Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2008
A new independent wiki for the real estate industry, Real Estate Wiki, this week added 70 FAQs helping renters with handy information about the process of leasing a home instead of buying. Real Estate Wiki, which was officially launched last week, is an independent wiki and is not affiliated with the Wikipedia Foundation.
Real Estate Wiki is the culmination of a group of dedicated real estate professionals that decided to work together to centralize real estate related information, FAQ's, bios, industry trends, summaries of industry providers, brokers and agents in one online resource for everyone to use.
According to a spokesperson for Real Estate Wiki, this new addition of leasing information is an example of the kind of industry focus a specialized wiki can provide. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) added include aspects such as:
- How to Find Rental Properties
- Obligations of a Tenant
- Responsibilities of the Landlord
- Lease Agreements
- Trust Accounts
- Leasehold Improvements
- Nuisances and Unlawful Activities
- When Leases can be Terminated
- And many, many more valuable questions.
According to ComScore and Hitwise two real estate websites, Apartments.com and Rent.com, both rank in their January 2008 report as top 10 real estate websites based on traffic. This shows how important this sector of the real estate industry is, especially during a depressed real estate market.
Real Estate Wiki is looking for more volunteers that have knowledge of the real estate business and that would like to contribute towards building Real Estate Wiki into the leading real estate encyclopedia.
