It makes it much easier
Looking for an apartment in NYC is perhaps the least thing you wanna do here, yet with housing crisis, COVID19, fluctuating rents going up and up, fake advertising, shady basements apartments presented as penthouses and the absurd requests on income and elegibility, I can only say that StreetEasy makes all the difference. Starting with custom defined searches, where you can define price range, neighborhood, if in a coop or rental building, size of the apartment, square footage, subway lines…It filters thousands apartments to a manageable list. Then you can go to individual selections and zero in on apartments you actually would like to live. All that work done for you in minutes. Now if you find the place you absolutely love, the rest, the requirements, budgets, credit scores, how appealing you are as a tenant or how well everything is going to roll in your favor… that is a bit beyond what the app can do for you. In any case, Street Easy can make the whole experience much easier, saving lots of time, headaches and money, helping you find a new home.

Wonderful app, although no map view
This is a review of the app, specifically, and not streeteasy as an organization. The streeteasy app has been crucial in helping me find a home in NYC. Is still our primary form of residential searching, however it lacks a few features that I would consider fairly standard in this sort of app - chief among them being the ability to view listings in a map view. Unfortunately you need to click into each individual listing to see where it is located. Additionally it's not easy to apply filters via the mobile app (e.g. Pet friendly filter). Other than that, you can't beat the value this app provides in terms of filtering for no-fee listings!!

Organization & Search Options Need Improvement
I used this app to find my most recent apartment but found it extremely irritating that: 1) I could not search for a building specifically within the app via a search bar. I had to first google the building and then click the StreetEasy hyperlink which then would automatically pull up the app & the information on the building. 2) I could not organize my saved listings in order of me saving them (let’s say most recent). Instead, the best way to organize listings the app offers is by “recently updated”. This means I have to dig through my saved listings to try to remember which one I wanted to review again or share with my boyfriend to check out. This equals a lot of wasted time. 3) As other users have pointed out the filters could be improved to be more like what you get on the standard website. I’d like to be able to enter keywords into a search bar or from the start of a search enter things like pet-friendly, dishwasher, etc. At the beginning of the search. Not just neighborhood and budget.

App let’s real estate agents get away with things
So it’s not entirely StreetEasy’s fault, but I just saw an ad that said “Verified apartments” and let me tell you how much bull that is. I’ve set up lots of appointments to see apartments. First of all, I see the same apartment in there sometimes with different addresses. Secondly, they put whatever they want on the app and it’s not verified. I’ve seen lots of “750sq ft” apartments and when I press them for the size or a floor layout at least 50% of the times it’s 650 or less. 60% of the time the price is also adjusted to reflect that, but they just made me waste my time when I could be at work. I’ve lost money because of them. Start leaving bad reviews for real estate agencies on google that do this. App should ban companies that don’t list honestly. However, the app itself is really easy to use and not everyone is dishonest. I had to give it such a low review because the clean apartments are verified

Stop kidding yourself, app is terrible
We say this app is great but really it's the only real option we have right now. This is trash. Remember: if you aren't paying for the product, you ARE the product. StreetEasy/Zillow doesn't care about users. They care about property owners. They built and manage the app to serve them. Not you. I would gladly pay $5/month for an app that prioritizes my use, rather than annoying me constantly: * App ignores your preference to hide a property if owner pays to sponsor or feature. So something you know you don't want will still pollute your feed. They'll even send you emails and notifications when something changes - even if you have hidden that apt and the entire building. * They allow owners to post whatever photos they want, as long as they say "photos are representative of finishes." I don't want to see photos of a much nicer apt that I can't afford to lure me in. That's fraud. It's a straight up lie and Zillow knows they're doing it. They don't care. * Searching functionality is terrible. Saved search editing is painfully bad. This is on purpose. They want you to just create more searches rather than editing, so they can send you more emails and notifications. * Customer service will just placate you and do nothing. Again , they only care about property owners.

just downloaded the app
Been using the website for years, decided to try the app. the good: * monthly property taxes are shown for Condos * Floorplans are easy to view, without scrolling through all photos. THE BAD: * The map takes up 3/4 of my ipad screen and I can’t find a way to minimize it. * properties I have set ti hidden are still showing up in searches and I’m still receiving email notifications for them. * When I add a filter for “up to” in property taxes, I loose ALL Co-Op listings! * Property tax filter seems to be annual, not monthly as it appears in listing. * When filtering for cc’s and taxes, it would be helpful to have the ability to type in a dollar amount, instead of only being able to select from the choices given, or at least have more options

