Finding an apartment to rent in Munich is exhausting in most cases, as described in our article “Mission Impossible: A Guide to Renting an Apartment in Munich”. A new start up from Gräfelfing near Munich may make things a bit easier. At Rentondo.de anyone looking for an apartment can register, introduce themselves by creating a profile and place an ad describing what they are looking for. They are free to offer a reward to anyone who successfully recommends them a place. The site is still in beta.
At the same time, landlords can search for “acceptable” tenants. So far the site offers a platform for ten major German cities (besides Munich, those cities are (Berlin, Bremen, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Essen, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Cologne, and Stuttgart). The site currently runs on German only.
Rentondo.de founder Tobias Sieper told Merkur.de: ”It has become really hard even to contact a Landlord. Demand is on such a level that the landlords can’t cope with it and often don’t get around to answering all potential tenants.”
By using Rentondo.de to pick a tenant, landlords could save agent fees, but they can also offer a fee to anyone who successfully recommends a tenant.
