RentSFNow and J.Wavro Associates Partner With Trulia to Deliver Rental …


SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jul 11, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –
Trulia, a leading online marketplace for homebuyers, sellers,
renters and real estate professionals, today announced both Rent SF
Now and J.Wavro Associates, will syndicate their San Francisco rental
listings to Trulia. Consumers will now have access to a distinctive
group of new properties making it easier for Trulia users to find the
right place to live. And with dedicated mobile apps for rentals,
Trulia is making it easier to find an apartment in San Francisco.

“Trulia is focused on delivering more rental listings to our users by
working directly with partners in the industry,” said Divya Bhat, Sr.
Product Manager, Trulia Rentals. “We aim to take the hassle out of
browsing listings by providing tools and apps that cater to the short
and often competitive timeline of searching for a rental. With
features like real-time alerts for new listings, a mobile map view
and local amenity data, we provide renters with critical context as
they browse and tour rentals.”

“Prospective renters are searching online for listings while they are
out-and-about,” said James Wavro of J.Wavro Associates. “Once we saw
the popular iPhone and Android apps from Trulia we realized how
beneficial it would be for our business to tap into mobile rental
searchers through the Trulia platform.”

“The rental market moves quickly, particularly in a place like San
Francisco, and renters are increasingly searching for apartment
listings from their mobile phones,” said David Chesnosky of
RentSFNow. “Trulia’s iPhone and Android apps enable us to get in
front of renters while they’re searching on-the-go.”

Finding an apartment to rent can be challenging and in San Francisco
a variety of factors, including a strong job market and low
inventory, have been forcing prices up. The latest Trulia Rent
Monitor showed rents are up 14.7% year-over-year, during the month of
June.

In this environment, renters can benefit from tools Trulia provides
to help them find what they are looking for quickly and efficiently.
Trulia’s dedicated rentals apps for iPhone and Android are optimized
for the tight time frame renters operate on when searching for their
next place to call home. The app provides a rich interface allowing
prospective renters to browse by zip code or neighborhood for current
rentals, but also highlights new listings almost immediately, via
push notifications and color-coded markers which note newer
properties.

The Trulia Rentals App is available for free from the App Store on
iPhone and iPod touch, online and in the Play store from Android.
