Residents have always been curious to see their actual apartment before renting. 94% of renters depend on unit-level details to help make their leasing decisions. Now with technology, this is coming to life through building maps, videos of the exact apartment, virtual tours, photos, and amenities.
Apartments.com is also promoting the “Listing of the Future” allowing communities to be able to promote and highlight the specifics of each unit.
30 Lines is developing technology to aid your property website through our RentPress website plugin.
