HousingAnywhere is Europes's largest rental accommodation platform for mid-term rentals. By joining HousingAnywhere, you access our verified pool of international students and young working professionals looking for accommodation.

Our international tenants are looking forward to booking your properties. Get started by following these 6 simple steps:

Step 1: Get started

On the top right of our homepage you will see a button called For landlords. Click on it and then on List your property for free.

On the next page, specify whether you're looking for roommates or renting out entire properties. Add all the required information, including your phone number, and click on Continue.

Step 2: Provide basic info

Fill out the essential details about your property, including the available dates, the address and the rent. To ensure that your potential tenants know when they can rent your property, select the start and end date of your property’s availability. Then click on Next.

Step 3: Verify your identity

Click on Verify your identity text in the blue box and then on Verify now. Add your professional details and a photo of your government-issued ID document. Then click Submit.

Step 4: Add more details

Add your listing details. Be as specific as possible, and don't forget to add photos, videos and floor plans.

After selecting the appropriate options regarding your house rules, the type of tenant you're looking for, and all the additional costs, tick the box at the bottom to agree with the HousingAnywhere terms and conditions. After that, click on Publish.

Step 5: Verify your phone number

Now that you've completed the previous steps, it's time to verify your phone number. You'll receive a verification code on the number you've previously filled in. Enter the verification code and then click on Verify.

This is a crucial step! If you don't verify your phone number first, your listings won't appear on our platform.

Step 6: Real-time messaging

Your listings are now online! You'll now be able to receive messages from our users. Our real-time messaging system allows both parties to instantly view new messages without refreshing the page. All communications are secure on the platform and enable fast interaction.

Make sure you answer your potential tenant's messages as quickly as possible.

Step 7: Send an invitation to book

Now that you're in contact with your potential tenants, you can either send them an 'invitation to book', or accept their 'booking requests'. Generally, advertisers that send out invitations to book find tenants 3 times faster. If you receive a booking request, you will receive notifications via email or SMS.
