Rental property managers and landlords have a new place to advertise their listings: DoNotRent.com, a national rental review website launching this week after a year and a half in beta, that's looking to be the go-to spot for unbiased consumer reviews of apartments, student housing and rental homes.
The site, which claims to have about 2,400 reviews of rental properties across the U.S., has sparse listings and reviews, as of now, for many markets. But the Chicago-based company says it's working with some of the top real estate investment trusts (REITs) to bulk up the volume of listings on the site.
"Our goal is to provide a platform for users to search and write unbiased honest reviews so other renters can make an informed decision about renting an apartment," said DoNotRent.com founder and CEO Mike Cerny.
