System Updates as of April 1, 2020, 1:07p.m.
At approximately 9:23am CST on April 1st, our application’s systems encountered a temporary error. Our servers required an adjustment to the higher-than-average rent week traffic. As soon as our teams were alerted that systems were not functioning as expected, we immediately pivoted to resolve the issue by opening additional servers to take on the demand. We recognize and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this morning’s outage caused.
