With RentFaster’s Map Feature and “My Faves” tab, finding and keeping track of your favorite homes for rent is simple. No longer do you need to save a link to a listing that you liked. Nor do you need to keep clicking the back button every time you look at a new listing. Now you can have them all in one place! Using your desired search criteria, search thousands of listings from every city, like ‘places to rent close to me (Victoria)’ or ‘places to rent near me (Vancouver)’,all on one scrolling page, liking them as you go. This avoids taking too much of your time switching back and forth within your favorites. The condensed favorite listing view lets you scroll through feature images and basic information (type of home, address, price, contact info, pet friendly rentals, etc.). That way you can favorite places of interest and do the deeper research later. Whether you like to look at rentals in list view or Map View, a “My Faves” page will appear. The “My Faves” tab is there to quickly see the listings you saved while keeping your other search where you left it.

The best way to keep your favorites in one organized place is to create an account. This will ensure that you can easily track and locate preferable listings on one page.

To save a favorite is as simple as finding a listing you like in any city and clicking the heart icon. When searching rentals (either in the Map View or the list view), there will be a small heart icon in the top right of the listing’s information. The heart will fill blue once you have favourited it, otherwise the heart will appear white (like this Victoria rental listing, for example). Once ‘favourited’, you can locate all your favourite listing in the “My Faves” tab. This is found on the top of the search page beside the tab “Search Results.”
The RentFaster “My Faves” feature is the best way to assess and compare your favorite listings. Use the Map Feature search, then click “My Faves” and your favorite listings will appear on the map! Your favorite rentals will also appear in list format beside the map to help compare the compressed basic information.
