New App ‘Lovely’ Attempts To Make Finding A New Apartment Just That, Lovely

Sometimes trying to find a new place to live can be a daunting task. There are lots of reasons why people might put this off. The overall experience can be somewhat of a bit annoying, and sometimes it’s just hard to find the right place that you can feel comfortable about calling “Home”. Then there’s the matter of driving all over the place to look at different Apartment complexes that you may have already looked at online, which is necessary, but can be time consuming. Yes, looking for a new apartment can sometimes be undesirable, that’s not to say that it can’t ever be enjoyable though. Furthermore, it can be easier than you think. It can honestly be downright Lovely. At least, that’s what a new app called Lovely is aiming to do for the would be apartment shopper.

This new app is part of the website, and presumes to give the user who is on the hunt for a new place to live, an easy way to do so in an interface they’re familiar with. With the Lovely app, there’s really no need to hop on the website and do your searches, you can do it all from the app, and you can even use the app to pay your rent! The features will more than likely come with a few caveats, but should everything go swimmingly you’ll be on your way to a new place in no time. Once you’ve found it, there’s just the matter of moving all your things. If only there were a way to transport it all there in the exact spot you’d want it without having to lift a finger. All jokes aside, Lovely is actually an extremely useful app that makes searching for new apartments easy and fun. Not to mention quick. You can submit rental applications right through the app, as well as look at listings in your area, with the listings showing photos of the inside of each apartment home so you can alleviate having to actually go and see the apartment in person. You might still want to physically set foot in the place you’re interested in, but the ability to weed that part out if you so choose is just a nice feature.

With the rent pay feature, renters can now pay their rent directly through the app itself, and set up recurring payments to be made on the same day every month so that you never miss a rent payment. The app isn’t just for apartments either, as it works for anyone who’s seeking a new Home to rent as well. The rent payments require an agreement to be made with your landlord of course, but once that hurdle is over, the feature works quite nicely, giving both you and your landlord a confirmation when the payment has been made. It’s a strange way to think about paying for rent, but it certainly makes more sense given the times we live in, and especially when you think about all the other bills we might incur each month that are available to be paid electronically. If you want to give Lovely a try, you can grab the free app from the Play Store now.
