RentHunter Service

How does RentHunter help me to find a home?

RentHunter uses bots to find every rental property on the market including all the websites used in the country.

When you place a search, the bot will start browsing 24/7 for you. At every new property, you will receive an email indicating all the information about this new place within seconds. All you have to do is to activate your email’s notification to be the first to answer !

Bored of being always late? Don’t loose any more minute and start now :

    1. Click on the “Activate RentHunter” button.
    2. Check how many matches you can expect (our website gives an indication when you place the search).
    3. Take a look at the properties online on our application and keep an eye on your email notifications. Then respond as quickly as possible!

How long will it take me to find a new home?

This is possibly the most frequently asked question! The answer depends on several circumstances. Many of our customers manage to get a rental home within a week, others take over a month. The better your search matches what is on the market, the faster it will be.

The main factors that affect how long it takes to find a rental property are :

    1. Is your budget in line with the rest of your search?

    2. How quickly do you respond to the listings we send you?

    3. How well do you meet the landlord’s requirements?

    4. The size of your search area?

Why does RentHunter isn’t free?

Many housing sites do the same thing as RentHunter: they show you long lists of rental properties. Thousands of home seekers are scrolling through the same pages of listings at the same time as you. By the time you see a house that you like, chances are that many others have already discovered the same property. As a result, you are often too late in responding and never hear back from the landlord.

Time is the key to finding a home. That’s why RentHunter does things differently. It delivers houses that fit your search criteria directly to you within seconds after the property is listed. You’ll be one of the first to respond and get, in the same way, invited to more viewings as a result.

Free websites are a great option if you have time to spend searching and applying. But if you’re people with jobs, kids, and friends, RentHunter takes over the heavy lifting and gives you peace of mind and an easy home.

Which type of accomodations does RentHunter offer?

We don’t rent out houses ourselves. RentHunter offers THE solution to find almost all new rental properties in the Netherlands. We are able to look for all type of accomodations: rooms, studios, apartments.

You are also able to choose the number of rooms or bedrooms you want to find in the house of your dreams!

What we can guarantee is that with RentHunter, you will discover virtually any rental property that meets your housing needs and save you hours of searching.

We’ve helped thousands of people find houses already, and are helping more and more each day.

Find a rental property

How can you help me find a home?

We know that finding a rental property seems almost impossible. For every listing there are hundreds of applicants, and landlords often only look at the first 20 who responded.

As you can understand, if you aren’t on top of the pile, you can forget about a viewing.

RentHunter gives you a much-needed competitive edge over usual people!

We use smart search bots who work over 1,400 housing sites day and night, find hidden treasures and send you new homes via email within seconds.

RentHunter makes the process way easier and less stressful. It’s a game changer in the way of searching!

What is the income requirement?

The income requirement is determined by the landlord and therefore varies from property to property. Count on at least 3x the base rent, and in some cases more. So, for a property with a rent of €1,000, expect the base income requirement to be around €3,000/month.

Most property listings mention the income requirement in the advert If it doesn’t, contact the landlord to find out.

How can I maximize my chances of getting a rental place?

There are several things you can do to increase your chances of finding a rental property.

  1. Set up a search with realistic criteria. When placing a search, you get an indication of the number of matches to expect. Aim for at least 3-5 matches per week.
  2. The most important: keep a close eye on your phone and respond immediately. To be the first to respond, every second counts!
  3. Make your response toward the landlord personal, serious and fun, so they get a good impression of you right away.
  4. Call the landlord! Often calling is faster and it’s really effective to show the landlord your determination!

Will it be an extra cost?

No, you can find a house for rent with only a RentHunter subscription!

What can I do if I don’t receive enough matches?

There are several things you can do to increase your number of matches:

  1. Be a little bit more flexible in your criteria.
  2. Add new searches thinking maybe of new areas or new pricing. (even some little change can make a difference)
  3. Try to add your Kamernet account to see the adverts from the biggest platform in the Netherlands.
