Apartment hunting is about as frustrating as things get, partly because most listing websites are overloaded with shady info, and partly because the Fish and Wildlife Service has cracked down on the shooting and killing of rentable dwellings. Well, get ready to kill it...on your search! Enter: Inhabi.
Operating just in Philly for now, Inhabi cuts out the worst parts of rental-finding (inaccurate/ bogus/ expired listings, pages upon pages to sort through, skeezy brokers named “Sal”) en route to a more sensible, user-friendly, "eHarmony approach to apartment hunting", so if you’re looking for casual sex with multiple apartments, look somewhere else. Pop in your contact info, financial status (general credit rating & income), specs like # of bedrooms, target rent, and desired ‘hoods, then specify any landmarks you’d like to be near (Mr. Feeny’s House!), and desired extras, from hardwood floors, to lots of natural light, to 60000 singing roaches that'll help women forget you're Jerry O'Connell. From there, Inhabi will entirely bypass Sal and other loser brokers by shooting your specs and credentials straight to landlords, who’ll personally get back to you with matching listings complete with photos, so you can visualize exactly how much of your beanbag chair collection will fit in your future home beanbag chair office.
If all that sounds too complicated, Inhabi's got a more traditional listing format sortable by price and neighborhood, although you should avoid Hunting Park if you’re worried about apartments shooting back at you.
