New Digital Start Up Shakes up Detroit Apartment and Home Rental Market

DETROIT, MI – 06-28-2018 (Press Release Jet) — Detroit City Homes, a new digital startup, is going to change the way Detroit property managers and landlords present themselves and their rental properties across the internet. Detroit City Homes was founded by a real estate entrepreneur Shah Karim and is backed by Sovereign Proptech.

Now, Detroit’s property managers and landlords have an affordable and dedicated local portal to engage with Detroit’s growing rental tenant population, whether it is Detroit apartments or houses to rent in Detroit. Detroit City Homes enables users to upload photos and videos of their properties on one website which will then automatically be distributed to 100+ real estate websites and dedicated social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, saving users time and effort on their online marketing activities. 

Prospective tenants have the ability to search options that combine selective filters that screen for their desirable rental home. Property managers are encouraged to engage with tenants in a way that promotes the benefits and latest news about living in Detroit. Whilst, the portal also assembles a carefully curated content stream of articles, blog posts, images and quotes on Detroit. The portal makes it easy to find houses to rent in Detroit.

Detroit City Homes has been launched in both web and mobile Compatible Versions. This means that users can advertise and rent properties at their desk or whilst on the move with their mobile phone. They can complete all tasks in real-time such as browse properties, add new properties for rental listing, update profile details, select and confirm property viewing dates/times with tenants and property managers, and (in phase 2 of the portal release) complete credit checks and confirm rental agreements.

On the launch of this portal, Shah Karim, Director of Detroit City Homes, said Detroit has one of the fastest growing rental markets in the United States, hence it needs a local portal that can facilitate communication and instant sharing of updates between the large number of property managers and prospective tenants. We want to make it easy for property managers to promote their properties and secure sales, and for tenants to make smarter and informed rental decisions.

“We are passionate about Detroit and passionate about Detroit’s rental homes”, said Shah Karim “we devote ourselves to highlighting the best of Detroit and help renters find locations and homes which meet their criteria”. 

With pricing packages starting at $20 per month per property, property managers can expect as much as a 240% increase in audience engagement, while spending 50% less time on their online marketing efforts.

With a variety of competitive pricing options and array of advanced web tools, Detroit City Homes is the flexible, affordable option for property managers looking to target a fast growing pool of tenants and to optimize their rental property marketing.
