    What people are saying

    Before CrashDwell, I browsed Craigslist for hours, and almost every post was full of false information or scams. It was a total disaster. CrashDwell completely transforms the subletting and apartment search experience. I would totally recommend it.

    Subletting is difficult because you are letting someone else live in your space. CrashDwell lets you go beyond just the people that you know, but at the same time it’s people you can trust. It’s an easy way of getting the stressful process of subletting done quickly.
