QuintoAndar

QuintoAndar is a Brazilian company who offers an online rental platform which allows renters to find a rental without a co-signer, deposit or rental insurance and offers landlords protection against insolvent renters.

QuintoAndar offers a platform where users can explore, book, rent and promote properties online. They use a proprietary credit analysis algorithm to take care of contract compliance and erase the need for renters to have co-signers, deposits or rental insurance.



They guarantee landlords they will get their rent every month; guaranteed through QuintoAndar's credit analysis and insurance program. They offer landlords protection against damages to their property and a network of service providers to repair or maintenance a property through their platform.



Through their platform, and their app, renters can book a viewing to an apartment. The viewing can be accompanied by a certified rental agent. The rental agent is coordinated in a fashion similar to Uber drivers.



After viewing, the renter can negotiate directly with the landlord, sign the rental contract online along with their rental guarantees.
