Making renting better for everyone
The world of lettings is stuck in a time warp. It’s no surprise that landlords and tenants are fed up. Discover on the Howsy About Us page, our mission to make renting better for everyone and how the journey began.
It’s no surprise that landlords and tenants are fed up. The cost, the service, the inefficiency, it’s a model that just isn’t working.
Meet Howsy. A new concept designed to shake up the way renting works for good. We’re on a mission to create a simple, intuitive and fairly priced experience that’s powered by new ideas and brilliant technology.
Mixing smart tech and know-how, we have a deep understanding of what renters want and landlords need. We know the world of renting can be tough – boilers do break down at weekends, but it’s our job to fix things efficiently, honestly and with a smile on our face. It is possible to combine a great deal with low-cost service.
A home you love
We understand what it’s like to be a tenant and a landlord. Contrary to popular opinion, they’re not on opposite sides but in fact united by their love of the same thing. It goes beyond bricks and mortar – it’s about finding and making a home you love.
It’s in our nature to question. How can we do things differently? How can we help? How can we do better? We intend to keep questioning, so we can make Howsy the only way to rent and manage property.
