Our Mission

At Sublet.com, our mission is to provide a global marketplace where tenants and landlords can match ALL their rental housing needs. Sublet.com is not just for Sublets!  At Sublet.com, people from all over the world sign leases from one day to one decade; furnished and unfurnished, with roommates and without, with pets and without, with good credit and with bad credit, and at all price ranges. Sublet.com prides itself on maintaining a complete and updated database of every kind of rental anywhere in the world. Whether your rental situation is unique or ordinary, we can help you realize your rental needs.

Sublet.com makes the rental process easy!

Before Sublet.com, the rental process was an overwhelming task that required tremendous effort, door to door travel, and usually a real estate agent fee. Sublet.com has simplified the process of renting apartments and rooms by creating a full service rental medium where Landlords and Tenants meet without exhausting efforts or agents. Most rental agreements are 90% completed before you have to leave your computer terminal.

Posting Rentals
Landlords, leaseholders and property managers post their apartment and house rentals or rooms for rent with detailed descriptions and photographs. Sublet.com makes amenities available such as tenant background reports and real estate contracts.

Searching Rentals and Contacting

Prospective tenants search the Sublet.com database of apartment rentals and rooms for rent using proprietary search software and store all potential rentals in a personalized database.  From this personalized web page, tenants contact landlords and leaseholders via phone or email. 

Updated Rental Property Database
To make the rental process quick and easy, Sublet.com posts 1000's of new listings every week and updates its database of apartment rentals and rooms daily. In over 7 years of business, Sublet.com has an industry leading 85% availability rate.

How it all started

In 1998, as a student at Columbia Business School, I decided to take an internship in London for the summer.  Since I could not afford to pay two rents and did not want to give up my NYC apartment, I started calling "sublet wanted" notices posted at bus stops, subway stations, and student message boards. To my astonishment, I sublet my apartment in two days and was passing the incoming referrals to my classmates.  Everything worked out in one satisfying transaction; I did not have to pay two rents or give up my apartment and a fellow graduate student from Chicago had a great apartment for her summer internship in Manhattan. The transaction went so smooth I started designing an Internet Marketplace where everyone in the world could match their rental needs and the Sublet.com was born.

Today, Sublet.com is a division of Spyder Web Enterprises, which also manages MetroRoommates.com. Spyder Web Enterprises network of sites offers a full array of rental availabilities directly from owners, property managers or sublettors nationwide.

In the News

One of our clients has been quoted in an article in the New York Times.

"Finding sublets, he said, has been easy. Each time, he logs onto www.sublet.com, types in his requirements and after paying a fee, gets access to the phone numbers of people who match his needs. He could easily find a new place in a day, he said, although he usually gives himself a week of lead time."

Landlord Testimonials

Dear Mr. Miller and Spyder Web,

I am thoroughly computer illiterate but your system makes it possible for me to sublet my property because it is so easy. Again, I am amazed by the patience and kindness of everyone I have spoken to in your office. One man, closing up one night, stayed another half hour to clear up an item for me and walk me through the steps I needed walking through.

Sincerely, - Virginia

Dear Sublet.com,

I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude for helping me find a place to live in New York City. I had to relocate to New York from Los Angeles for a job promotion, but I was worried that I would be scammed out of my money by one of the many housing websites or end up paying an unnecessary fee to a broker. I was referred to your site by a co-worker and it paid off.

I found a place in less than a week AND I didn't have to pay a broker's fee! Once again, thank you and I hope your site helps others like it helped me.

Thank you,
