ForRent.com and Homes.com partner to expand consumer housing options
ForRent.com is the exclusive provider of apartment listings for leading real estate Web site
NORFOLK, Va.-(June 15, 2009)-ForRent.com, anchor Web site for For Rent Media SolutionsTM, a leading apartment resource for searching apartments nationwide, and a division of Dominion Enterprises, will be the sole content provider of apartment rental properties on Homes.com. The exclusive partnership will provide additional exposure for property managers and offering multiple housing solutions for homeowners.
“During these economically challenging times, homeowners are seeking additional housing options,” said Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions. “This partnership with Homes.com, our sister company, provides us with a great opportunity to further extend the reach of our apartment listings to one of the leading real estate Web sites.

“In April, Homes.com attracted nearly 2.3 million unique visitors, according to comScore Media Metrix. Those visitors can now find apartment listings on Homes.com by clicking on the Rentals tab, typing in their desired location, and selecting “Apartment Rentals.” Users can view apartment descriptions, online videos, photos, floor plans, interactive maps and have instant contact with thousands of ForRent.com communities.
“We are pleased to add ForRent.com’s apartment communities to Homes.com,” said Jason Doyle, Homes.com vice president and general manager. “Choosing ForRent.com as Homes.com’s exclusive content provider is part of our continued effort to become the premier online destination for homebuyers, sellers, renters and real estate professionals.
