map[] How to rent out a place

Create a listing

Posting a room is done within minutes and completely free. All we need is some photos and basic information on your listing. The more you can tell, the better!

Describe your property

Upload some photos and describe the room and area. You can specify what facilities are available.

Get verified

Listings are only shown once you are verified. Verification can either be done with your university email address or by phone.

Who will see my listing?

Once you’re verified, listings are visible to everyone on Housing Anywhere. Only registered users can respond to your listing.

Chat with potential tenants

After posting your room will receive messages from potential tenants. Chat to get to know each other and to agree on the terms

Talk to potential candidates

It all starts with one message that people will send to you. So, be sure to read those messages carefully. Tenants often want to get to know the advertiser of the room and sometimes have additional questions about the room and its availability. People also put a lot of effort into writing those messages trying to provide you with an important information to make the choice easier. Don't let those messages dust in your inbox - review them. If you are sure that someone will not fit - say it right away, so that people know that they need to look further.

How can I increase the number of potential candidates?

There are multiple ways to get your room higher in our rankings and therefore more in the spotlight. Completing your profile is one, but also make sure to have pictures and to have a fast response time when you receive a message.

Find the best match

Once you have found the tenant you like, it is time to accept this person as your preferred tenant and to complete the booking.

How does booking work?

The tenant can either make a booking request that can be accepted by you, or you can invite a tenant to book the room. In either case the tenant will transfer the money to Housing Anywhere – which will be transferred to you a few days after the tenant moves in. Make sure your payout methods are up to date.

What are the advantages of booking?

Booking is all about trust and safety. Once the booking is made, you are certain that you will receive your first month’s rent. If you want to list more rooms or rent out your room another time, we will also reward you by placing your room(s) higher in our search results.

Receive your payment

After booking, all you need to do is sit back and relax. Once the tenant has moved in, the money will be transferred to your account.

When can I expect the payment?

After moving in, a tenant has 48 hours to report whether a room is not as communicated on Housing Anywhere. If no complaints received, the payment will be initiated by Housing Anywhere, which can take up to 3-5 business days (because banks are slow). The first month’s rent can therefore be expected within a week of the tenant moving in.

Something unclear?

If any of the preceding steps is unclear to you, don’t hesitate to ask for help. Our customer care team is available 5 days a week during European business hours. Whether it is in English, Spanish, Dutch, Italian or French, we are here to help
