Kinizi, Groupon for Apartments

I get a record number of daily deal emails – Groupon (recently purchased $50 at Nordstrom Rack), Tippr (recently purchased 50% of Evo), Deal Pop (recently purchased 50% off a haircut at Emerson Salon), The Clymb (tempted often by outdoor gear but no purchase yet), One Kings Lane (home decor, but not my style), Gilt (tempted often but no purchase yet) and the list goes on.

Now, there’s a daily deal site for apartments getting started right here in Seattle. Meet Kinizi that demo’d at TechStars a few weeks ago.

Their first deal, a $6,000 savings at Aspira, looked promising but looks like that’s been their one and only deal. Wonder which apartment we’ll see try them out next?

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

    At $2,200/month for a 1 bedroom with low end finishes (laminate countertops!) , the Aspira deal is a good example of marking something up 20% and then discounting it by 30%. The overall savings isn’t impressive.

    Aspira is truly a triumph of marketing style over substance. I even heard them mentioned on NPR with their generous rent specials. No mention of their pricing at about 60% over market, or the Denny Triangle neighborhood being a work in progress.

    Apartment renting is not something the average person does on a daily basis or even once per year. Often times many years pass between times that we need to find and rent an apartment and thus we are often not very adept when we have to choose the best apartment for rent purposes.There are many aspects of renting that need to be considered when making a choice for a residence, but most of the time it simply comes down to personal taste and value.
