RentLingo is the biggest source of expert apartment reviews

RentLingo is more than your typical apartment finder. We hire local experts, typically former Property Managers, to rate and review apartments.

Created by two Stanford students frustrated with the apartment searching process, RentLingo emerged out of the idea that there are great apartments out there, but it shouldn't have to be so hard to find them. By creating a professional rating and reviewing system, RentLingo provides the most resourceful apartment guide for finding the best apartment possible.

When reviews are a free for all, the quality goes down. Whether it's bias, anonymity, people with axes to grind, or even businesses saturating online review sites with their own reviews, it can be difficult to find a review that you can trust. That isn't to say that there are no honest or well-written reviews out there, it's just that finding them can be difficult. This is troubling when the decision you are making will affect your daily life for the next 12 months or more.
RentLingo takes the opposite approach to apartment reviews by hiring professionals to anonymously tour apartments. Our approach is similar to Zagat. By using former property managers and apartment locators, we send people that have been immersed in the apartment industry to review apartment properties. So, not only are they knowledgeable about how one apartment holds up with another, they lack the bias and lack of perspective you might find on other review sites.
Over 30 Reviewed Criteria
Over 30 Reviewed Criteria
RentLingo ratings are based on over 30 criteria from our experts' in-person inspection. Every property reviewed has been inspected thoroughly inside and out. We score on a 1-5 scale. A perfect 5 is rare to find and are reserved for only the best of the best.
Sometimes people equate price to rating and while sometimes they're correlated, price is not (and should not) be necessary for a high review. While luxury apartments are by definition, luxury, and include all the bells and whistles that are included in that price, there are always those apartment properties managed by excellent teams that strive for the best and seek to cultivate a strong and attractive community at an affordable rate. Our ratings help apartment searchers quickly discover these gems. Our mission is to help you find the best property that fits your budget. Not sure how much you can afford to pay for rent? Use the rent calculator to figure out your monthly budget. Remember, in apartment renting, low price does not necessarily mean bad quality.
Renters

Lived in an apartment before? Help other renters out and share your perspective. It's good karma! Let us and your friends know by submitting your own review of the apartment you are renting or the neighborhood that you know best. We give you the option of using your Facebook profile in order to get past the problem of anonymous user-reviews, so that you can see what your friends have said about an area you are looking into. The extra input helps future renters with a perspective our experts may not have had on the property.

Managers

As any property manager or leasing agent knows, maintaining a positive online reputation is essential for your business. RentLingo provides an honest answer to the problems created by many user-generated review sites. While RentLingo is not afraid to point out the weaknesses of a property, we look for the positives in every apartment community no matter what the overall quality is. Also, if you've made significant changes to your property since we toured your property, let us know so that we can review your property again. Our mission is to be accurate. Just click the link for managers below every expert review and let us know if you think we've gotten something wrong.

Furthermore, if you like your RentLingo review so much that you want to share it to all potential renters, we offer an online badge that you can embed on your own website. Properties that have installed a RentLingo review badge have seen a 30% gain in lead conversion rate!
