Homes.com® Expands Rental Footprint into Canada
Partnership formed between Homes.com Rentals and Landlord Web Solutions to syndicate RentSync listings on Homes.com Rentals
NORFOLK, Va. (September 25, 2013) – Homes.com®, a leading online real estate destination and sister site of ForRent.com®, is expanding its rental channel into Canada exclusively through RentSync from Landlord Web Solutions (LWS). LWS is a website design and online marketing company that caters to the Canadian rental industry. Beginning in early October, RentSync listings will be displayed on Homes.com Rentals, giving consumers the opportunity to search for rental listings from numerous Canadian property management companies.
“We are thrilled to partner with a premiere Internet listing provider that is a leader in the North American marketplace,” said Jason Leonard, co-founder of Landlord Web Solutions. “Homes.com’s vision and understanding of the rental marketplace will help us enhance our serviceability to our wide range of diverse customers. They are an innovative Internet listing service with a strong and loyal customer base. We’re excited about this partnership.”
Canadian property managers using RentSync will gain increased visibility and greater distribution for their rental listings on Homes.com and its full line of mobile products. In the coming months, distribution of RentSync listings will expand to Homes.com’s sister site, ForRent.com, further increasing visibility of Canadian rental listings.
“Homes.com is proud to partner with Landlord Web Solutions to syndicate RentSync listings to Homes.com Rentals in Canada. We are expanding our scope of listing content within the multifamily real estate market across the border,” said Brock MacLean, executive vice president of Homes.com. “This new partnership gives Canadian property managers increased exposure for their rental listings, and allows Canadian consumers to easily search for their next house, apartment, condo or townhome on Homes.com.”
The Homes.com website recently released a cutting-edge parallax design and offers an intuitive map search for a user-friendly experience. Additionally, a “Commute Time” calculator using Bing’s map search is available for all listings – giving estimated commute times at the time of search along with driving instructions. Properties on Homes.com are also viewable across the mobile website as well as on the multiple apps created for iOS and Android devices, perfect for conducting on-the-go home searches.
Current RentSync customers will receive free syndication to Homes.com until March 2014 as part of a special offer from Landlord Web Solutions.
