Livin’ for Leaseful

Posted by @leaseful on Instagram

Spring fever is upon us and as we approach the warm weather, the stress of subleasing and finding an apartment to rent for your summer internship begins to sink in. VALLEY is here to tell you not to stress.

You’ve probably seen flyers around campus and maybe a cup or two at a party, but VALLEY wants to give you the 411 on this trendy company helping you sublease your apartment.

Introducing Leaseful: college subleasing made easy. Leaseful is a fresh new company based in California. It’s a peer-to-peer marketplace for college students to share their unused rooms and book their own temporary housing. Put simply, it’s Airbnb for your college apartments.

Leaseful is super easy to navigate, you simply go to the website and create an account. Once you create your account, you can list your pad or look for other places to rent. If you see a place you like, then you can message the host.

Leaseful is founded on the principle that no one should have to give up a summer internship due to lack of housing. The Leaseful employees get what it’s like being a college student who is busy with school, Greek life, clubs, you name it. The last thing you want to worry about during finals week is finding an apartment in New York without getting ripped off.

Students all over the country use Leaseful, so the location possibilities are seemingly endless. It’s straightforward, easy to use and a great way to avoid creepy Craigslisters. Leaseful puts your parents’ minds at ease by ensuring that you will be living in a safe apartment that is managed by a professional company. It’s also completely free to market your apartment on their website. The best part about Leaseful is that all your information is kept private. Once the reservation is confirmed, that then provides you with the host’s or renter’s contact information. After that, it’s up to you on how to work together to exchange keys, introduce roommates, etc.