I don’t understand.
Literally tried to use the website and then they tell you if you want to have more search options download the app. Smh. It’s all over the website, “download our app”. Whatever. So I finally download the app and it doesn’t even work. I try to do a simple search and it’s just saying network error every time. And my WiFi worked fine. So stupid and frustrating. If you want people to use the app, at least try to get all the major bugs out so that the app is actually usable. Thank u next 💕

Very Average Ux
I expected a better user experience from an app of this caliber. A lot of the functionality is there, but there are some small but obvious features that are missing. When youre on the app multiple times a day searching for the right apartment, the lack of these features becomes apparent. Here are a few of them: When you’re several pages deep in a listing, there is no home button— you have to press this tiny back arrow sometimes five or six times to get back to the starting page. The new “hide listing” feature literally does not work. You can’t swipe through an apartment’s photos in the search results page, you have to go into the listing to view the photos. Videos autoplay, s sometimes they keep playing in the background when you’ve left the page.

I'm currently in the process of looking for a place, ready to take that big step and have found the task of finding an app to navigate the rugged terrain almost impossible, until I downloaded this one, I can't explain the exact reason, but for whatever the reason, it seems like everything comes together so perfectly with this one, even though they all tend to have the same places, this app is in a class by itself.

Terrible, awful, very bad, no good apartment searching
StreetEasy, now owned by Zillow, used to be the only game in town, but is now one of the absolute worst options for finding apartments in NYC. It still searches all the listings, but you can’t manage your selections, duplicative searches are constantly alerting you to the same apartments, and surprise, unscrupulous brokers are still listing contact bait offers that disappear from existence and list themselves in the wrong neighborhood. You can’t exclude most neighborhoods if you want only part of it, and on and on. Can’t find saved apartments. Can’t delete old searches. Can’t find folders. Developers: if you’re sick of your apps, destroy or open-source them. NEVER SELL. Because this is what happens.

Prepare for spam emails
The app is fine or whatever. But whenever you browse StreetEasy it automatically opts you into email spam for the search criteria you used. If you search for listings in one area, BOOM that’s an email list you just signed up for, then if you zoom out slightly or remove a criteria — TA-DA! You’re now the new member of another spam email list. I literally cleared my email subscriptions yesterday and I was on 5 different, but seemingly identical, lists today. Also, it’d be nice if there were exclusionary search terms and time specific options. Otherwise, I guess it’s okay.

Worst upgrade ever!!
I have been using your app for many years, but now it’s getting to the worst! Please change it back ASAP or I will delete it! The most recent upgrade disabled the common charge/ tax as a filtering option, and this change made this app useless and no better than any other RE apps like compass, Zillow, trulia. This option used to be your winning ticket. In nyc, particularly in Manhattan, we care way too much on the monthly costs including common charge & tax and this is one of the most critical factor for us deciding buying a condo!!! I will just delete this app and use trulia if this option is gone for good. I think the reason why you got rid of this filtering option is simply because you want more apartments to be seen, less “filter”, so you can earn more commission. But I can tell you that this won’t work and you will just lose more loyal users. Moreover, since you are the app branding yourself specializing in nyc, please make condop as a separate option. Condop is not a condo and plz don’t list those fraud together with condo when Ppl only want to purchase a condo. I

Street Easy for Landlords
Hello, I’ve been in the market for over a month looking to rent in NYC and reached out to tons of dozens of listings through Street Easy and their sister apps. Not a single person has got back to me, majority of the listings appear to be a scam, the listing has broker fees that they don’t provide up front or two different addresses with the same photos. I’m not too sure who is in charge or quality control in Brooklyn NY but they don’t have the renter as a priority. I’ve been giving out my phone number and email with nothing in return but a “confirmation email” that I reached out to a listing. I’m not sure who’s loyalty Street Easy is to but it sure ain’t the average people of NYC.

Great service, app is broken
The service that StreetEasy provides is invaluable, and this app could make that service even more accessible. But the login system does not work. I can log in and out in the browser just fine, but logging in on the app results in a cryptic error reading "The email or password previously entered has changed. Sign in again to sync your searches and saved listings." I've tried resetting my password multiple times, and even created a separate account, all to no avail. I guess I'll keep using StreetEasy without the app.

