I am actually getting interested in Smorty. It gives me some unique advertising campaigns that I can take part in. The latest one to come my way is for Apartments for Rent in Los Angeles and the metro areas. Theres this site called http://www.4rentinla.com/ where you can locate furnished as well as unfurnished Los Angeles Apartments. The site actually guarantees that you can locate an apartment in 3 days!. I was actually going through the site and I see that the status of the vacancies are updated in real-time. This means that you get the best service. You are not chasing a shadow of a vacancy somewhere. If there is a vacancy, you see it and can confirm it then and there. The site is very user-friendly and even novices can get around easily. Some of the features of the site :
As a 4 Rent in LA member, you get:
* 50,000+ hourly-updated rental listings with 15,000 exclusive Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego rental properties you won't find on other free sites.
* Unlimited 90-day access to owner-listed apartments, houses, condos, duplexes, townhouses and guest homes.
* An hour of 1-on-1 consultation with a member of our experienced leasing staff.
* Thousands of pet-friendly rental listings.
* Real-Time vacancies just entered in real time.
* Online appointment scheduling directly with the landlords.
* Email alerts of new apartment listings.
* Save your search criteria and matching listings to your favorites.
* Interior and Exterior multiple pictures on most listings.
* Accurate maps and turn-by-turn driving directions.
* New Exclusive Satellite Mapping
* School district and transportation information on every rental listing.
* Intuitive, targeted searches by city, neighborhood, zip code, zip code radius, price range, pool, hardwood floors and more.
Damn, I even came across some testimonies on their site from very satisfied customers. And you even have an option where you can do a search for free!!.
You also have an option to register as a Landlord. This gives you a very unique oppurtunity to rent out your house to prospective takers. The site is intuitive and great!!
