In June of this year Zillow announced that it had completed the acquisition of San Francisco-based RentJuice. Now RentJuice is officially Zillow Rentals, a free marketplace and suite of tools for rental professionals.
Zillow Rentals provides property managers, rental agents and landlords with top-of-the-line productivity tools and resources to help them manage and market their listings, for free.
All of RentJuice’s technology solutions and services for rental professionals, including its mobile apps, are available under the Zillow Rentals brand.
Included in the Zillow Rentals free suite of tools and resources:
- Broad listings distribution. Rental listings are published to the Zillow Rental Network, one of the largest rental networks on the Web, comprised of the millions of rental shoppers on Zillow.com and Yahoo!® Homes. Listings also can be made accessible and searchable through free widgets for rental professionals’ Facebook® pages and websites.
- Customer relationship management platform for managing listings, generating leads and building tenant relationships. The platform is available on the Web and through the Zillow Rental Pro apps on iOS and Android™.
- Online rental applications and transaction management tools that make it possible to complete a rental application from a browser or mobile device during a property tour.
“Zillow has been aggressively expanding into software tools for real estate professionals in order to become more critical to their workflow and productivity,” said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow CEO. “The RentJuice acquisition four months ago laid the foundation for this expansion in rentals, and today’s announcement brings us one step closer toward our vision of rewiring the rental industry.”