Great service, App needs work
Streeteasy has revolutionized the way people look for apartments. That being said, this app is missing many features that would make it outstanding. Chief among them is that the app lacks an ability to create a search subset, with various criteria, and then omit individual listings from that subset, like most databases have the ability to do. The app’s Mac version often defaults to a mobile design instead of a Desktop design. The ability to create notes on properties is sometimes available, sometimes not. There are many more bugs not worth mentioning.

StreetEasy is the best for NYC apartments
EDIT: They fixed the issue very quickly and swiftly :) StreetEasy is by far my favorite website for exploring apartments in NYC. But their app has been frustrating as none of the listings in the app that I save are actually saved to my account, so if I want to go back to an apartment I saw and really liked in the app, I have to somehow find it again among the thousands of apartment listings. I will gladly update my review to 5 stars (and really want to) once this is fixed!

Street Easy Is A 10 for the WIN!
Street Easy really helped me find my dream apartment! This app is life changing to me. It helped you set moving goals, set your preference, find out about future property listings for legit listings that are safe and within your price range. They constantly update you on new listings and are the premiere way to shop around for an apartment. I would love to do an official review and thank you for them to show my gratitude for how crucial this app was in moving me from a dangerous place to a safe, Fantastic space. Complete your profile. Add a Photo. Set your preferences. Set your Possible Moving Timeline. Turn on your notifications. And let Street Easy make life Breezy, to match you as the perfect prospect, to your dream new residence! Welcome Home!

Generally, good, but updates are meaningless when driven by brokers
There are some homes that meet my standards for the filters, but I don’t ever want to see an update for or even on my feed. Certain things are nonnegotiable for me like windows that look out onto another apartment building in an alley. I want to remove those from me ever receiving an update about them, or putting them in a list that is inactive so that my app isn’t updated daily by listing agents who are basically spamming my phone with badge ‘updates’ that i dont care about.

Slight change request for pet filter
I love the functionality, design, and depth this app has in everything EXCEPT one thing. The “Pets Allowed” filter is nice to have, but if it could be expanded to have a checkbox feature like the way the boroughs are broken down would be appreciated. A lot of apartments are cats only, but since I’m looking for one allowing dogs, I end up getting excited only to see in the description that they only allow cats.

Great app but would be interested in a roommate finder option
StreetEasy is like it says in the name-easy to use. What would be cool is if there was a roommate finder type of feature that can connect users to roommates who are also looking for apartments-as I’m sure a lot of people looking for apartments may not already have roommates, it would be a great way to connect with each other and then get connected to rentals as well

Realtors Always finding loopholes
I love this app as far as you do will not need a broker. And you can negotiate on your behalf and save yourself some money. However realtors have figured out how to remove listings and add so time listed and if they drop price isn’t as easily noticed. Brokers are trying to raise prices but realty no one is paying what things are listed for which is also frustrating bc is only states ‘last listed price’ not what it actually rented for. Not the app’s fault but they should do something about realtors being able to clear rental history.

Very good experience
Really nice app. Easy to use and mobile friendly. If I could make 2 improvement suggestions it would be to allow users to swipe through listing pictures on the apartment list page instead of having to click each individual listing and to add more filter options like only show listings with floorplans. Overall very good app!

Great App - Beware of “Free Rent”
I used this app to find my apartment, and I am very happy with the apartment. Ask the broker what the “gross rent” is because that’s what you really pay once a month. A lot of the listings show up within your budget and advertise free rent. What they don’t tell you is the free rent means you pay more per month, even though you pay the same by the end of the lease both ways. The app should really require gross and net rent to be disclosed for all listings. Otherwise 5 star app.

Streeteasy + buyers broker rebate = $$$
Found a broker (Prevu) that offers a rebate of 2% of purchase price. My broker earns 3% from seller, gives 2/3 back to me after close. They don’t hold your hand much during the process, but my wife and I were much happier using Streeteasy to find our apartment as compared to an old-fashioned Douglas Elliman broker who tried to shove us into apartments that we didn’t want and would have kept all that unearned commission.

Hi - the app works fine until we get notifications and try to activate them and it literally freezes on the “ Loading page” . I never get to see the content of the notifications ever. This is very frustrating and a big drawback and limitation. I might stop using the app because of this big problem which partly kills the purpose of the app .

What happened since Zillow bought streeteasy? Nyc rental market is a mess!
I’ve been searching for an apartment for a few months and all I can say is - thanks Zillow for buying StreetEasy, imposing silly fees (I’m told $3/day/apt) and now turning the nyc rental market into a big mess! I used StreetEasy for years and it was great! Now there is no single place to find apartments to rent that is inclusive and reliable. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I think The NY Times classifieds was a better system back 20 years ago... if you can’t get it right then put everything on MLS. I’m not in this business but I do know as a rental consumer I’m very frustrated.

