For a long time, hunting for an apartment in LA meant wading through cryptic yard signs, inscrutable classifieds and frustrating games of phone tag. To find a place in LA, a renter has to scan yard signs, scour Craigslist, stop by leasing offices and search a bevy of websites big and small. No single source shows everything on the market all at once, not even close.

Add in the challenge of tracking down landlords by phone, enduring the often-opaque application process and racing fellow renters to be first in line, finding an apartment can become a disappointing, time-consuming ordeal. It is the frustration of many LA renters especially as rents rise and vacancy rates fall.

Thousands of renters in the Bay Area, Seattle, and now Los Angeles can easily find their dream homes through a simple, renter-friendly experience online at no cost. It’s a better and more efficient alternative to standard listing sites. Renters on Onerent can visit any of our properties on-demand, at no cost.

Despite Federal, State, and Local laws prohibiting housing discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, mental disability, physical disability (HIV & AIDS included), familial status (children), marital Status, age, sexual orientation, source of income, student status, and other arbitrary reasons, a chart based on a U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development study shows a pattern of discrimination against minorities.
