Monteville, NJ – August 15, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — DoNotRent.com is a revolutionary real estate website geared to helping people find apartments for rent but also providing them with the most relevant resources related to finding an apartment.
A full service website, DoNotRent.com provides listings and user reviews on apartments, student housing, rental homes for rent and information on real estate agents and property managers in every city in the United States, ensuring users can get all of the pertinent information they need to have prior to signing a lease. In addition to listings and reviews the site also offers rental data for every city, important local links and a search map powered by the WalkScore widget to browse nearby places. This widget allows users to type the address of a rental and find out what businesses, parks, restaurants and more are located nearby.
DoNotRent.com’s services are free for renters and users can instantly search listings, reviews, rental data and nearby resources in every city across the country. Ideal for renters, DoNotRent.com is also the number one review site for landlords and property managers to claim their properties in order to respond directly to reviews and promote available units.
“DoNotRent.com is the only all-inclusive site for your rental needs,” said Cerny. “Whether you visit our site for real up-to-date apartment reviews, rental data, moving quotes or if you are searching for a roommate, DoNotRent.com will assist you along every step of the way.”
In addition to the assortment of services offered to prospective renters and landlords, DoNotRent.com is the first website of its kind to incorporate social media tools such as the ShareThis widget as a way for users to interact and share reviews and pages on their favorite social networking sites.
“Our real and current user reviews help prospective tenants ask landlords tough questions before signing a lease,” said Cerny. “Our goal with DoNotRent.com is to be the go to site for tenants to get the information they need in order to help them make a decision about whether or not they should rent a property.”
Another great feature of the site is that users can connect with previous reviewers in an anonymous messaging platform. This allows prospective tenants to contact previous reviewers to ask follow up questions about a property they are interested in leasing.
The site also offers an unbiased objective toward all of the apartment reviews as they do not benefit from positive or negative feedback, unlike the majority of rental sites which offer only testimonials to promote their service.
“When a user posts a review it is our hope and the hope of our readers that the review is true and accurate,” said Cerny. “We also encourage landlords to respond to reviews if something posted is false or if a problem has been fixed.”
Searching for an apartment and making arrangements to move can be overwhelming enough on its own. Their mission at DoNotRent.com is to alleviate some of the stresses and pressures associated with an apartment search and to make your overall rental experience as smooth as possible with the most relevant resources.
“Since we launched the site nearly nine months ago, DoNotRent.com has seen significant growth in sign-ups and reviews and we currently have over 40,000 properties on the site,” said Mike Cerny, founding partner. “We strive to be an industry leader and continue to grow to be able to provide users with the most current and updated rental property listings and related resources.”
DoNotRent.com is the early stages of seeking investor funding to grow their operations.

Founded in 2010, DoNotRent.com was started by a small group of real estate professionals in Chicago who saw a need for a social networking rental review site covering all types of rental properties. Incorporating the various social media tools with their knowledge of the real estate industry, they created the platform for DoNotRent.com. As they continue to expand their goal remains the same to offer a website for tenants to search and post unbiased honest reviews, while also giving landlords and property managers a chance to respond to reviews and market their properties.
