i like this site very much as it a gives me great detail about the property for rent, i also feel it is safe and secure. i think it is a site where people realy try to help each other which is very important in a fast , hectic place like london.
This website has some great applicants. However, I have found in the last
two months that the potential roommates they are sending me
daily DO NOT MATCH MY CRITERIA on my ad..
Also, most of the members have what is called A BASIC MEMBERSHIP,so e-mails cannot be exchanged between the person with the ad and the person looking for the house share. The only way to communicate is to become a PREMIUM MEMBER and pay the fee attached to that status...
I have had very few hits in two months and have changed
my criteria several times- to attract more potential roommates.
My monthly rent is reasonable and my house is in a great area.
I am getting many more hits on other websites for FREE.
They give you an email to send your questions or problems to, but it's painfully obvious that it's not an actual person. Or if it is, she doesn't understand English. I tried to upgrade 5 different times and it kept saying that my credit card wasn't approved. Of course, I knew that wasn't the case since I even called to check on it. And emailing email@example.com was a complete waste of time. I never received a response at all.
Then I receive an email supposedly from Victoria this morning telling me how happy they are that I was pleased with their service and wanted me to write about my positive experience. I wrote about my experience, but there was nothing positive about it!!!
I put my available room to rent on 3 different sites, and on all 3 I had posted detailed information and multiple photos. Two of the websites were not user-friendly, and I got little or no response to my listings on them. Easyroommate WAS easy to use, and within three days of posting my ad, I have a new roommate!
I will not hesitate to use Easyroommate again, should the need arise in the future!
My changing situation has left me vulnerable and lacking a little trust in people in general ,however I must move on and relocating somewhat blind can be risky but it's something I must get my head around and I'm sure it will happen in time ..
A few glitches when some matches do not meet the stated criteria but overall a very useful service with excellent support when required.
It would certainly be helpful if users were encouraged to respond to emails, even with a simple no thank you.
This is a service I would highly recommend.
I moved from Paris to London last beginning of June. I find my new house with easyroommate only a few days after posting an ad. The help of customer service was perfect. Globally, it was easy to contact landlords and easy to found my place.
My experience with Easyroommate.com is very satisfactory because of their concern towards their customer. It was always very effective and prompt. Last but not least their website both for PC and mobile is awesome.
My best wishes for this company.
Im please to say that all that easyroom mate promised they followed through . after not finding a suitable house mate I asked for the 30 day extension FREE which they extended .Normally you have to jump through hoops too get any thing free so thank you
I have been on this site for 9months and have tried so very hard and many times have been so dissapointed as with all my effort seemed to be unsuccessful. My total interaction and extreme encourage and the positive support from Fernando who was so respectful and tried more than his best to be so understandingt made me try so much harder. He is certainly a great asset to your site, and yes I would recommend this site. All your representatives are pleasant but in particular Fernando excels in his position and I certainly believe he should be a senior supervisor and maybe have a more prestiqe position on this site. I hope things work out for me a I do feel positive but I want to have a optimistic attitude a knowing if things don't work out I have your sites support . Many thanks especially to Fernando whom kept my spirits positive. Thanks
I want to tell you how nice and easy it was to find my new home and roommate.
After posting my desired living arrangement at Easyroommate.com. That the day after I posted, I received a call from someone who had a room for rent that a very closely matched my advertisement. After talking for a few minutes we decided to meet. Once I saw the location and met the person who had called me, I knew this was the right place for me. During our conversation I learned someone else was also interested. My prospective landlord want to think and pray over who to choose. A few days later I received the call as being the once chosen. The whole process took less than one week. If you ever need to find a new home, decide what you want, type up your request, and begin searching for what meets your needs. I'm going to be telling all of my friends how easy it can be to find a home, roommate, and it's all free.
Frank has been brilliant for last 2 weeks when I was looking for a room. I used to get daily updates of any available rooms via email. I would recomend the website to everyone looking for a cheap and quality accomodation.
I was unlucky not to have found a flat mate after 30 days..The good thing is that I was able to get a further 30 days free of charge.What other site offers you such a bonus? A big thank you to easyroommate.
Used this site for about 5 years and just renewed, however I am disappointed. Does not seem as user friendly as it used to be. Why tinker when not necessary.
1 .Search radius should be done on town or postcode like rightmove etc
2. I am struggling to look at other landlord ads in my local area to establish what others are offering and prices etc so can adjust my ad accordingly. Used to be able to search that easily.
3. Not answering phone and have to wait ages. Thanks for 0800 number though otherwise would have not even considered renewing.
