Website and Business model[edit]

Padlist stated it's an online real estate and apartment market place which generates revenue through selling listing space to landlords. The site matches users with a property based on their lifestyle. Users can engage with a free local expert or fill out a questionnaire and search on their own. Listings are displayed at their addresses, allowing users to conduct a location-based search. In 2019, Padlist announced a partnership with Kathy Ireland, whose business was estimated to do 2.6 billion in retail and Ireland estimated to have a net-worth of $420 million. Ireland's serves as “Chief Editor and Ambassador” for Padlist.[2][3]

Padlist also owns a local real estate firm Padfinders based in Washington, DC.[citation needed] in 2019 Padlist won the Early Sage award by American City Business Journals's Inno category.[4]

Padlist announced a $2 million raise now allows renters to pay rent online to their landlords for properties on the Zillow Rental Manager tool. Zillow charges renters a transaction fee when using Debit or Credit Cards to pay their landlord. However, Renters also have a no-fee option to pay their rent by using ACH.[5][6][not in citation given]
