rentersPlus.com is dedicated to bringing the very best search experience to
apartment seekers. No one enjoys looking for an apartment: it's hard and it takes
time. We harness the resources of the Internet to save you time, and help you find that
perfect fit. Our mantra is Laser Accuracy.
Most apartment sites, and even the so-called apartment magazines, don't have
apartment listings: they have building listings. Our database is engineered to model
each individual apartment. So if you're looking for a 2-bedroom with a microwave oven,
we'll only list 2-bedroom apartments with microwaves. And when you call
the leasing manager for that building, you'll know that apartment is available.
We don't maintain our database: the landlords do. After all, who better knows what
apartments are available and when? We've made it super easy for them to log in and list or
delist their apartments. In fact, they have complete access to every facet of their property:
from the type of building, to the number of floors and apartments, to descriptions of the property,
apartment, or the many pictures. They control it all.
So our listings are completely up-to-the-minute. As soon as a landlord lists an apartment, before
he even logs out, that apartment is now available for searches. And conversely, when an
apartment is delisted, it no longer appears in search results, so you don't waste time calling.
Powerful, Flexible Search Tools
A great database design is only half the story. We also give you terrific search tools to
mine that data. We like to call it fine-grained searching. In addition to specifying where you
want your apartment, and how much you want to pay, you can select the number of bedrooms and
bathrooms, above or below given floors, type of building, and most importantly, the
date required. Plus, we have comprehensive lists of amenities for properties and apartments.
These not only allow you to specify which amenities you're interested in, but also which ones you
definitely don't want.
After you've entered your criteria and pressed the Search button, we give you all the listings
which match. But what if there are too many? Or too few? No problem. Just click the
Refine Search link, and you're back in the Criteria Review page, which allows you to modify
any aspect of your search criteria. Feel free to make it more inclusive or more restrictive, and
search again. It's that simple.
And once you've tweaked your criteria just so; once you have just the right number of
search results, and boy, do those apartments look good! What then? Will you have to
re-enter all those criteria again next time? No way! We're all about saving you time,
remember? You can save your criteria sets. That's right: if you have more than one,
you can save each one individually.
Beyond the Search
Your criteria sets have one other feature you might find useful: you can set each one to
receive daily e-mails alerting you of new listings which match them. So you'll never miss
a listing which fits your criteria.
While reviewing your search results and e-mail alerts, if you find an apartment you
think is right for you, you can add it to your hotlist with a single click. You can
set a status for each hotlisted apartment of Called, Spoke or Visited. You can also
put in your own notes. And finally, you can order the apartments to suit your preference.
Is That All?
Well, for the moment, yes. We have plans for many more features, so keep checking in every
so often. Or better yet, we'll be sending a newsletter to registered members every few weeks,
which will announce new features as they come online.
In the meantime, if you have any ideas for features you think would make your apartment
search easier, faster or in any way better, please let us know.
Until then, thanks for your support, and happy hunting!
