When it comes to searching for their next apartment, over 75 percent of consumers surveyed say they base their rental decisions on ratings and reviews (Next Generation of Renters). In fact, properties with reviews on ForRent.com® receive 20 percent more leads on average than those without. Now, RentAdvisor reviews will be featured on ForRent.com as a benefit for mutual clients.
“For Rent Media Solutions™ entered the ratings and reviews segment over nine months ago,” explained Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions. “Striking a balance between content clients want in their ForRent.com listing and what prospective renters would like to see during their search has been our main priority.”
Currently, ForRent.com reposts renter reviews from multiple sources, allowing prospective renters to get an idea of what living in a community may be like. Combined with community photos, property details and location information on ForRent.com, RentAdvisor reviews will add a complete picture for interested renters.
“Because RentAdvisor works directly with property management companies, we generate a high volume of positive reviews,” said Robert Turnbull, president and co-founder of RentAdvisor. “”While the top three ratings sites combined only generate eight reviews a year per property, RentAdvisor generates twice that in just the first 90 days – 85 percent of which are 3-star and higher. Additionally, ForRent.com is the first to partner with RentAdvisor, displaying reviews from more sources than any other ILS.”
RentAdvisor reviews will begin appearing on ForRent.com in December for mutual clients that wish to have their reviews featured on the site, with links back to RentAdvisor.
