Renting Simplified

Real NYC apartments without the hassle or broker fees.

How it works


Search our pads

Padspin works with landlords and outgoing tenants to get access to apartments before they hit the market, allowing you to bypass brokers and their fees.


Schedule a viewing

Once you find an apartment you like, book a viewing online. We'll make sure the landlord or outgoing tenant is there to show it to you.

Padpsin for Landlords

Reserve your new pad

If you love an apartment you've seen through Padspin, you can reserve it. We'll freeze the listing so no one but you can apply. Padspin's service costs $400, which you only pay if you sign a lease.
