Massachusetts–based Rental Beast, Inc. announced the re-launch of RentalBeast.com. The website is an online platform which enables renters to easily research, share and engage their social network contacts in their apartment hunting process.
RentalBeast.com combines its powerful database, advanced search capabilities, access to over 300,000 apartments within Boston and the surrounding areas with local rental experts for a hassle-free renting experience.
Rental Beast starts with the most comprehensive listings, including property pictures and neighborhood details.
Their local rental experts offer personalised service throughout the region showing renters all of their selected listings eliminating the need to use multiple brokers for multiple listings. When the renter finds their new home, Rental Beast helps with the rest of the moving process including furniture, utilities etc. Rental Beast’s mission is to enhance the apartment rental experience, before, during and after the move-in.
“RentalBeast.com engages users early in the rental process by offering the largest apartment rental inventory in MA with over 300,000 validated properties in Boston and the surrounding communities. Updating our listings hourly means renters have the most up-to-date rental inventory from which to choose. This is a unique and powerful tool that is only available on the RentalBeast.com platform,” Ishay Grinberg, President, Rental Beast, Inc. “It is our superior data collection and sharing capabilities that will make RentalBeast.com the leading renter’s resource in the Boston area and other major cities in the U.S.”
RentalBeast.com has Neighborhood and Community pages targeted at college students/campus communities and workers/corporate communities looking for relocation information and services. Each of the Neighborhood and Community pages offer local expertise from area renters who live in the neighborhood, city, or state and provide important demographic and geographic information such as average rents, vacancy rates, school ratings, median household income, and crime rates. RentalBeast.com also shares information on area parks and recreation, restaurants, and merchants using data compiled from resources such as Yelp and Zagat. Users can access and search this information via short videos and Twitter feeds using neighborhood hash-tags (i.e. #BackBay, #HarvardSquare).
Rental Beast will be uploading a site upgrade in the next few weeks that will include easy-to-use, integrated sharing tools for all rental parties (roommates, parents, and spouses). All can be part of the property search and decision process. Integration with social networks allows RentalBeast.com users to see where “friends” live via map icons, access venue reviews of places friends have eaten, shopped, and played. After a user has relocated to a new neighborhood, city, or state RentalBeast.com will help match renters with friends who share common likes and interests.
Later this year Rental Beast will release a state of the art comprehensive moving/relocation services center which will include utility and service providers, DMV, and insurance agents to give renters one central place for taking care of all their moving needs.
