Apartment inspection app RentSpek launches mobile web version in early November.

CHICAGO, Ill. – Landlord Advisor, LLC announced an early November beta launch of its new free mobile web app RentSpek for iPhone and Android. The app allows renters to conduct a thorough inspection of homes and apartments for rent to help streamline their search. The system is designed to increase transparency in the rental process and help tenants ‘rent with confidence’.

“I think the simplicity of the app is what will make it useful. The app walks the user through the property and has them check things they may never have looked at during a walk though before,” said Phil Castello, founder of Landlord Advisor, LLC. “Because renters have an endless list of sites and services to search for a place, we think RentSpek will be the prefect tool to help choose their apartment.”

RentSpek users can add notes or pictures to they're inspection using their phones cameras. The whole process should take less than 30 mins. The user can then revisit the RentSpek reports to compare the properties they’ve toured.

The grade RentSpek developed is based on the same home inspections homebuyers would purchase before buying a home. Landlord Advisor dissected those and developed a unique scoring system based on issues that could arise during a short term living situation. They have a patent pending on this system and have recently filed documents for a full patent.

Castello said the longer term plan for RentSpek is to provide crowd sourced information for rental listings on our Parent site Landlord Advisor and a feature certification feature allowing Landlords to show that their property is “RentSpek Certified.”

“As the RentSpek system gets more home data, I don’t see any reason that this system couldn’t replace the traditional home inspection all together.”

The mobile web version of the RentSpek app will launch in early November. A crowd funding campaign has been set up on to raise the $55,000 to build a native mobile app.

Landlord Advisor ( was founded by Phil Castello in 2012. With the development of RentSpek Paul Zimmerman has joined Landlord Advisor LLC as a Limited Partner.