I moved from Manchester to London at the beginning of May. I was relocating as I had found work in a bank in the city. I used EasyRoommate to find my new house along with other sites such as Spareroom and Gumtree. EasyRoommate was by far the best service of the three. I was very disappointed with the sheer volume of rented rooms still listed on Gumtree. I alerted their customer service without response. Spareroom was fairly useful. However, I received less responses from the landlords I contacted. After getting the hang of how easyroommate worked it was easy to contact landlords every time a new room came in. Since my search criteria were quite broad, I easily found my dream place. Let's see how it goes in the future.
I was looking for a cheap room somewhere in the neighbourhood if I could but was prepared to go quite some distance now that I have a moped.
At the end of the day it is right in the same vicinity but if I hadn't been notified of the availability of the room I'd have missed it and missed out.
I'm really grateful to Easyroommate for notifying me of the availability of the room. I move in tomorrow!!
I'm on a tight student budget and living in London is expensive. a friend of mine suggested investing 10 pounds for 3 days on easyroommate website. and believe me it has paid me back. I got a room with very good monthly price, friendly roommates and close to my college! thank you for that!
I would not recommend you use EasyRoomMate unless you had a lot of time and patience. The process lacks streamlining and the categories to choose from to set up ads are not as refined as other similar sites I have used with success. Also I think EasyRoomMate is misleading in that that there is NO obvious mention of the REQUIREMENT TO PAY to communicate with anyone who responds to your ad. EASYROOMMATE is NOT free! I am happy to pay for services. I am NOT happy to be misled into thinking a service is free and then having to pay to utilise the service AFTER I have invested my time setting up on the site. It's not until someone responds to your ad and you try to make contact with em that you discover no manner of communication is possible until one party has paid. GOTCHA! I won't use this site again. Sorry EasyRoomMate. I value transparency, particularly when working online. Everything else was fine.
I particularly like the options for 'Favourites' in the search engine...and different methods of replying or showing interest...It has an extremely good database , I haven't seen one as busy as this one, definitely recommend.....
i have dealt with easy roommate for the last 3 to 4 years and have always found it very effective in finding tenants for my rooms. The customere service is good as well. so i can recommend it to anybody without hesitation.
thanks to all the people at easyroomate.
I have tried two other lodger find sites, one is hopeless and I have to keep on logging in each time on the other, and there are not enough people on there.
Easyroommate keep you informed of new matches even if you are an ordinary member.
The free month is lovely as you then dont rush into having an unsuitable lodger and they dont rush into a (Why did I choose this room) situation etc.
You win all round with Frank who sends you new matches.
If you need a help for finding property to rent or to let, I recommend Easyroommate is the best among the best to talk to. They can deal all what you need with style, I been using their service always for years.
Very helpful, attendtive,and respectful member of the staff.
I salute you, and I hope you carry on this way.
I have used this site twice finding a nice reasonably priced room and exactly where i wanted it. so have to say good site thanks
Easy Room Mate is a very easy site to use and to communicate with other users. I think it is important to see pictures of the person who you would like to rent a room and their profile, as it puts your mind at easy when deciding who you would like to have as a room mate and you also know who to expect when you finally meet up for the first time. The Customer Service team are approachable and helpful and when you have a good network support, you feel relaxed about using the site more often. No hassle..
I and my husband used Easystanza 3 times to rent a room for our vacation.
Last 2 times we reserved the room without any advance money. But this time the apartment owner asked us to pay 1.5 months advance fee through Western Union (although we rent only 2 months). So we consulted our case to Easystanza. Easystanza suggested us it was better not to pay any wihout seeing the room especially through Western Union.
Taking this advice, we declared the owner not to pay any with explanation of Easystanza . But insted of that, we introduced our previous apartment owner(phone number with her permission) to make sure that we are honest traveler and also we introduced our blog where the owner could know our personality.
Then finaly the owner sent us e-mail to say that he became to trust us and no need to pay before we settle there.
It was a very good experience.
Easystanza is a system but try to eliminate unnecessary cost for landowner and tenant. In order to have safe transaction, we have to be more careful than using real-estate agent. But Easystanza has a function to help us or consult us.
This time I felt that using this function and try to comunicate with the apartment owner as human, we can have a good result.
Io e mio marito usato Easystanza 3 volte di affittare una camera per la nostra vacanza.
Ultimi 2 volte abbiamo prenotato la camera, senza alcun anticipo di denaro. Ma questa volta il proprietario dell'appartamento ci ha chiesto di pagare 1,5 tassa anticipata mesi tramite Western Union (anche se si affitta solo 2 mesi). Così abbiamo consultato il nostro caso a Easystanza. Easystanza ci ha suggerito che era meglio non pagare alcun wihout vedere la camera soprattutto attraverso Western Union.
