RISMEDIA, July 9, 2007—Apartments.com, an apartment rental listing service, announced it has been selected as the featured apartment listing provider on Yahoo! Real Estate. Through this relationship, Yahoo! Real Estate users can search for apartments on the Apartments.com database of more than three million apartment listings, one of the largest national databases of rental units available online.
“We are excited about the opportunity to bring together two leading destinations in online real estate, and offer a valuable service to both renters and property managers looking to fill vacancies,” said Kevin Doyle, senior vice president and general manager of Apartments.com. “By enabling Yahoo! Real Estate’s users to access our detailed and visual listings data, Apartments.com can build on our goal to reach renters across the country. In doing so, we will provide even more highly qualified leads to our advertisers, thus reducing the cost for an apartment community to fill a vacancy.”
Visitors to Yahoo! Real Estate can search Apartments.com listings by geographic location on either a map or in list results, and narrow down search results based on price range, number of bedrooms and number of bathrooms. No registration is required to view complete details of Apartments.com rental listings, including photos, virtual tours, community descriptions, driving directions and ‘check availability’ features.
Apartments.com offers a variety of contact methods including toll-free telephone number and e-mail to learn more information about a rental.
