HousingAnywhere is the world's largest rental accommodation platform for mid-term rentals. By joining HousingAnywhere, you get access to 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-hand side of our homepage you will see a button called ‘I am a landlord’. Click on it and then on 'List your property for free'.

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

Step 2: Provide your basic info

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

Step 3: Add more details

Here you can add all of your listing details. Be as specific as possible, and don't forget to add photos, videos and floor plans!

If you’d like to make your listing even more competitive and engaging, you can book a photoshoot with our partner BOOM Image Studio; a group of professionals will take fantastic photos, videos and floor plans of your rooms, so you won’t have to go through the hassle of producing and editing the media yourself.

After you've selected the right options regarding your house rules, the type of tenant you're looking for and all the additional costs, you need to tick the box at the bottom to agree with the HousingAnywhere terms and conditions. After that, you can click on 'publish listing'.

Step 4: Verify your phone number

Now that you've successfully 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 simply won't appear on our platform.

Step 5: 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 having to refresh the page. All communications stay securely put on the platform and enable fast interaction.

Make sure you answer your potential tenant's messages as quickly as possible. Find more information on how to effectively use your inbox here.

Step 6: 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 regarding your listings' activities.
