Add a listing through our submission form. Be as detailed as possible, this is the information that potential tenants will see while deciding on what property to move into. But make sure to be as accurate as possible, if your post is misleading at all, you will be held liable.
Pop Rooms features two types of listings for landlords and agents: Apartments and Rooms. If you are managing an apartment with multiple rentable rooms, we recommend creating all of your room listings first and then your apartment listing so that you can select all of the individual rooms as “Related Listings” so that people can easily switch between the rooms that exist in the same apartment. For studios and private apartments, we also recommend making both an apartment and room listing for maximum exposure.
Monitor the progress of your listings through your Dashboard and easily sort through all of your listings through the My Listings page. You can also make edits to any of your submissions by visiting the listing page and clicking edit next to the title.
If your property is rented through some other means off of Pop Rooms, change the availability status of your property so that tenants know that it is no longer vacant.
Once tenants have confirmed their interest in renting your property we will confirm with you and create a contract in English for the tenant to sign and a contract in Traditional Chinese for you to review.
Please be aware that if we suspect that you used Pop Rooms to find tenants but arranged off of our platform for tenants to move in and pay rent, your account may be penalized or deactivated.
Every month, tenants will pay Pop Rooms the amount agreed upon in your contract, we will subtract our 12% commission fee and transfer you the remaining amount via your preferred transfer method. Unless another arrangement has been agreed upon by all parties, the tenant will pay the deposit directly to you when they receive the keys to the property. Upon moving out, it is your responsibility to return the deposit.
