The renting experience is in dire need of an upgrade. Juggling between apps and websites for property hunting, rental application, approval of tenant cost quotation, and rent payments do not work well for millennial and Gen Z renters. Even landlords find the process increasingly complex, lacking transparency, and time-consuming.
This is where Rentberry makes a huge difference by ushering in a new and better way to rent properties.
“We are creating a home rental ecosystem that offers all-in-one tools for tenants and landlords to reduce the friction in the rental process, from submitting applications to credit checking, e-signing rental agreements, and making online rental payments. It saves time and minimizes vacancy periods—a win-win situation for all,” says Oleksii Humeniuk, CMO of Rentberry.
Rentberry’s all-encompassing rental platform enables tenants to easily search properties by viewing map photos of the property and locate points of interest in the neighborhood. With the recently added feature of a virtual property tour, tenants can view the property interiors from the comfort of their homes. On shortlisting a property, tenants can negotiate rent and security deposits with the negotiation tool and arrive at a figure that benefits both tenants and landlords.
Once the applications are submitted online, tenants can also share financial and other relevant information with potential landlords and e-sign rental agreements in just a few clicks.
Rentberry’s payment tool allows tenants to pay the rent, and set reminders when it’s time to pay the rent or utilities. It also features communication tools for tenants to request and schedule maintenance requests.
For landlords, Rentberry’s streamlined and no-contact service makes it easier to lease properties. They can easily choose the best candidates, sign rental contracts, and receive monthly payments from a single platform. The platform also helps landlords get more visibility on their properties by partnering with major rental platforms in the market to distribute property listings.

Rentberry is working on enhancing its platform with AI that can help tenants determine amenities by quickly scanning the properties. Rentberry is also building a new experience for tenants to get shorter property tours in the form of Instagram reels. If tenants subscribe to some of their preferred agents, they will receive notifications on new listings as stories.
Rentberry’s versatile tools are now paving the way for a new trend of ‘flexible living.’ Instead of renting Airbnb or a hotel, tenants can cost-effectively rent a furnished house for shorter durations, say one to twelve months, without any security deposit. This innovative approach by Rentberry will allow today’s urban nomads to live and work from different locations without entering long-term contracts.
These innovations prove that a tenant’s experience does not just begin after the landlord hands the keys to the property; it starts right from when tenants make their first contact with landlords. Rentberry wants to stay at the intersection of every tenant-landlord communication and make that renting process smooth sailing.
