We make your search for an apartment fun, easy, and cool—you deserve the best rental experience possible.

Skylight, a new mobile platform that eases the frustration of house and apartment hunting in New York City, recently announced that it raised $500,000 to reform NYC real estate. The free iOS and Android app, which is hailed the “Tinder for apartments,” received investment from Tim Draper, Marc Benioff, and Great Oaks VC.

According to the company’s landing page, Skylight reinvents real estate by simplifying the hunt for NYC apartments. The app boasts several interesting features: it allows users to browse verified, fresh, and up-to-date listings; chat instantly with agents, all of whom are pre-approved by Skylight; save cool apartments for quick reference; and share favorite apartments with friends. Above all, Skylight is interesting to search through, reliable, and easy to use.

Skylight prides itself on providing the best rental experience possible. Renting in NYC has never been easier due to Skylight’s intricate and well-maintained database, which prevents duplicate or outdated listings from showing up on the app. The apartment app was created to put the renter first, helping them to avoid sifting through long lists of questionable or expired apartment listings.

“We built Skylight because we know it doesn’t have to be frustrating to find apartments or houses,” stated a representative of Skylight. “The other guys offer clunky map interfaces, and endless questionable lists that feel like they haven’t been updated since 1995. We make your search for an apartment fun, easy, and cool—you deserve the best rental experience possible.”

Individuals interested in looking for NYC apartments for rent are invited to download the app through the App Store or Google Play, free of charge. For more information about Skylight, NYC apartment seekers can visit the app’s main website or subscribe to its Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram accounts.
