For Rent Media Solutions™ (FRMS), a leading multifamily marketing and advertising resource and a division of Dominion Enterprises, reported a successful third quarter of 2013 with noteworthy accomplishments that provide additional benefits to customers.

Superior Mobile

With an upward shift in consumer mobile consumption, ForRent.com’s mobile website saw a dramatic increase in monthly mobile unique visitor traffic for the quarter. According to comScore, ForRent.com’s mobile site was ranked number one against competitors in July with nearly 1.53 million unique visitors - a 175% increase year over year. Traffic to the site remains high and continues to increase in unique visitors each month.

Enhanced Reach

Homes.com, FRMS’ sister company, launched a national television advertising campaign in August 2013 that will reach over 260 million consumers across targeted home networks. With the exclusive distribution of ForRent.com listings on Homes.com Rentals, FRMS customers are receiving the benefit of dramatically increased exposure to their community’s listings as a result of this exciting campaign.

A recent partnership between Homes.com Rentals and Canada-based Landlord Web Solutions (LWS) is enhancing the apartment search process for Canadian renters. LWS’ RentSync listings have begun appearing on Homes.com Rentals, letting consumers search for rentals from Canadian property management companies, and expanding Homes.com’s rental footprint internationally.

Award Recognition

ForRent.com was recognized once again in the 9th Annual Multi-Housing News (MHN) Technology Choice Awards, winning in the Internet Listing Service (ILS) and Mobile App categories. ForRent.com was the only ILS to be recognized in the Mobile App category for 2013, and has been an award winner in multiple years since the inception of the MHN Tech Choice Awards.

Bilingual Site Enhancements

The recent launch of ForRent.com en Español has brought a significant increase in traffic to the site, providing an additional search option to reach the Hispanic demographic. The site launch has not only provided new apartment search resources for Spanish-speaking consumers, but also offers reporting tools and analytical information property managers can use for tracking property leads and engagement.

Educational White Paper

ForRentUniversity.com, a targeted marketing solution and unique internet listing service designed for the collegiate demographic, published Connect & Discover: Today’s Digital Savvy Student Renter in July. Filled with statistics from a nationwide student renter survey, this white paper covers apartment search trends, engagement tactics, and factors that influence students’ rental decisions.
