disaster that was waiting to happen

Home foreclosures and Wall Street chaos haven't put a dent in the Houston, Austin and Dallas Apartment Industries. According to ALN Apartment Data, the leading aggregator of Texas multi-family data, apartment occupancy rates are above 90% across the state and the average quoted rental rate for Dallas apartments increased 4% over the past year to $801 per month. "The Dallas apartment industry has provided consumers an affordable housing alternative" says Wayne Williams, Owner of ALN. "Considering the area's great job growth and affordable housing options...and considering the amount of consumers coming out of houses right now...UMoveFree is in an incredible position to prosper during otherwise hard times" says Williams.

Not only does UMoveFree help renters find apartments at no cost, but they actually provide a free move to everyone that uses their service. Renters that choose to move themselves are offered up to a $200 rebate instead. Renters can actually move for free and also receive professional assistance from one of UMoveFree's experienced apartment locating agents. How can renters move for free? UMoveFree receives a referral commission from the properties where their customers lease, and they use part of that commission to help their customers move for free; a value proposition that has made UMoveFree a household name among Dallas apartment renters and across the state.

With traditional real estate companies going under daily, UMoveFree's strategy to focus on Texas apartment renters now seems like a stroke of brilliance, but helping renters find apartments isn't a new idea for UMoveFree. "Our firm has catered to apartment renters since we founded the company in 2002…Other real estate firms thought we were crazy when we refused to jump on the residential home sales band wagon" says Nick Barber, Owner/President of UMoveFree. Barber describes the real estate frenzy that occurred over the past several years as a "disaster that was waiting to happen". "There were times when we couldn't get clients approved for an apartment but they could still get approved for a $200,000 home loan…I knew then our company was on the safe side of real estate" says Barber. An entrepreneurial success story, Barber and business partner Mark Finney started UMoveFree while in college
