Moving can be a daunting and emotional process. It’s important not to lose sight of what really matters, which can sometimes be hard to do. While you may start looking for all the practical things such as access to transportation and proximity to work, you can sometimes find yourself overlooking the big things for the little ones. In the third video in our series, Dick Burke, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Apartments.com, helps renters separate the must-haves from the nice-to-haves. At Apartments.com, we know how many decisions—big and little—go into finding an apartment, which is why we strive to make it easier for renters to see both the big picture and little details during their apartment search, so they can make informed decisions around their move.
Apartments.com is excited to announce the launch of our Community Reviews Dashboard! To help our customers successfully manage reviews, we took the necessary steps to make reading, responding and promoting reviews as easy as possible by developing the Community Reviews Dashboard. The dashboard allows users to:
- Read all reviews received by the properties they are assigned to
- Respond to all community(ies) reviews
- Sort and search their community’s reviews by date, property name, review title, star rating or number of comments
- Easily promote and encourage reviews with a custom Apartments.com Community Reviews URL
After a few roundtable discussions with our advertisers, we all became curious about the motivators and behaviors of today’s renter. We reached out to our advertising agency, Slack & Company, and research partners at Erickson Research to conduct a study that would help us get the answers! Participants in the study included adults who sent a lead through Apartments.com in the prior 30 to 90 days and who currently rent or have recently investigated renting an apartment. We received 859 responses between December 10, 2012 and January 13, 2013.
Moving into an apartment for the first time is one of the first real big decisions many will make in their life. In the second video in our series, Dick Burke, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Apartments.com, recounts his experience moving out on his own for the first time. At Apartments.com, we understand the magnitude of first moves, from our Senior Vice President down to our renters, which is why we design our website around the things we know people need to support their moves.
