How does Zillow Rental Manager help real estate agents?
The key to a successful rentals business is efficiency, and Zillow Rental Manager helps agents fill vacancies fast.
Zillow Rental Manager gets exposure for your rental listings on the most visited rental network on the web*, with three of the top six rental search sites (Zillow, Trulia and HotPads).** The Zillow Rental network is particularly valuable if you’re working to fill a single family vacancy, since houses, townhomes, duplexes and condos listed via Zillow Rental Manager get over five times as many views as they do on the next-largest rental network.
We’ve made it easy to get started, easy to keep getting leads from Zillow Rentals, and easy to get tenants in the door with features like Zillow 3D Home® tours, online applications and online lease signing.
It’s a great solution for busy real estate professionals.
How is Zillow Rental Manager different from syndicating a rental listing via a feed?
Zillow Rental Manager gives you more direct control over how your listing appears on the Zillow Rental network and provides access to additional features that you may not know about if you currently syndicate listings via the MLS: free virtual tours via the Zillow 3D Home® app, online applications and online lease signing (upload your own or use our free lease-building tool in select states).
Can I transfer my existing listings into Zillow Rental Manager?
You can find and claim your prior and current listings using email address or phone verification. This will pre-populate the address and basic property details. Once you update with current photos and additional property information, you can activate the listing and expect to hear from prospective tenants in a matter of minutes.
