Advanced mobile & desktop advertising for Homes.com Rentals connects property managers with potential renters
Norfolk, Virginia (June 17, 2014) – ForRent.com® and Homes.com® recently revealed the results of their “Rental Profile Insights Survey: A Look at Today’s Renter”, showing the demand for traditional apartments outweighs the desire for residential rental properties. The survey showcases that it is more important than ever for multifamily professionals to utilize advertising tools to reach the growing number of renters across the country. Targeting consumers searching for apartments, Homes.com has launched Mobile Local & City Banner Ads, providing an innovative advertising solution for the multifamily industry.
The Homes.com Rentals Mobile Local & City Banner Ads, exclusive to ForRent.com customers, are dynamic advertising solutions compatible with both iOS and Android devices. The tools provide property managers the ability to consistently and prominently place advertising to highlight their rental communities to millions of monthly real estate rental shoppers visiting the Homes.com Rentals channel. Since launching earlier this year, these ads have increased awareness and leads for participating property managers with customers in Nevada, Louisiana, New Jersey, Georgia and North and South Carolina, to name a few.
With over 30+ years in the multifamily industry and 20+ years in the real estate space, ForRent.com and Homes.com can deliver a level of experience multifamily or real estate professionals can trust. “With the local housing market gaining momentum, I was looking for a way to keep our apartment community in the spotlight,” said Kory Leighty, NALP, property manager, Blankenbaker Crossings Apartments (Louisville, Kentucky). “The solution to my needs was the Homes.com City Ad. This marketing approach allowed me to reach and be visible to a broader group of individuals seeking their next place to call home.”
“The evolution and success of the Mobile Local & City Banner Ads product is a testament to Homes.com and ForRent.com’s exclusive partnership, which is centered on continuously developing innovative solutions that better serve our customers by connecting them to more consumers,” said Brock MacLean, executive vice president of Homes.com. “As the first in the multifamily industry to develop and launch a rental advertising product of this caliber, clients have direct, real-time access to potential renters via desktop and mobile interfaces on Homes.com. We are thrilled to see so many property managers already benefiting with quality leads and increased awareness of their rental properties.”

High-impact ad positioning with top-anchored placement as user scrolls
Click-to-call functionality for real-time access
