“AG Sites empowers apartment communities of all sizes to significantly strengthen their integrated marketing efforts with a community website that is simple and easy to implement,” says Scott Asher, vice president of marketing and operations for RentPath, Apartment Guide’s parent company. “Because we are committed to innovation, we continue to explore ways to make AG Sites even better for our clients through the integration of new functionality that meets the growing demand for online services from apartment communities.”
Introduced in April, AG Sites offers a complete website solution, including a custom domain name and mobile optimization, free of charge to clients as part of their listing packages. In September, Apartment Guide introduced numerous enhancements, including the ability for apartment communities to link to their online application systems and resident portals that enable online rent payment.
“Allowing prospective renters to apply online greatly improves the quality of leads and significantly increases the amount of information communities receive in advance of the tour or move-in,” Asher says. “This enables on-site apartment associates to operate more efficiently and secure leases and move-ins faster. It’s just another way AG Sites makes introducing a community website easier and more effective than any other digital marketing solutions provider in the industry.”
Other digital marketing solutions providers charge upfront set-up fees and recurring monthly payments for website solutions. While AG Sites is free to clients who list on Apartment Guide, the solution provides a robust, professionally designed website.
“I love the new mobile-optimized website Apartment Guidehas created for us through AG Sites,” says Deana Turner, vice president of York, Pa.-based Statewide Management, which has four communities on AG Sites. “It flows together perfectly and looks so clean and inviting, exactly what future residents are looking for in their apartment search. Apartment Guide is our biggest traffic source at every one of our communities.”
