LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Launching today in the App Store, HomeMe is the only mobile app that reinvents the process for renting an apartment. Rather than seeing an apartment only to find out later whether you can qualify to rent it, HomeMe enables users to view apartments they're pre-approved to rent. Unlike any other app, HomeMe eliminates the traditional process of filling out a rental application and is completely free. Users save money on costs associated with applications, background checks and subscription fees. HomeMe is empowering renters by making the rental process easy and more transparent before they begin their search.
Minimal information is needed to qualify for an apartment. The approval process works by checking the user's annual income, credit, background and rental history. HomeMe then compares the data against the property's criteria to match renters with a listing they're qualified to view and rent.
"HomeMe is making the rental process faster and convenient for renters and apartment management companies by allowing renters to easily browse listings, book appointments and reserve an apartment that they're approved to rent from their mobile phone," says Mark Douglas, President and CEO. "We've equipped the app with a real-time database of available apartments that will only include pre-approved listings for renters."
"The idea was to simplify the rental process and empower renters to focus more on the apartment rather than the application," says Lindsey Holland, Vice President of Client Services. "This also benefits apartment management companies by only matching them with qualified renters, making it an easier and faster process for both parties."
HomeMe is now available in Houston with Dallas and Austin to shortly follow. The app will be expanding nationwide this year and will also be launching on Android devices in March.
HomeMe is co-founded by Mark Douglas, a serial entrepreneur and experienced Silicon Valley Executive. Mark is also CEO of SteelHouse, a $100 million per year Ad-Tech Company. Mark was also previously CTO of eHarmony, the Rubicon Project and part of the founding team of the Oracle Applications Division. Mark co-founded HomeMe with Lindsey Holland, Vice President of Client Services, an eleven-year veteran in the property management industry where she built and managed multiple large scale apartment properties.
Launched in 2016 and headquartered in Los Angeles, HomeMe is the only mobile app that instantly pre-approves users to rent an apartment on demand. It's the complete reversal of the daunting rental process, empowering users by eliminating applications and application fees. Equipped with a real-time database of available units, HomeMe is the fastest and most convenient way to find an apartment. Easily browse listings, book appointments, and reserve a pre-approved apartment from a mobile phone. HomeMe is free to download and available on iTunes.
