About HousingAnywhere & Kamernet*
HousingAnywhere is Europe's largest rental accommodation marketplace, with 10 million unique visitors per year and 60,000+ properties available for rent. Young professionals and students looking to rent a home are matched with accommodation providers, ranging from private real estate owners to large-scale property managers. Tenants typically rent accommodation for 3 to 12 months. As a Rotterdam-based technology scale-up, we employ more than 150 people and we are focused on 32 key cities throughout Europe, with plans to rapidly expand our footprint.
Kamernet is the largest platform for rental properties in The Netherlands since 2000. We bridge housing supply and demand by understanding our users’ needs and providing them with the most efficient tools for renting (out) a room, studio or apartment.
