Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2011
Rent.com and the American Apartment Owners Association (AAOA) have joined forces to help income property owners with a variety of property management issues. A newly formed strategic alliance between the two companies will provide immediate relief to independent landlords and investors struggling in today’s difficult economy.
Under the new arrangement, Rent.com will be offering special pricing directly to AAOA members with 1-49 units. Concurrently, AAOA will be offering free membership and discounted tenant screening services to Rent.com clients. Providing cost saving benefits to landlords and managers of rental houses, duplexes and small apartment buildings is long overdue. Rent.com and AAOA are both proud to continue to offer special programs for this niche, but with this new partnership, their combined efforts will lessen the burden of management for the independent income property owner.
Shirley Quinn, a spokesperson for the American Apartment Owners Association, said, “We are very happy our members will be able to benefit from the vast reach that Rent.com provides. It helps create a level playing field for the independent owner that has competing vacancies with a large management company. Likewise, AAOA is excited to welcome Rent.com clients and provide them an array of discounted management services, rental forms, tenant screening and education.”
Rent.com is the nation’s #1 Internet listing site (ILS) in the rental housing industry enabling renters to find a residential rental property online using a free robust search tool. Rent.com has the most online traffic and the largest inventory of contracted property listings. As the only national ILS with a pay per lease business model, Rent.com allows property managers to cost-effectively fill their vacancies. Prospective renters can search the site’s detailed property listings, including contact information, pricing, photos, floor plans, and virtual tours. With the ability to directly contact property managers, finding the rental housing of your dreams is as easy as 1-2-3.
