CruxHaus

A mobile solution for the holistic rental experience.

 

 

Problem

Lots of digital products address different parts of the rental experience, but there are no holistic solutions.

 
 

People expect a digital experience for their commercial, business, and personal interactions.

Life is digital now. And if you’re a millennial, you spend 5.7-12 hours a day on your phone. All experiences are expected to have a digital component now; it’s not a value-add, it’s a basic requirement.

The rental experience process should digital, like everything else.

Why do so many renters still need to sign a lease in person, and pay rent by check (or by specific bank transfer), and then call to report issues? AirBnB is one of the few holistic solutions for temporary rentals. But there needs to be something for regular, lease-based housing.

There’s no one-stop-shop for managing your housing experience online.

There are great apps for finding housing, searching for roommates, splitting bills, and sending money. Even better would be one destination for signing a lease, communicating with your landlord, coordinating roommates, and managing payments.

 

The solution

CruxHaus lets you manage your housing experience from the palm of your hand.
Once you find housing, you can sign your lease online, add and manage roommates, communicate with your landlord, submit requests to solve issues in the home, then split bills and pay rent through our popular partner apps.

Stop using multiple apps to manage your housing situation.

Let savvy renters interact with their landlord and roommates the way they do with everyone else: online.

We’re not reinventing the wheel; we’re building a wheelhouse.

We’re not replicating Splitwise, Venmo, banking apps, email or text messaging. But the same way Slack streamlined business communications, Cruxhaus is streamlining communications, issue management, and payments for the rental experience.
