About Homie

What is Homie?

We’re a team of London renters that use local experience and our custom-made technology to help renters to find great homes.

Our Homies are able to search through all portals and agencies to find the perfect homes for your needs, we only show you available homes that not only look good on paper but are worth viewing in real life.

The result is a fast, low-stress way of finding your next home.

When you say I'll have a 'Homie'... What does that mean?

Homies are our friendly employees who are trained to select the best homes for you and will be with you at every step of your home search.

From deciding where to live to attending viewing tours with you, our Homies have your back.

Are you an estate agency or relocation service?

Neither. We are a property technology business.

Our team rents in London, and know how hard it can be to find somewhere to live. We were built to make it easier for everyone without a hefty price-tag.

Can you help me decide where to live?

Yes. Your Homie knows London like the back of their hand and will guide you through the pros and cons of different areas and commute options until you have found the one for you.

What types of homes can Homie find me?

Any type, within reason. We can find you furnished or unfurnished, houses or flats, ultimate luxury or great value for money.

Just let us know what you have in mind.

I'm looking for a home in an area that you don't currently cover - can you help?

Ask us. We are expanding our areas as fast as we can.

If you are looking nearby it may be possible, but otherwise you might have to wait to use us for your next move.

I haven't arrived in London yet, can you still help me?

Yes, absolutely.

Simply let us know what you are looking for and when you’d like to move in – your Homie can help you decide which area of London is best for you. We are happy to arrange a multi-agent viewing tour for when you arrive.

I'm looking on behalf of someone else, can you help me?

Yes, of course.

When you sign up, just leave us a note explaining and we will hurry to help you on your quest.

Could you help me buy a home?

No. For the moment we are solely dedicated to helping renters find homes.

Can you help me find a room in a flat-share, or match me with potential housemates?

No. This is not something that we currently offer – however, you are more than welcome to come and use our service once you’ve found your future flatmates.

Do you help people find short-term lets?

Unfortunately not. We currently only offer our service to renters looking to stay for 6 months or more.

If I sign up, does that mean I have to use Homie?

No. Obviously we hope you will, but if your circumstances change or you find something on your own then we can say adieu until next time!

What's the deal with refunds?

If you are in any way dissatisfied with our service we’ll offer you a full refund and ask you how we can do better next time.

What's next?

Simply sign up with us and your Homie will get in touch as soon as possible to pin down what exactly you are looking for and guide you all the way to the finish line.

How long have you been doing this and why didn't I hear about you sooner?!

We got started in 2016 and have been growing ever since. At the moment we rely on renters like you to help us spread the word, so please tell your friends if you’ve had a great experience!
