Apartments.com review by <span>Stephen S.</span>

Even after using sites like zillow and trulia, i thought apartments.com was best

What do you like best?

apartments.com had a unique feature which i did not find in any other site search, the ability to see subleases, which is ultimately how I found my current place. From now on, when I look for apartments, i ensure that I have checked apartments.com because I do not want to miss the diamond in the rough.

What do you dislike?

Only thing I disliked is although it had many places that major competitors didn't have, it was lacking the common places that competitors had.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are ever looking for an apartment, you must give this site a glance at the very least. there are hidden apartments out there that other sites dont have!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was in a crunch to find an apartment at a unique time and it helped tremendously as I was able to get a great apartment at a discount in September.

Making Good Changes

What do you like best?

Ever since a few years back when Apartments.com was bought out by CoStar they have been making good strides forward. They have focused a lot of their dollars on SEO spend to help improve experience for both the user and the advertisers. I have definitely seen some positive steps in the right direction.

What do you dislike?

Apartments.com had many syndication issues within it's newly released backend management system. It is supposed to integrate with your software management system but isn't always accurate. This also created a lot of man hours to fix and update. Slowly the kinks are being worked out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They only allow you to sign a yearly contract as an advertiser which can create a burden on those that do not want to lock into a 12 month contract. Otherwise the product really is increasing in quality and usability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They definitely have improved their quality of renters. We are finding a lower volume of traffic for each of our communities, but the leads are much more qualified so that really helps improve the return on investment.

What Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Listing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Cumbersome back-end with kinks that need to be worked out, but powerful tool

What do you like best?

Polygon search tool if your property is located in a hot part of town

What do you dislike?

Very cumbersome back end to make corrections or changes to a listing

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are pouring a LOT of money into the product to make it a more robust search platform, with that, however, comes the inability to have complete control over your content.

Excellent Source for Comparables

What do you like best?

I appreciate the ease of use of the site and ability to see availabilities in certain areas.

I would like information showing what people had rented for in the past few months

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps with rental comps to value Proforma's in regards to the investment properties we analyze.

High Quality Marketing

What do you like best?

Apartments.com reaches more renters than any other mainstream site. The reps are all very friendly and check in often to make sure each client is happy with their listing. They also provide several different package options for different budgets.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that properties can only have a complimentary basic listing for a short time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use your local rep to your advantage! They are very helpful!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our listing provides a lot of great leads and is a wonderful marketing tool!

John McMahon Apartments review

What do you like best?

I am a very big fan of the search criteria bar where you can define specific neighborhoods down to only a few blocks. I also like the outline of the neighborhood that it gives you so you can actually see where it is being defined.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how it is not easy to search multiple neighborhoods at a time. This would be very helpful if someone was trying to decide between two different neighborhoods.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Apartments.com is a very good way for someone to get a quick understanding of the residential market in a certain area. It is also very good for understanding what you will be getting for what you are paying, and which is easily compared to other apartments in the area.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to easily understand a market with a quick search, and have an understanding of the amenities available for a given pricepoint.
