Friends With Money #57: Rent Rabbit: rate your landlord


Renting a property can be a long-term financial commitment, and quite often, you have to make the decision to rent with little to no information. Signing a lease, after only having a brief inspection of a property, can lead to months of frustration and distress.

So how do you avoid the pitfalls of the rental market?

This week on the Friends With Money podcast, Money's Michelle Baltazar chats with Ben Pretty, co-owner and founder of Rent Rabbit, a new online service that provides detailed information on not only the property you're considering leasing, but the landlord or real estate agent as well.
