I discovered this awesome Remax website that maps out all their listings and searches based on price, style, type of house and then also on Walkability and Transit scores. They also have some rental listings; I really like the idea of working with an agent to find rental properties and building a relationship that can transition into a home purchase.
It really bothers me when real estate agents and companies have not joined the youthful world of social media. If they’re not interested in getting my online time, I’m not interested in giving them my money. This isn’t space flight people, it’s Twitter and it’s a FREE marketing tool. Sad sad day. (If you want you can hire me and I’ll sort it out for you ;))
At the end of they day, looking for a property takes a lot of work and time, social media speeds things up enormously for me, and I just don’t have the time, energy, or care to search for companies listing rentals (especially without photos! Really? What era are we in!? Get an iPhone or Android or (new) Blackberry and its instant!)
