Benefits for Landlords - a free resource. is free marketplace for renting apartments.

GridGuide is a resource for property managers and perspective tenants.  Its main function is to provide a free advertising exchange.  GridGuide is:

  • Completely free to use.
  • Enter your apartments once and they stay in your account permanently and can be activated and deactivated anytime 24/7.
  • Enter as many apartments as you want.
  • Our innovative "grid" design homepage allows you to view in a quick snapshot of all available apartments. Also view the statistics showing the low, average, and high rents in your area for each unit type (# of bedrooms).

Did you know 85% of all renters start their search online?  Okay, I made that up, but it might be true.

  • Single user web sites for rental property don't have the volume of listings, and hence the web traffic to be very effective.
  • The problem with many other larger sites is that they either:
    • charge money and have not realized critical mass (hence less traffic)
    • are poorly organized and inefficient (painful and inefficient to use.
    • or require a third party to enter information which can be very inefficient, slow, and inaccurate!

 I have been advertising on Craigslist for a while, and have been happy with the exposure on Craigslist, but there are deficiencies with Craigslist we are addressing with GridGuide. Here is how I have addressed these issues:

Provides no way to sort by the date apartments are available. So people have to view tons of listing to find what they are looking for.
In the Grid homepage all listings are automatically organized by the number of bedrooms and the date available! Check it out!
Listings are quickly obsolete as each new listing is added, your listing gets buried. 
All listing are highlighted until the available date passes!
I don’t like having to re-list once it expires, and upload pictures again. 
List it once, upload pictures (and VIDEO!!) we keep everything in your account permanently!
Craigslist is a jack of all trades is a master of apartment rentals

Not convinced yet?  You can also generate the code with the click of a button for quick cut and past HTML to copy your GridGuide listings to Craigslist for additional exposure!

If you have any questions don't hesitate to call me.