Prendendo questo consiglio, abbiamo dichiarato il proprietario di non pagare alcuna con la spiegazione di Easystanza. Ma invece di questo, abbiamo introdotto il nostro precedente proprietario dell'appartamento (il numero di telefono con il suo permesso) per assicurarsi che siamo viaggiatore onesto e inoltre abbiamo introdotto il nostro blog in cui il proprietario poteva conoscere la nostra personalità.
Poi finalmente il proprietario ci ha inviato e-mail per dire che è diventato a fidarsi di noi e non c'è bisogno di pagare prima di stabilirsi lì.
E 'stata una esperienza molto buona.
Easystanza è un sistema, ma cercare di eliminare i costi inutili per proprietario e inquilino. Per avere transazione sicura, dobbiamo essere più attenti rispetto all'utilizzo di agente immobiliare. Ma Easystanza ha una funzione di aiutarci o consultarci.
Questa volta ho sentito che l'utilizzo di questa funzione e cercare di comunicare con il proprietario dell'appartamento, come umano, possiamo avere un buon risultato.
I'm pleased with the service I recieved. I created a account and I received tenants for my room almost immediately. As a landlord, it's great that you don't need to sit back and wait for tenants to get in contact with you....
They actually allow me to be proactive and find a good roommate straight away.
I've used their system 3 times now and always found someone within about 10 days.
There are some minor issues with the site, which forced me to deactivate my ads twice, but Easyroommate's customer service was extremely friendly and sorted out the issue very swiftly.
I would recommend Easyroommate to all other landlords like me.
I like the bulk mailing feature which allows me to notify prospective tenants of new rooms in my HMOs - perfect solution for renting out my properties.
normally I would give you 5 starts but the one left it is to improve even if from my site it is all OK but nothing in this world it is perfect.
I appreciate a lot that when I have some issues and I contact the web service I always get a feedback, that's a big difference compare to others.
I am in France, we have several website like this one, some of them are free but, you have no search engine like here, posting distance from your position and other option makes this website my favorite.
Of coarse it comes not for free, some people are keeping this website working and they have to gain money which I think it is normal.
I would appreciate if people which are renting can leave feedback on their experience during their stay.
That would make owners to try to have better service for people which are renting, as well during years house owners would have more and more feedback all this feedback should create a score. All this would give an image to the people which want to rent.
Same should apply for people which are renting, they should get a feedback from the house owner how they did behave.
Of coarse each side can avoid back feedback just creating new profile but if somebody wants to rent he will rent the house where are positive feedback.
Other wise you can have a look on all websites from this category and try to outscore them, that's how it works if you want to stay in business.
Hope you understood my English.
I subscribed as a basic user to this website, and had access to the adverts, I was also able to send email to the users, but as a basic user I was not allowed to see the replies. The day after I sent a msg to one of the users who matched my needs, I received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org which alerted me about a reply from the user. I opened the msg and I could see five lines of a blurred answer, they prompted me to upgrade in order to see the msg, and being in desperate need of a room as I was, I upgraded to 10 days service for £ 19.90 in order to see my answer. Now you can only imagine what happened next... I reloaded on the msg and it was not there anymore the only think I could see was 'please call - 079560312921 for more details' which I did, but guess what... the number was not in service.
helpful site, solved my problem. I started searching for a room on gumtree, but got all sorts of dodgy messages and spam and decided to use a proper room website. that worked much better and best of all, there were premium members already and I didn't even need to pay to upgrade. No hassle, and I now have my room in london, can't complain.
Thank you from your guests from Tumba, Sweden :) Thanks to easyroommate site for making it easy to for us to select perfect location and price ;) hosts were extremely generous and frienldy - helped us show around the berkshire area on all weekends...whenever we return we will go the them!!
I used different sites to rent out a spare room in my flatshare, Easyroommate was the most efficient one. Qick sign up process, the form takes no time to fill out and I also managed to arrange viewings for the same day. Overall it only took me 5 viewings to find my new flatmate :)
I have been in the UK for 1 month. I was looking for a room in London zones 1-2 and I found my perfect one very quickly via Easyroommate without even paying for the Premium membership. Many landlords who were already Premium members called me to arrange viewings. At some point I have had a plenty of houses to choose from. After 3 viewings I found the best for me which was large enough and close to the Tube (exactly what I was looking for!!). I would definitely use this website again in the future.
