How can I see all available rental properties on Redfin.com?
Visit redfin.com/rentals and enter your search location. You can also click ‘Rent’ at the top of any page on Redfin.com and then enter the location where you are searching for rentals. You will then be able to add additional filters to your search, such as maximum price.
If a rental property is displayed on Redfin.com, does that guarantee it is available?
Many of the rental properties we display have current or upcoming availability. We cannot guarantee the availability of properties displayed on Redfin, as we do not own or manage any of the rental properties listed.
How can I find rental properties that meet my specific criteria?
We currently offer six filters to help you find properties that meet your criteria: price, beds, baths, property type (house, apartment, condo, townhouse), pets (dogs allowed, cats allowed), and amenities (air conditioning, in-unit washer/dryer). We expect to add additional filters in the future.
What is the source of rental listings on Redfin.com?
All our rental listings come from the Rent Network, which includes ApartmentGuide.com, Rent.com, and Rentals.com. If a rental property is not listed with one or more of these websites, it will not appear on Redfin.com even if it is listed for rent somewhere else.
How often are rental listings updated on Redfin.com?
We typically refresh our rental listing data from the Rent Network within a day of seeing an update, so updates on Rent Network will show on Redfin soon thereafter. We cannot guarantee the details or availability of a rental listing displayed on Redfin because we simply display the information that has been provided to Rent Network by individual property owners or managers. Redfin does not own or manage any of the properties displayed for rent.
