help renters and landlords have a better experience,” added Wacksman.
