Leading property management network expands reach and services with affiliate program to source wider network of property managers nationwide.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
Halby, the largest property management network operating in the country, today announced it has established exclusive listing agreements with Condo.com and Rentlist.com to expand their online search services connecting property owners with property managers. These new alliances support the rapidly growing rental market and provide investors and property owners with extended access to one of the most comprehensive networks of property managers in the industry via Halby’s extensive online database.
As more homeowners find themselves in the rental market, the need for expert property managers has never been more pressing. In 2011 investors purchased 27 percent of the homes sold, potentially adding 1.23 million more single family homes to the country’s rental pool. Apartment market analyst Axiometrics, Inc. recently reported that the number of U.S. homeowners has decreased by two million since the housing crisis began in 2006, while the number of rental households grew by 4 million in that same period to a total of 40 million rental households.
“The housing market is still in crisis, and there is an acute need for quality rental housing which often means having a qualified property manager on board,” said Reggie Brown, CEO of Halby. “By aligning with Rentlist.com and Condo.com, we’re growing our robust network that connects property owners with professional property managers in the most efficient way, with the highest ROI.”
Sites such as Rentlist.com, Condo.com and its sister sites, Houses.com and Property.com, are joining Halby’s growing network of affiliates to support the growing rental property industry. Investors and property owners using this network of affiliate websites are now able to easily navigate and compare management companies located near their properties. Halby has the fastest growing, largest and most comprehensive network in the industry with over 2,000 managers nationwide, and offers attractive B2B incentives for its growing affiliate program.
