About Homie

What is Homie?

We’re a team of Londoners that use local experience and homemade technology to help renters to find great homes. Our tech puts every home available onto a single platform, which our Homies curate to show you the cream of the crop. We then use our team’s familiarity with the local housing market to ensure that the homes we suggest aren’t just good on paper, they’re 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?

Our Homies are our friendly employees who streamline every step of finding your new home. This means helping you decide where you want to live, what your budget is, searching the entire market for you and even booking & attending your viewings. Every renter that signs up is allocated an experienced Homie to be there through thick and thin.

Are you an estate agency or relocation service?

No. 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 will guide you through the pros and cons of different areas and various transport times until you’ve narrowed down your options.

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.

Which areas do you cover?

Kensington (e.g. South Kensington, High Street Kensington, Gloucester Road)
Earl’s Court (e.g. West Brompton, West Kensington)
Chelsea (e.g. Sloane Square, Fulham Road, King’s Road)
Knightsbridge (e.g. Belgravia, Hyde Park Corner)
Mayfair (e.g. Bond Street, Oxford Street, Green Park)
Fitzrovia (e.g. Great Portland Street, Tottenham Court Road, Holborn)
Marylebone (e.g. Baker Street, Regent’s Park)
Paddington (e.g. Edgeware Road, Marble Arch)
Bayswater (e.g. Queensway, Lancaster Gate)

Westminster (e.g. Victoria, Pimlico)

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

Yes, absolutely. Simply sign up with us and let us know what you need. We are happy to arrange the viewings for when you arrive, or our team can view homes on your behalf so you can move in upon arrival.

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.

I'm a student, do you offer any discounts?

Yes. We offer a 50% discount to students from London universities, as well as a great referral scheme for those who help us spread the word.

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.

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 wait for your Homie to get in touch. They’ll find out exactly what it is 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! To say thank you we will even offer you a £22 search discount for both you and your friend.

You guys are amazing, can I join the team?
