Rentlodex® is quickly becoming the most used website for searching short-term rental & multi-family investment properties. Taking advantage of our affordable partnership program enables you to reach more of these buyers while also establishing you as the investment property expert in your market.
The Rentlodex® Partnership Program is an advertising and lead generation opportunity that helps real estate agents reach more investment property home buyers using our SEO and digital marketing expertise. After becoming a partner, your branding and your contact information will be assigned to every optimized landing page on Rentlodex.com that targets investors in your local market, and all incoming leads generated from our website development and SEO efforts are assigned directly to you.
From being able to see what properties leads are viewing to being notified via email as soon as a lead registers on the website, our partners are equipped with all the basic tools needed to maximize their investment.
Every market is going to be different. As a very young website, we’re still working to build website authority and improve search engine visibility wherever we can for a variety of investment property categories; so we expect traffic and lead volume to only get stronger over time. However, the first 3 test markets we launched averaged 11 new leads over the first 4 weeks of being live and we’re already seeing an uptick since then. But even if your market only maintains that same average over the course of a full year, you’ll still generate well over 100 leads, which by any conversion metric out there should translate to at least 1 transaction. And at only $99/month ($1,188 total annual investment), 1 transaction should provide a return of at least 3x that investment in nearly every market based on current home values and commission rates.
That’s okay! In fact, a number of Rentlodex® subscribers are also Real Estate Web Creation SEO clients who invest heavily in their own websites as well. Given its affordability and potential for an incredible ROI, most view Rentlodex® as a secondary, cost-effective lead source that also provides extra visibility in their market.
No! Although your Rentlodex® account will include access to a CRM that leads are funneled into, many of our customers transition whatever leads they receive into the CRM they’re already using and manage them from there. However, our system does include a suite of tools that fully allow you to manage your leads internally, including the ability to see what properties leads are viewing and/or saving, the ability to add notes & tags to each lead, the ability to send messages and auto-responders to each lead, and the ability to set leads up on a saved search subscription.
No! In fact, this is one of the best parts about being a Rentlodex® subscriber! Whatever leads are generated from your local MLS feed are yours and only yours! In other words, you’ll have full ownership of your market for as long as your subscription is active.
Although our primary focus is the short-term rental investment market, we’re also targeting other investment categories as well in order to help maximize lead generation and your overall ROI. Multi-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, and fixer-uppers are some other search categories we’re going after just to name a few, and we’re even targeting other vacation property categories that are commonly used as short-term rentals like cabins, lake cottages, and beachfront properties as well.
Much like any other form of farming or niche marketing in real estate, we believe Rentlodex® should be used to compliment your overall marketing strategy, which in most markets, means investing in additional lead generation tactics. While Rentlodex® does present the opportunity to see a strong ROI, it’s also not something that should be viewed as a primary lead source for most real estate businesses.
As mentioned, we’re a very young website so we might not be present or visible in your market yet. But this shouldn’t stop you from becoming a subscriber if you’re looking to work with more investor clients. And if we’re not in your market yet, we’ll work to build out an entire section dedicated to investment properties in your area before your billing period begins, ensuring you get the most out of your annual subscription!
Absolutely! And for every market you reserve beyond your primary market, you’ll only pay $79/month for each additional IDX feed, potentially saving you hundreds annually. So if you’re in a state or location that has multiple MLS associations throughout the area your business or brokerage services, or if you already have a presence in more than one market or state, this is something you’ll definitely want to take advantage of.
We’ve only just recently started adding markets and our growth rate is fast and furious. If you’re interested in reaching more investment buyers and subscribing to Rentlodex®, contact us ASAP! Open markets we are currently looking to fill are listed below.
Our goal is for Rentlodex to provide Realtors with the absolute best value of all their various marketing expenses and we think our affordable pricing structure reflects exactly that. Sign-up today before your market is reserved!
