LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- RentSpree, the industry's premier end-to-end rental management software provider, today announced its latest partnership with the Austin Board of REALTORS® and its 20,000+ member MLS, the Austin/Central Texas Realty Information Service, to facilitate the instant creation of an ApplyLink™ for rental listings.
With over 25,000 total residential leases closed through the ACTRIS MLS in 2022, this full integration helps Central Texas REALTORS® generate more leads, reduce transaction time, and lower operating costs.
"Over half of Austin households are renter-occupied, and our region's rental market is just as fast-paced and in-demand as residential home sales at large," said Emily Chenevert, chief executive officer of ABoR and ACTRIS MLS. "It's imperative that the agents we serve have the tools needed to work smarter, not harder, and provide a seamless experience for their rental clients. RentSpree is that tool for us."
As one of the fastest-growing regions in the U.S. for over a decade, the Austin-Round Rock MSA continues to attract a large number of out-of-state and in-region renters. The number of active residential lease listings averaged 2,688 listings in 2022, with approximately 2,500 new lease listings hitting the market each month.
"Our mission is to be an ally, partner and supporter to progressive MLSs such as ACTRIS," Michael Lucarelli, RentSpree co-founder and chief executive officer, said. "RentSpree's MLS integration makes it easy for agents to opt-in for an automated rental process during listing input. That ensures that all ACTRIS subscribers can easily access the service without ever leaving the platform."
