DoNotRent.com Helps College Students Find Apartments Near Campus

Chicago, IL (I-Newswire) January 26, 2014 - DoNotRent.com, the first national social apartment review site by and for renters, recently added neighborhood information and data to their site. This new content will help college age renters and parents research and find the best housing in thousands of university communities nationwide.

New demographic, college, school and community information will help college students and renters make an informed decision about housing and the quality of life around university campuses, said DoNotRent.com CEO Mike Cerny.

As renters research a neighborhood or specific apartment complex, the free site provides capsule demographics of the nearby area from Zillow, the second most visited real estate site according to Experian Hitwise. This new content describes neighborhoods from "power singles" high-income urban singles to "suburban climbers" who are younger suburban singles. Other quick-read visual descriptions include: age distribution, commute times, relationship status and homes with kids.

DoNotRent.com also added nearby colleges and postsecondary programs to their apartment listings so students can see exactly how far an apartment is located from campus.

Families researching apartments will find helpful new reports on nearby schools provided by partner GreatSchools that include school type, grades, ratings from parents and distance from an apartment community.

Searching for an apartment, student housing or rental home can be a frustrating experience. Finding a good apartment is often based on word of mouth opinions that can be haphazard. DoNotRent.com provides a user friendly social platform bringing renters together to search reviews and ratings in over 10,000 communities nationwide and create their own reviews of apartments rented or toured. "Millennials trust their friends and social connections far more than they trust advertising. DoNotRent.com helps bring renters together to share their apartment renting experiences across the U.S.," said Cerny

"We're not a gripe site for upset renters and we remain neutral," said Cerny. "When users visit the site and see the logo (Do Rent - thumbs up) and (Do Not Rent - thumbs down) and see positive/negative trending reviews they understand that users are posting both good and bad reviews."

Landlords and property managers can list their apartments for free on DoNotRent.com. The apartment listings on the site are compiled from public records and anyone can add an apartment listing for free. Apartment managers take advantage of the low cost claiming service which allows them to advertise vacant units, add photos, videos, receive leads and respond to reviews.
