Providing young professionals with a better way to live and giving landlords complete peace of mind since 2004

At Placefinders , we have two core propositions. We provide young professionals with a better way to live and experience Reading and we give landlords complete peace of mind by guaranteeing their rental income and the condition of their properties. These two core drive everything

Our business  is simple; we rent great properties and then transform them into homes for our members on a room by room basis. Whether you’re a landlord looking to rent your house or a young professional looking for somewhere to call home, Placefinders  is more than just a house share.


Included as standard

All of our rooms vary in size and shape, but these features are included as standard:

+ Flat screen TV & Virgin media

+ Council tax & all bills included

+ Fully furnished

+ Wifi ( high speed)

+ Weekly housekeeper

+ Cleaning supplies included

+ Members discounts & benefits

+ Over 6 member socials each year


It’s all about the experience

With Placefinders  you’ll find our rooms are all inclusive, to make budgeting in Reading that little bit easier. The homes come fully set up – to the point where you’ll just need bedding when you move in. The rate includes all bills.There is a weekly cleaner and we provide all cleaning products to allow you more time to focus on the more important things in life, such as exploring Reading.

Landlords, you’ll have a dedicated team member looking after your house. They’ll run quarterly property inspections and do regular touch ups to maintain your property to the high standard it deserves. If you’re looking to free up your time we can manage your property for you and you can sleep easy knowing that your house is being looked after and you have guaranteed rental return.


Who will be living in your house?

Landlords, you want to know we’re putting responsible young adults into your house. Members, you need to trust us to find you great housemates to live with you in your home. We have established a vibrant community of members who have all been through our selective interview process. They’re professionals who looking to build their life in Reading much like the majority of our landlords once were. We’re looking to create sociable house shares, where our members not only have their housemates to help expand their social networks, they can meet everyone in the community too. We run socials for our members every eight weeks – these vary from weekends out to activities such as hiking or wine tasting. We understand who our members are and what they’re looking for in their Reading  life.
