Can you imagine earning money for simply sitting on your sofa or lying in bed?

Well, here's your chance! We're looking for a Spotahome Home Tester who'll earn up to €1,000 per month to pay their rent for whichever flat they choose to live, and all they have to do is... Well, live there. Not bad, huh?

What's a Home Tester?

Basically you'll be a tenant in one of our apartments in London, Madrid or any of the other 9 cities we operate in and you'll live there, for free. Not bad, huh? Sorry, I already wrote that, but this is too cool!!

How Can I apply?


1. Create your application

Record your elevator pitch in a video (1 min. max) or take a photo of yourself and explain why we should "hire" you as our Home Tester. Be creative and convince us that you deserve 12 months free rent.
You can get inspired by other applicants by following the #12monthsfreerent hashtag on Instagram.

2. Upload to Instagram

Now let's get your video or picture online:

  • Publish your video or picture (make sure you have a public profile so we can see it)
  • Add the hashtag #12monthsfreerent,
  • Tag @spotahome in your post
  • Follow @spotahome
  • Share: Spread the word and get your friends to enter as well.
    Be quick - you only have until the 30th September 2019 to apply.

3. Wait to see if you'll be our  Home Tester

Our judges will select the winner, and we will announce the lucky candidate on the 4th of October. The new Home Tester will have €12,000 to pay their rent for a year in the flat of their choice.

I don't mean to bore you with the legal  details, but here's a bit more of useful information for you.
