Amy and I have been in our new place for just over a month now. We love it, mostly because our landlord allowed us to get a puppy (but the neighborhood, deck, and everything else are pretty awesome too). We did a lot of looking on Zillow, Redfin, and other sites, but they all offered pretty disappointing experiences (lots of junk listings and hard to use interfaces). We eventually ended up using a real estate agent, and she found the rental for us. I was the first person to say that real estate agents were being made obsolete by websites, but my recent experience proved me wrong. Still, the web keeps becoming a better and better tool to find a place to live. Lovely is a San Francisco, CA based startup that is playing a role in the progress. They know “how painful it can be to rent an apartment and think it should be faster, easier, and more transparent.”
Lovely is “a real rental marketplace that helps renters find the homes they want and helps property owners and managers find the renters they want.” The site’s user experience is pretty nice, but I’m not convinced that it’s any better than what I was using a few months ago–at least not yet. I think that the key for Lovely will be getting more property owners/managers to use the site. No amount of technology can replace good quality inputs in the form of detailed property listings. If you’d like to help the people at Lovely make renting easier, check out their careers on their About page. There are a number of jobs to watch out for including Sales Development Specialist, Quality Assurance Engineer, iOS Engineer, Front End Engineer, Software Engineer, and Visual Designer.
