We redesigned the Jetty Deposit purchase experience with an updated look and feel

We’re excited to share that we just launched an updated Jetty Deposit purchase experience, as part of our effort to make the process of getting signed up for Jetty as easy as possible.

This redesign improves the Jetty enrollment process in two ways:

  • Easier purchase experience. We updated the look and feel to make it easier for residents to purchase Jetty Deposit.
  • Reduced number of steps. We removed two steps to speed up the process and get leases signed more quickly.

Our design team accomplished these goals by making drastic changes to the visual language of the process, switching from…


New regulations show that legislators are paying attention, and underscore the magnitude of the affordability crisis

Housing affordability is a serious issue in the U.S.

The U.S. is in the middle of a housing affordability crisis, and the problem continues to grow. Rental costs are increasing, wages are stagnant, and the share of renter households that are considered “severely rent burdened” continues to grow year-over-year.

Still, renting is a more affordable option than buying in most major housing markets. As a result, more people are renting for longer — which only contributes to the shortage of housing inventory that fuels rental cost increases.

New regulations show that legislators are paying attention

In 2019, we’ve seen legislators across the country advocate for bills intended to address the lack of affordable rental housing.

Oregon imposed…


Making a splash at NAA’s Apartmentalize and learning what it takes to stand out in the crowded space of multifamily

A moment for brand

We’ve always believed that a strong brand is an essential part of connecting with renters and property managers. That’s why when we decided to have a booth at Apartmentalize, the National Apartment Association’s (NAA) biggest conference of the year, we approached the process of preparing the same way we approach everything else: with rigor and attention to detail.

As we developed ideas for our booth, we knew that we wanted to not only highlight the visual components of Jetty brand, but serve as an experience for everyone who stopped to see it. …

Our inaugural report on the state of renter sentiment in the U.S.

[Click here to jump to the full report]

Today’s renters are stressed.

They worry about making monthly rent payments, they struggle to afford up-front move-in costs — and they’re ready for change.

These are some of the problems we set out to solve at Jetty. And as we work toward accomplishing that goal — in fact, we’re already seeing that Jetty Members are more satisfied with the leasing experience than non-Members — we’re interested in fully understanding the challenges that renters face in the rental process.

That’s why for our inaugural Renter Sentiment report, we surveyed renters across a wide…


The first-ever platform built for properties to instantly approve students

We’re excited to announce Student Housing Express, the first-ever platform designed to speed up and simplify the leasing process for student housing property managers.

Strict guarantor requirements have long created problems for both students and property managers. These requirements not only stand in the way of housing for many students — either preventing them from getting approved for the buildings they want or leaving them with cost-prohibitive up-front fees — but they force student housing properties to turn away residents and therefore risk not filling units.

Now, with Student Housing Express, student housing properties can use Jetty Lease Guaranty to instantly approve qualifying students who aren’t able to get a traditional guarantor. This enables them to get leases signed faster and more easily than ever.
