NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, MyGradPad launched version 3.0 of their apartment-listing platform, a project 10 months in the making. The technology behind the new site makes apartment searching easier and faster than before by offering access to real-time industry data, neighborhood information, and most importantly, access to thousands of available rental and sales listings. Users can create a customized profile where they can save, share and collaborate with roommates or guarantors on listings. Once the user selects the apartments they are interested in and a time they are available for viewings, the platform automates the process of scheduling apartment showings saving time for interested buyers and renters.
The platform offers tremendous advantages for landlords and listing agents as well, including the option to have their buildings and apartments reproduced in 360 Video. This would allow potential renters and buyers to virtually walk through an apartment without actually having to be there. According to the Founder and CEO of MyGradPad, Brittny Cantor, "Virtual reality is here, and we are the first listing platform in the industry to offer a service of creating the 360 VR experience, integrate the technology and marketing the product. MyGradPad v3.0 will transform how apartments are searched, toured and rented in NYC, and cut through the inefficiencies and the heavy time investment that come with an apartment hunt." MyGradPad estimates that landlords who partner with MyGradPad will reduce a listing's time on the market by over 50%, largely attributed to renters and buyers selecting apartments based on the listing's online presentation and desirability. When viewing an apartment in 360 Video, the user can experience 360 degrees of the space on their mobile device, personal computer, or Google Cardboard. The cost to create this 360 VR experience for an apartment starts at $150 and can be added to a listing in less than 24 hours. MyGradPad is currently the only company marketing this product to landlords and providing a platform to display their product to millions of potential customers around the world. "Any apartment is now available for viewing no matter where you are or what time it is – it's apartment searching on your own schedule," stated Cantor.
Whether you are moving to NYC or are currently a resident, the platform makes searching, scheduling and renting an apartment quick and easy.
