How do Rently self-guided tours work?

Our advanced self-touring technology allows a prospective renter to securely tour a vacant unit without the presence of an agent. Prospects find your listing and register for our system online. Our security system vets the prospect's ID, selfie, and credit card, and performs an AI-powered fraud detection screening. Once approved, the prospective renter will receive a one-time entry code to gain access into the property.

Joshua T.

Love this app... wish more properties used this. it's nice to not be bothered with agents and feel rushed to look at apartments. also being able to look at an apartment on your own time is really nice as well.

Honestly I thought this was a scam at first but it turned out to be one of the most valuable tools we had when we were searching for a house to rent. This super convenient service and easy to use app is essential if you’re looking for a place to rent right now.

Rently app review Jun 05, 2019


I love this app! I love that it allows us to view multiple homes in one day rather than having to schedule with a bunch of different agents and meet them on different days. It also allows us to go after business hours so my husband doesn’t miss work...

Works as described so far. Easy to use and lets you give feedback. Makes it easier IMHO to see a place at your leisure especially if you have odd work hours.

I was very leery about this new self-guided tour thing where you pay a fee to get the key and then replace the key in the box when you are done. I'm so glad I got over that fear. This has been the best experience of my life looking for a home. The app works like a dream, and it's not- I repeat- it is not a scam. If you're looking for a home, don't be afraid to give this…

I really like this app. It’s super easy to manage and with mine and my roommate schedule, ‘this app allows us to house shopping at OUR convenience! No one even needs to be there to let us in because with a short phone call, we can let ourselves in! We love it, and as soon as we find our perfect home we’ll come back and let you know. But for now - this app is totally worth it!!