The website is designed better and is faster
Streeteasy is a great tool for researching apartments in New York City. However the mobile app is not well designed and it’s pretty slow. The website has a better design and fewer bugs as well as being faster. Just one small example of the poor design of the app vs the website: when you look at the history of the apartments sold in a building the app doesn’t list them in chronological order and it doesn’t immediately show you the sale price of an apartment – you have to drill down in order to see the sale price.

good for finding apartments, bad for getting in touch with agents.
this app is excellent for finding listings, there are features to help sort by amenities, price point, etc. unfortunately it is very difficult to contact agents via the app, only the name and phone number are available, and not easily. you have to click "ask question" under the listing, then scroll all the way down to actually see the available information about the agent. messaging agents through the app is almost always unsuccessful, i've had to call directly or search online by name and agency to find other ways to contact them. this is an issue. it should not be this much of a hassle to contact someone. otherwise a useful app.

Please Add Puerto Rican Numbers
The app is great, found my first place through StreetEasy and currently looking for my second apt now. I did notice that StreetEasy doesn’t count Puerto Rican numbers as US. Can you please update this as im certain hundreds of Puerto Rican’s move into the city each year but go with other platforms where they can put their number down as we are Americans.

Shrinking listings and poor use of mailing list
While the mailings say the market is becoming more of a buyer’s market, I see always the same listings and little if any pricing changes. Emails from the company are completely off-target; I am bombarded by emails on rentals, whereas my searches should show the company I’m not a renter. I am always receiving information about properties that are at a completely different price point and location than my searches indicate are within my interest.

Truthfully, this app was pivotal and getting an idea of New York real estate and making connections with people along the way, but the inability to unsubscribe and constantly being rerouted to more and more pages, and getting 10 to 20 emails a day is absolutely outrageous and caused me to hate the app. I found a spot and just wanted to unsubscribe not only do I keep getting emails after I was told I was unsubscribed, when I tried to do it again, it keeps rerouting me to more listings rather than unsubscribing. It’s spammy

Beware of spam
Once you contact an agent for a listing, a whole lot of people will call you about being your buyer’s agent. The actual listing agent will rarely respond. Also, there is no way to search for just Manhattan below 100 Street, which they should change.

awesome app and not much personal info
this app is great! it doesn’t require a ton of personal information, and it’s really easy to navigate, unlike sites like craigslist. i love how specific you can get with the neighborhoods. the only thing i don’t like is that i wish people were required to check yes or no for specific amenities, like there could be a drop down menu with a yes or no next to the specific amenities, as often times listings don’t specify if the apartment allows pets or if there’s a doorman. that isn’t really a problem with the app itself, though

Thank you so much for including: - distance to work (commute time) - map view - filter by train line (!!!) - flags on saved apts: “off-market”, “on contract” - open house info - easy on-off switch for notifications/updates on a search I would love to view saved listings/searches in order of the time length of commute! It’s one of the first things I look at on every listing. In a future update, I’d find an additional sorting option for commute time extremely helpful!

Great app, but there is a glaring flaw. Saving a search that you have opted in to email updates for will disappear from your account after you kill the app. Since email alerts stay, but the saved search doesn’t save in app, there’s no real way to disable the email alerts or view your saved searches in app. Very frustrating.

Make it more user convenient.... for god sakes.
It would be GREAT, if it was more user convenient meaning: 1) instead of pressing the arrow to go back to apartment listing, how about just swiping right to return to the listing. It’s annoying to have to press the arrow honestly. 2) please, please, please check for scam listings. Too many times do an see apartment has been rented out from one realtor, scroll down and there goes the apartment again. Why is that!?! Realtor are copy photos?!? Fix that. Basically be more incentive to be on the app and protects the users searching for new homes.

Stop sending apartments
I've been trying to stop the app and website from sending apartments. We signed a lease over a month ago and I still get places daily. I get a notification, go to the site, find some other toggle to click. Next day, more places. I run a mobile device shop so I'm hardly tech illiterate. I assume most people uninstall the app and block emails when they're done? I still want sales listings. I don't want rentals. Jesus. It's a mess.

Why support both if you only are allowed to use one?? Additionally there’s an annoying bug where saved searches always say, “All Caught Up” even if there are new listings on them.
