Spotahome is an international online marketplace which offers verified rental accommodation across 100 European cities in 27 countries and with a global ambition. Spotahome began as a start-up created in 2014 by 4 friends with a vision to revolutionise the traditional real estate space starting with digitalising rentals.
At Spotahome we make renting easy by allowing people to book completely online from wherever they are in the world, with the knowledge that the property they are booking is real and accurate. We are the only ones sending “Homecheckers” to make videos, floorplans, and photos to the almost 100,000 properties across Europe.
So far we’ve helped over 150,000 renters find their perfect home – no more traditional viewings, no more time-wasting, just easy online renting!
