WINNIPEG, MB, April 25, 2023 /CNW/ – Gryd partners with Apartments.com, a CoStar Group (NASDAQ: CSGP) brand, to offer property owners, managers, and REITs cutting-edge media tools designed to enhance property listings and make it easy for renters to find their next home.
“As the Canadian real estate market continues to become increasingly competitive, property managers can leverage our media services to engage with potential renters and lease out their properties at a faster rate,” says Josh Glow, President at Gryd. “Property managers constantly need new and innovative ways to attract potential tenants in this fast-paced market.”
A Matterport survey shows how PropTech significantly influences leasing trends in Canada: 3D Virtual Tours can increase the time someone spends on a website by 500 percent compared to other websites, while 3D media boosts organic website traffic, leading to more qualified leads and sales.
“This new partnership with Apartments.com will also give every business who partners with us the ability to showcase their listings and reach more apartment hunters on a new platform free of charge,” says Glow. “It is as simple as creating an Apartments.com account and adding your Gryd media.”
Apartments.com launched in Canada at a time where the population continues to expand and the demand for apartments continues to grow.
“Renters crave 3D tours as they research their next home, and we’re excited to partner with Gryd to make it easier to connect renters and communities,” says Stuart Richens, Vice President of Product at Apartments.com. “This partnership will deliver higher-quality, faster-converting leads to our Canadian clients.”
