Norfolk, Va. (PRWEB) June 19, 2015
Based in San Francisco, RentLingo, an internet listing site, offers reviews from residents and experts. RentLingo hires local experts, typically people who have spent time in the property management industry and therefore know the business, to visit, inspect and rate local apartment communities. User reviews are also available on the site. RentLingo has partnered with ForRent.com because of the high volume of traffic and quality user experience the apartment search destination provides. To date, RentLingo has reviewed approximately 3,500 properties.
“RentLingo is thrilled to have partnered with ForRent.com as they mutually align with our company’s goal of connecting consumers with the apartments best suited for them,” said Dan Laufer, co-founder and chief executive officer at RentLingo. “In 2011, we set out on a mission to improve the apartment rental search. By collaborating with ForRent.com, we will be able to further that agenda by providing more reviews for apartment hunters and making their housing decisions less stressful.”
Social media is a growing phenomenon and is not going to lose steam anytime soon. Consumers are constantly turning to online reviews and social platforms for suggestions on everything from vacations, pets and apartments to recipes, beauty products and gifts. Satisfacts Research shows that 74.4% of residents trust referrals from friends and co-workers while 67.7% trust online reviews. Additionally, communities with In-Ad reviews on ForRent.com command 20% more leads than those without.
To align with the indisputable fact that consumers are turning to online reviews for suggestions and advice, ForRent.com’s social product, FRSocial, integrates reputation management to help customers increase sales and retention. This part of the program provides automated reputation management alerts from major review sites, directories and social channels. Customers save time monitoring ratings and reviews. Additionally, FRSocial provides four content libraries, the ability to post to multiple social networks, analytics, and also allows customers to instantly engage with residents.
