Cedar Grove, NJ (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
MetroFlats.com launched earlier this month to give vacationers a new way to stay in style and comfort. By allowing “hosts” (property managers and owners) to list their properties free of charge, MetroFlats.com hopes to gain traction in critical high-visibility markets like New York, Miami and Orlando. “Guests” (vacationers) can search through listings and find their perfect hotel-alternative.
All transactions are kept on the secure platform so that guests can feel confident that their private financial information is handled with care and not shared with their host. By partnering with sister company, MetroFlatsNYC.com, MetroFlats.com has created a strong presence in the New York City market immediately upon launch.
The founders of MetroFlats.com are no strangers to the start-up environment, Co-founder Avisha Khubani, Chief Executive Officer has ample “host experience” with her time spent with MetroFlatsNYC, a New York City property management company. Co-founder Shamoon Siddiqui, VP of Product Development and Marketing, has extensive entrepreneurial experience, including launching America's Premier Book Rental Service, BookSwim.com in 2006, which he sold in 2008.
“Hotels are small, and I mean the actual rooms themselves are tiny. Why pay more for a tiny room when you can get an entire house for less?” said Siddiqui. “Our platform allows guests and hosts to find each other with ease by taking out the constant back-and-forth that is common when trying to find a great place to stay.”
MetroFlats ensures safe online renting along with safe online posting for hosts. Searching for a rental is made easy with the user-friendly search which allows the guest to search by location and check-in and check-out dates. “A vacation is all about feeling comfortable with where you are staying and MetroFlats.com provides detailed descriptions and pictures for every rental listed on the site. Listing pages are also detail-rich and every single listing requires at least 1 photo and description,” explains Khubani.
The company received initial seed capital from its sister company, MetroFlatsNYC and is actively raising more capital to continue to fund growth.
MetroFlats.com is vacation rental marketplace that brings together hosts and guests to connect safely. Guests can choose from a wide variety of different styles of apartments to fit their vacation needs.
