About Cios

6 years ago, a roommate dropping out cost us over $4,800 because we couldn’t find a sublet fast enough.

With all the options available online for listing sites, why did it take so long?

It was because of 3 clear reasons:

  1. Listing sites are designed for landlords, not tenants looking to sublet
  2. Listing sites have a real scam issue (see: Facebook Marketplace)
  3. Rent payments for sublets are a disaster

With rent (and tuition) on the rise across North America, these challenges getting in the way of subletting are going to be way more important.

That’s why we built Cios — to make subletting an apartment easy, fast, and safe, even if you’ve never done it before.

Since launching in 2022 we’ve already helped hundreds of renters (just like you!) find a sublet. I’d love for you to give it a try.
