NORFOLK, VA – May 2, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — For Rent Media Solutions™, a leading resource for apartment searches nationwide and operator of ForRent.com®, a division of Dominion Enterprises, today announced an exclusive partnership with VaultWare, an online marketing and leasing solution provider for the multifamily housing industry. The integration between For Rent Media Solutions and VaultWare’s free website solution, VaultWare Places, will provide most existing For Rent customers with a free of charge, self-service website beginning May 2, 2011. The launch markets to receive their free website will be Columbus, Kansas City, San Diego and San Francisco.
In these tough economic times, this new partnership provides a free service to those properties that are currently paying for a website, as well as aid those that do not have a site. VaultWare Places will automatically update the content and pricing information from a ForRent.com listing to the new customer site. For Rent Media Solutions President, Terry Slattery, said: “We understand that professionals in the multifamily housing industry are stretching their budgets and resources to the limit. This product automatically updates changes our customers make on ForRent.com to their VaultWare Places website, saving them time and money. This free website is yet another form of effective online presence making it easier for our customer’s property to be seen by prospective renters.”
Creating a VaultWare Places website will be simple for For Rent customers. For Rent customers will be introduced to VaultWare Places through their account executives, who will direct them to the VaultWare Places console for ForRent.com customers. Interested customers can opt-in by logging in with credentials provided by the account executive, and verifying some basic account information. The For Rent template is then automatically populated with all of the information from the coinciding ForRent.com listing.
“This is a great opportunity for small owners and fee managers that are budget constrained to instantly create a powerful online presence. There will no longer be any excuses for not having a property website!” said Mike Mueller, CEO of VaultWare. “With just a few clicks a website can be up and running thanks to the integration with ForRent.com. With a few more clicks you can even have a unique and marketable web address powered by GoDaddy!”
