I stumbled across Zumper on the Google Play Store a couple of months ago. I was looking for a tool to make my apartment search easy so I can focus on finding a job. I wanted to be able to conduct a very quick search to discover if I will be able to live close to where I will work. Since downloading this app, it has proven to be more than useful. It is a location-based search tool that uses your current location to search or you can type in the name of a different community to see what rentals are available in that area. No matter where you are planning to live, you can find a rental property nearby that is in your price range. With Zumper, you can create personalized searches and be alerted when there are new properties available that fit your specifications. This app allows users to choose a location, price range, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, pet friendliness, and listing type. After choosing the best options for your needs, save your search so you get availability alerts for new rentals that match your criteria. This saves you time because you don’t have to recreate searches each time you open the app, it is all there for you. When you find an apartment that piques your interest, Zumper lets you scroll through pictures, browse floor plans, and even contact the realtor.
Zumper is very useful to me because I am interested in moving to Dallas, Texas after graduation. Because Dallas is too far away to visit apartments in person, I use this app to virtually tour apartments in the area and also to understand market trends in Dallas. The Zumper app is available on both iOS and Android devices.
