What does it mean that Dwellsy is “built for renters?” It means renters are our why. And as Simon Sinek encourages, before you can get to the how and what, you must start with why.
What is Dwellsy? A dating site?
Nope. Dwellsy is a home rental search platform. There are few things more personal than one’s home. We’re helping people find rentals to make their own.
A rental is just a space when it’s vacant.
To transform a rental into a home, it needs to be inhabited by renters who can create memories and joy in that space.
Dwellsy is a rental platform, built for renters from all walks of life.
Singles. Couples. Families. Friends. Young adults. Seniors. Extroverts. Introverts. Dog lovers. Cat lovers. Not pet people. And more…
Aren’t all rental websites built for “renters?”
No. They’re actually not. Many are built to showcase properties that people have paid lots of money to show you.
- Go to any familiar rental search website other than Dwellsy.
- Type in the name of a town or city.
- As you review the rentals, ask yourself these questions:
•Is the count of properties listed readily displayed without searching for it? Does the site report a count in one place that doesn’t correlate to the count of results you are being shown?
•Are some properties displayed on the map with different icons? Why? If it is because they are unavailable? Why would you want to see what’s not on the market?
•How many pages of listings are there? Are the sizes and qualities of the images on the first pages delivered to you different than those on later pages? Why do the images diminish in size the further down you go in reviewing results? Why are the listings on page 5 and beyond not available? Again, why would a renter want to see what they can’t rent?
Now let’s take a look at the Dwellsy experience. The “Built for Renters” experience.
Type an address or location into the search box and the rentals will be revealed.
You don’t have to go through an exhaustive questionnaire before seeing available rentals, instead the count of listings is clearly displayed in the top left above the first image.
Until you specify your search criteria, the Dwellsy algorithm democratizes the listings by showing them to you in a random order. Rentals are not promoted to you based on how much someone paid us to show them to you. Why not? Because we don’t charge for listings, leases signed, nor rental property outreach.
Specify any of the following: price range, your bed/bath count, square feet, move in date… and we’ll re-order the listings based on a Dwellsy Match score.
It’s that simple. You tell us what you are looking for, and we will show you results. With Dwellsy, renting is made simple.
Back to that dating question!
While we’re not a website that will match you with a life partner… Dwellsy is a website that is built to match renters with rentals. We accomplish this by prioritizing the renter’s needs first above all else and by curating a collection of high quality listings that you can trust.
