Rentals Now Searchable on REcolorado.com

Rental properties are a hot commodity in Denver. As of Tuesday, April 28, consumers can search for rental homes on REcolorado.com. This means opening up your business to a whole new group of clients – renters! Get connected with new clients by entering your rental properties into Matrix.

Curious how it works? Using Matrix to input and search rentals is similar to Residential Detached and Residential Attached. See our reference document for information on entering rentals into Matrix for display on REcolorado.com.

Are Your Listings on realtor.com?

As of April 28, your active listings are being syndicated based on your selections in the Matrix Internet Display tab.

If you want your listings to display on realtor.com and ListHub channels, please make syndication selections for all of your active listings in Matrix listing input. See our How To document for step-by-step instructions.

For more information on the REcolorado Syndication Program, see here.

Build a Relationship with New Clients – Renters!

You already have a great relationship with homebuyers, but what about renters? Now that rental properties are available on REcolorado.com, it’s time to inform your clients about all of their options for their next home.

Send your clients to our new pages on REcolorado.com, Renting a Home and Rent vs Buy, to educate them on rental properties. Then direct them to the client portal in Matrix and help them search for a home that is right for them.
