Norfolk, Va. (October 15, 2014) – Homes.com®, leading online real estate destination, has announced its partnership with four new rental property management companies — Free Rental Site, Rentec Direct, Real Property Management and ShowMojo. These partnerships will add more than 168,000 single-family rental listings, growing Homes.com’s single-family database by over 30 percent and providing more choices for consumers looking for their next rental home.
With these new relationships, Homes.com will offer expanded coverage of partner listings to the 12 million unique visitors who come to Homes.com on a monthly basis. More than a third of these visitors search for information in the rentals section of Homes.com, with leads sent directly to property managers.
“Homes.com is excited to add quality partners like Free RentalSite, Real Property Management, Rentec Direct and ShowMojo to provide a more robust inventory of rental listings on Homes.com,” said Dave Mele, president of Homes.com. “These partnerships not only provide residential property companies with more traffic and leads, but also give consumers looking for rental homes more options.”
“Homes.com has been a great partner to ShowMojo and our customers,” said Peter Schuh, founder and chief executive officer of ShowMojo. “Their clean and intuitive presentation makes it easy for prospective renters to find our customers’ rentals, then schedule a showing to see the place.”
Timothy Sedgwick, senior manager of strategic partnerships at Real Property Management, said, “Real Property Management is excited about our relationship with Homes.com. It will enhance our ability to cut down vacancies by placing residents faster than ever, thus making the home owner’s return on investment higher.”
