With the explosion of video on both desktop and mobile devices, adding apartment community videos to rental listings on Homes.com was the natural next step in helping consumers connect with their new apartment home.
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
With more than 7,000 videos going live in early June, Homes.com recently enhanced its rental listings by adding apartment community videos to its lineup of resources for consumers. This addition to listings sourced from Homes.com’s sister brand and leading multi-family website, ForRent.com, gives renters more tools to help select their next home with ease. Within the short time these videos have been available, engagement from consumers searching for rentals has already increased dramatically, with 1 in every 7 apartment seekers on Homes.com watching an apartment community video.
“As a leader in the real estate listing industry, Homes.com is continuously focused on introducing engaging tools and resources that make home and rental searches easier for consumers,” said Brock MacLean, executive vice president of Homes.com. “With the explosion of video on both desktop and mobile devices, adding apartment community videos to rental listings on Homes.com was the natural next step in helping consumers connect with their new apartment home.”
From showcasing amenities and floor plans to sharing information about the local area and its activities, the apartment community videos bring rental communities to life. The videos highlight the best features of each community, giving potential renters a glimpse into what makes each community unique. Having a visual tool like this makes the rental search process more appealing and aids in the decision-making process.
In addition to featuring these apartment community videos on Homes.com rental listings, ForRent.com recently introduced a YouTube Apartment Search App to help consumers explore rental listings from within the ForRent.com branded YouTube channel. This new tool allows apartment shoppers to tour apartments within the largest video sharing site, providing an easy-to-use resource for finding their next apartment.
