Yardi Launches RentCafe Blog


Renters gain nationwide links to events and lifestyle trends

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Sept. 28, 2011 – Yardi announced today the launch of RentCafe Blog, its latest online resource for renters across the United States.

The blog is an extension of Yardi’s RentCafe, one of the fastest growing online apartment listing services. Featuring an iPhone app and mobile site, RentCafe delivers hassle-free apartment search results with virtual property tours, neighborhood Walk Scores, online rental applications, and more.

RentCafe Blog builds upon RentCafe’s convenience and value by offering renter solutions beyond the apartment search and leasing processes. It is an all-encompassing tool that highlights news and events in major metropolitan areas and delivers continually evolving, often funny, and always useful content related to rental living.

“RentCafe is not just about finding your next apartment or rental. We’re committed to providing a valuable service for renters that includes becoming a dynamic resource for city information, lifestyle trends, the economy, roommate issues, and other topics that impact them,” said John Pendergast, senior vice president and product manager for RentCafe.

Blog entry categories are Roommates, Food, Money, Design Ideas, Entertainment, and Green Living. Recently covered topics include the best apps for splitting bills with roommates and Chicago’s most anticipated restaurant debuts this fall. Bloggers can share their thoughts and experiences by posting comments, and article highlights are always available via Facebook and Twitter — a convenient feature for users on the go.

To learn more about what’s going on in your city or to share what we’ve missed, visit RentCafe Blog. We look forward to hearing from you!
