BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rental Beast, a rental real estate listing service, announced today its expansion to the Greater Philadelphia and Chicago areas. The company also announced a partnership with leading Philadelphia real estate brokerage Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach REALTORS®.
Rental Beast is the online platform that connects landlords and property managers with highly qualified tenants through a network of hyper-local real estate experts. The service, founded in 2009 by CEO Ishay Grinberg, is modeled after multiple listing services (MLS) favored on the real estate purchase market.
“We are proud to bring Rental Beast’s proven approach to the thousands of landlords and consumers in Philadelphia and Chicago looking for a simpler way to find their next home,” said Grinberg. “In working with our esteemed partners at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach and other brokerages around the country, we are helping landlords fill vacancies and tenants find homes.”
A holistic experience – from first "click" to signed lease – Rental Beast’s free, easy-to-use platform provides access to more than 1 million listings across the Greater Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago areas. Offering additional tools and bespoke data, Rental Beast arms landlords and property managers with the insights they need to succeed in today’s competitive rental market. Rental Beast’s inventory refresh ensures all listings on the consumer-facing site are up-to-date, providing prospective tenants a comprehensive look at what’s available in the neighborhood of their choice.
Widening the reach of a landlord’s listing, Rental Beast partners with leading real estate brokerages, such as Philadelphia’s Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, to increase the prospective tenant pool. By providing brokers priority access to Rental Beast’s robust database, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach gains exclusive access to in-bound prospective tenant requests originating on Rental Beast’s platform. Services are expected to be unveiled to brokers by March.
Philadelphia and Chicago have experienced steady growth in inventory and demand for rental apartments, fueled in part by an influx of millennial renters. Rental Beast’s services are now available for landlords, property managers and tenants in Chicago, Chicago’s suburbs, Philadelphia, Philadelphia’s suburbs, central Pennsylvania, northeast Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
“We are excited to give this advantage to our agents,” said Joan Docktor, President of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, REALTORS®. “Partnering with Rental Beast will provide our agents with a comprehensive database to better serve their clients, enabling them to meet their residential needs.”
Rental Beast continues its rapid nationwide expansion in 2015.
