Sunroom is radically simplifying the way people rent their homes.
For the average renter, leasing a home is filled with stress and uncertainty. We have reimagined the end-to-end experience, so renters can self-tour properties, apply, & lease inside our app. Our partners, real estate agents and property managers use our platform to take care of all the hassle from photos, yard sign setup, marketing to back-office operations. Our platform gives full visibility into every aspect of leasing.
We have raised over $11 million from top-tier investors including Founders Fund Seed, Gigafund, and Tim Draper. Our investors have also backed the likes of SpaceX, Tesla, and Facebook.
