Welcome to Tenantree

You wouldn't even buy a tea kettle on Amazon before reading a handful of reviews, so why make the massive commitment of signing an apartment lease in the dark? 

We live in a world filled with customer reviews. It's true that some are more helpful than others, but overall this world of customer reviews has led to a world of more informed, confident customer purchases. I mentioned a tea kettle above: I've just finished my holiday shopping as I sit down to write this first blog post ... and yes I actually just spent like 5 minutes reading reviews for tea kettles on Amazon. Now that might say more about me than about the benefit of customer reviews, but hey I made an informed and confident decision no matter how small, and I know exactly what I'll be getting in a couple of days.

The same cannot be said for the much larger decision of where to rent my next apartment. Apartment rentals are mostly absent from this new world of customer reviews and it's causing a lot more pain than buying the wrong tea kettle.

This is where Tenantree comes in:

Tenantree is a community for renters to search apartment reviews and share anonymous apartment insights. Our goal is to bring more information and more transparency into the apartment rental process. If you’re looking for a new place to call home, use Tenantree in tandem with your favorite listing sites to get reviews from current and former residents before you make your move.

Take a look around and feel free to take a minute to write an anonymous review. Give us a heads up about what it's like to call your place home. If enough of our neighbors do the same, then apartment rentals might finally join the world confident customer choices.

Going forward, we'll use this blog to highlight the best apartments to rent and the best property management companies to rent from so that we all make better moves.

Thanks for reading and feel free to get in touch,

-Tom, cofounder of Tenantree
