New Delhi: Couples face many difficulties during house hunting. Owners usually ask for a hefty deposit without any guarantee of giving it back or hike the rent when they find out that the couple is not married.
In this scenario, online home rental networks are a smart choice as they use various technology-driven features.
These platforms have been collecting data points on customers, properties, homeowners, dealers and transaction to help identify suitable locations for rentals and narrow down searches based on varied segments.
Here are five platforms which provide hassle-free rented homes to couples, who are looking out to live their lives as they wish:
Stayying.com: This property platform provides hassle-free property management services to homeowners with a rental assurance model and a much-needed access of quality homes for tenants, with only a one month deposit in an otherwise deposit heavy market.
