Faros is an online housing marketplace that connects renters and hosts. We're on a mission to be the go-to platform for renters looking for a furnished place to stay for 1+ months. We help people find housemates to live with and soon new people to meet once moved in.
Through Faros, property managers, homeowners, and subletters list their space on the Faros public marketplace. Renters browse furnished apartments, find compatible housemates if needed, and request to rent spaces. After the host accepts the renter, the renter pays their deposit and sends their monthly rent through Faros.
Faros was founded in October 2016 by Jack Forbes, Zach Waterfield, and Courtney Sabo.
