SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- VaultWare, a leading provider of Internet marketing and leasing solutions for the apartment industry, today announced the launch of VaultWare Market Comps, a convenient research tool that simplifies the collection and analysis of a property's local competitive market data. Market Comps is a free value-added service that is powered by Rent.com and VaultWare property data and can be accessed from the VaultWare Control Panel or the Rent.com Manager's Console.
VaultWare Market Comps eliminates the time-consuming and error-prone practice of property staff calling numerous competitive properties to obtain their current rental rates. With automatic, weekly data updates, properties can now easily see accurate competitive pricing and quickly be aware of rent changes for different apartment types in their defined competitive market.
"A lot of time is spent calling around for competitive rents and often times the quality of the data obtained is not reliable," said Mike Cornell, President of VaultWare. "Most other sources are expensive and already out of date when purchased. Market Comps does the work for the properties and ensures they are aware of changes to their market conditions as they happen rather than reacting to a trend that happened weeks or months ago."
VaultWare Market Comps features include:
- Dynamic graphs for visual representation of trends and property comparisons
- Aggregate and individual competitor views
- Detailed comp report generation and export to Excel capabilities
- Customizable alerts to be notified of competitive market rent changes
VaultWare and Rent.com customers can take advantage of VaultWare Market Comps Premium features free of charge until August 1, 2011. For more information or assistance with accessing VaultWare Market Comps, properties can contact VaultWare at [email protected] or (480) 905-3670 option 2.
