How it works

Create your listing

Simply upload your listing details, photos/media, and open house schedule. With our FRBO+ package, you can feature your listing so it remains atop the search results page for renters looking at homes like yours.

Publish your listing

Your listing appears not just on StreetEasy but Zillow, Trulia, and Hotpads as well. So sit back and watch the prospective renters come in. Note: It takes 24-48 hours to verify and publish your listing. We may ask you to provide proof of ownership with a mortgage or tax statement, lease, or utility bill.

Manage your listing

The Owner Tools page lets you track how your listing is performing among renters, change its status, or update the open house schedule.

StreetEasy has a zero tolerance policy for inaccurate or false postings.


Reach NYC's biggest audience

StreetEasy and Zillow Group's other consumer brands have on average 70% of market share for the online real estate category in NY.1

Create an eye-catching listing with ease

Feature your listing to take it to the next level. In 2023, FRBO+ listings averaged 311% more renter contacts on StreetEasy than standard FRBO listings.

Keep tabs on your listing’s performance

The Owner Tools page gives you a clear view of how renters are interacting with your listing. We make it easy to stay in touch with what’s working, what can be improved, and how to adjust.

Host tours on your schedule

With FRBO offerings on StreetEasy, you have control of your open house schedule and interact with interested buyers at your own pace. If you’re ready, we’re here to help you rent your home on your time.


Our For Rent By Owner offering includes two package options, priced at a flat fee, for a duration of two weeks.




$250 — Includes Featured Listing

Want to boost your listing’s exposure? Feature it with FRBO+. As a Featured Listing, your home will continue to appear at the top of the rentals search feed and reach people looking for apartments like yours — regardless of how many days it’s been on the market.

Frequently asked questions

We’ll need one to two business days to verify the listing you submit. If you’re posting a FRBO listing on StreetEasy for the first time, or if you’re advertising a new property, we’ll need some extra documentation confirming you own the property. Copies of your lease, utility bills, or mortgage and tax statements are all acceptable forms of verification. As soon as your ownership is verified, your listing will be approved and live on StreetEasy and Zillow sites. It expires two weeks from the date and time it was approved.
Potential renters will reach out to you via phone or email, displayed in the contact box on your listing. Emails will be sent to the address you have on file in your StreetEasy account, so be sure to double check the appropriate email is linked to your account! Regularly check your inbox and any additional folders you have, as these emails might filter to different folders depending on your email settings.
