Today Realync, the multifamily video engagement solution, announced its partnership with Apartments.com, a CoStar Group company. Realync and Apartments.com now integrate to make it easy for multifamily teams to add unit- or property-level videos from Realync to their Apartments.com listings.
Earlier this year, Apartments.com announced its new “Listing of the Future” at Apartmentalize. The “Listing of the Future” was created in direct response to consumer demands. In a survey of 45,000 renters, Apartments.com found that 94% of renters want unit-specific floorplans and availability. In contrast, 82% say the location of a unit within a building or community matters, and 63% are interested in the unit’s view. The “Listing of the Future” accommodates these requests — you may see virtual tours, video tours, 3D tours, and much more of individual units.
“This is exactly why Realync was created — for renters to be able to view the exact unit that they might lease in an authentic, transparent way. There has been a clear shift to video over the years, and the recent focus on unit-level search and media is helping meet those consumer demands,” said Matt Weirich, Co-founder and CEO at Realync. “Apartments.com is a market leader and is leading the charge in taking apartment search and touring to the next level. We couldn’t be more thrilled about this partnership to help our mutual clients make the most of their “Listing of the Future” by pushing authentic unit-level video content into their search experience.”
Realync makes connecting with renters to tour a community through video easier than ever. On-site teams can record and share pre-recorded videos or host live video tours from any device. This allows them to provide convenient, personalized video experiences for every prospect.
“Renters have viewed over 7 million Apartments.com client videos so far this year, and they’ve made it very clear that seeing unit-level videos is an important part of their research,” said Stuart Richens, Vice President of Product at Apartments.com. “Realync is at the forefront of making this renter desire a reality, and we’re excited to partner with them to support our renters and mutual multifamily clients.”
Starting this week at the 2022 OPTECH Conference & Expo, Realync is running a promotional offer for Apartments.com Diamond and Diamond Plus clients.
When Apartments.com Diamond and Diamond Plus clients sign up with Realync for the first time, they will receive five free unit-level videos created by Realync. Request more information here. This offer expires on December 31st, 2022.
