LOUISVILLE, KY (PRWEB) June 23, 2006
The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®) and RentalHouses.com, Inc. announced today that RentalHouses.com has just become the organization’s newest affinity partner, further expanding the benefits IREM offers its more than 17,000 individual members and 525 corporate members worldwide. IREM is an international organization of real estate management professionals; RentalHouses.com is a national internet listing service advertising residential rental property.
The program with RentalHouses.com is one of several IREM has with specially selected vendors. It provides special financial incentives to IREM members posting properties available for rent on the RentalHouses.com website. In turn, RentalHouses.com will receive promotional exposure from lREM through its member communications channels.
“Many of our members in the United States manage and lease small structure residential properties,” stated IREM President Fred Prassas, CPM®. “We are pleased to have RentalHouses.com, one of the country’s largest online home rental listing services as an affinity partner, and trust that our relationship will be mutually beneficial.”
Robert Massey, Jr., CPM®, founder of RentalHouses.com, added, “We are delighted to work together with IREM members to successfully advertise and lease their vacancies. Single family homes, townhouses, condos, duplex, fourplex, and smaller apartment buildings account for over half the estimated 40 million rental dwellings in the United States. We enable real estate managers to exploit national online advertising to rent their vacant units faster, better, and cheaper.”
Online real estate listings have become an indispensable marketing tool of property management - even more so for single family homes and smaller multi-unit properties, Massey added. “The unique nature of each vacancy demands an advertising venue that can quickly post and remove a listing, unlike magazines or websites geared to large multi-unit community advertising.”
Founded by a real estate investor and property manager, RentalHouses.com, Inc., offers online real estate listings exclusively for single family homes and other smaller, multi-unit rental properties, such as townhouses, condos, duplex, fourplex, and apartment communities with fewer than 50 units. The website’s thousands of posted rental units, with full-color photos, extensive descriptions, and detailed Google™-derived mapping, enable searchers to easily research and find their next rental home anywhere in the United States.
