  1. Parking Garages

    Hello, nearly all of the places that market "parking garage," etc. state in the description that they don't have parking. There should be a way to flag the fibbers

    • Please clarify how you source your listings. A lot of them appear to be from scam artists.

      I would be inclined to use your service if I knew the listings were real. Unfortunately most of the listings I see are "too good to be true" types of listings, and/or the the advertisement is very out of date. I have already spot checked a few properties that appeared to be really good deals - and when I go to the management website for the property the prices are drastically different. Great idea for a site, but without fixes to these problems I probably won't become a paying customer.

      • Notes funtion

        PLEASE bring the functionality of notes - I'd like to keep track of questions I want to ask the landlord, thoughts after a viewing, that another website says it's rented when it still shows on Lovely so don't call them, etc.

        • Setting your search grid to a circle not a square

          Hi,

          Thought I might send you a message about making your searches easier - or maybe you can tell me how to change the search square to a circle. Most people look for a certain radius from a central location...your current search is by a square or rectangle that you can stretch. Make it a circle, I'ts more accurate when trying to be x-miles from a central location like West Hollywood or UCLA etc.

          Just a thought! Or if it is a square for a specific reason I'm curious as to why? So it's easier to map distance via highway?

          • Allow search results to be sent to multiple email addresses

            My boyfriend & I are looking for apartments, and I would like my lovely search alerts to be sent to both of us. I can imagine that there are tons of people that are collaboratively looking for apartments.

            thanks,
            brittany

              It would be awesome if y'all had some sort of ratings system in the results. For each place I have to go open a new tab and find it on apartmentratings.com before I consider it.

              Apartmentratings.com is the best I've seen but it doesn't look like they have an API for you to use. Second best would probably be google places api. Anything would be better than nothing I think

              Thanks

              • Fetch craigslist ads more frequently or add a link to the original ad

                A lot of lovely postings from craigslist are flagged for removal on craigslist but still show up on lovely. It'd be great if this updated more frequently or if there were a link to the original craigslist ad so we can check quicker.

                • Search improvement suggestions

                  It would be helpful if you can add the following filters:

                  1. # bathrooms and PLEASE use 1/2 as a field
                  2. Search by school district - many families (especially in Bay area) are renters and usually need to stay in same school district and/or would be interested in moving to a specific one. (no other website I know of can do that - except for Redfin BUT that's sale not lease).
                  3. Add an estimate for utilites (data available from PG&E, comcast, etc.) for house/apartment size - very helpful when trying to budget your monthly expense - again, don't…

                    • If you can't correctly map the location, link to the source.

                      I have found THREE listings that were all for incorrect locations. All three claimed to be from the Bellevue/Redmond, WA area but one Redmond apartment was in Tacoma, another Redmond apartment was in Bellevue, and a Bellevue apartment was actually in Arizona!!!

                      We can find these listings easily enough by searching Craigslist so just do us a favor and include a link to the Craigslist post so that we can look at the map there. Or you could maybe just verify that your map matches the Craigslist map.

                        • Additional credit checks per application

                          When I look for a tenant, and 2 or 3 adults from one party show up, with certainty the one who has the least worrisome credit steps forward to sacrifice themselves. Unfortunately for them I'm very interested in all adults who will be occupying the apartment and credit checks go a long way in weeding out trouble. I've referred people to use your site but for these multiple person situations it would be ideal to at least offer the option under (co-tenants) to require additional credit checks and of course with additional cost.

                          • Make it so you can filter by date added

                            It would be nice if it was possible to filter listings by the date they were added. For example, if I check every day, I can filter by things added just today, or things added in the last two days, or 3 days, etc. I often find postings that are over a week old, and most of those places are no longer available, so it would be nice to be able to filter out old postings.

                                On the iOS app, alerts are displayed in a list instead of a map. It would be nice to have this as an option for the website because it's annoying having to zoom into and drag the map around trying to find the new listings. Perhaps a side-by-side (map on one side; list on the other) format similar to that employed by HotPads would be nice.

                                  For the people that are posting on this site, you need to have a verification app, there are to much scams and spammers posting house for rent, on here as well as C.L. So the need to verify if the person is who they say they are you need a verification app or page.

                                  • Filter by move in date

                                    This would be a really powerful tool if we can filter by move in date. Most of the stress that comes from finding a place is starting to look at the right time. Unfortunately you can't start looking for a place more than 2-3 months out. Especially in Chicago you have to wait until 2-3 months before and then apartments go within a few hours. Would be nice if landlords and tenants could list and apply for places more in advanced to alleviate the stress on both ends. At the very least if we could just filter by move in…

                                      I think that would add good context to your location listings!!

                                      • Allow us to move the map on a listing

                                        Location is extremely important to me. When I get an alert on my iphone, and open it, the map on the listing page doesn't allow me to move it (or pinch to zoom out, etc) to see what its in relation to. So I always have to "get directions" and then look at it in the maps application. please fix this! it's so annoying!

                                          Would really love it if I could exclude sublets/temporary/furnished housing from my search. I'm looking for a long-term place so these just get in the way.
