How Can We Help Data Consumers?
Data is Accurate and Sourced Directly From Property Managers
Who’s in a better position to supply and continually confirm information than the property’s owner? Because Rental Beast’s information is sourced directly from landlords and property owners themselves, data consumers and their teams can be sure that the information they are basing models and key decisions on is well-sourced and accurate.
Up to Date
Thanks to our hyper-local, devoted teams of database specialists, the information in our database is always up-to-date. We believe on a “boots on the ground” approach, meaning we are in constant contact with the owners of our Rental Beast approved listings to ensure that no user is receiving dated or incorrect information. This means that the models produced by data consumers will not only be accurate, but will be up-to-date, too.
Rental Beast is the only scaled source of rental listing data verified directly with landlords and property owners. Our database specialists personally contact all listings to post on Rental Beast. Instead of aggregating their own information to get a full picture, data consumers need only rely on our database.
Fulfillment grade data
Rental Beast goes beyond collecting skeleton information about properties (we collect that, too!) We also collect fulfillment grade data. This means more granular information including pet policy, heat/AC, and parking. The more information we have, the more model, and thus better decisions, data consumers can create.
Rentals are Important to Americans
For many, renting remains a smart economic choice, and provides renters with a degree of flexibility and lack of accountability not found in home-ownership. As a result, rental occupancy has reached an all time high. Increasingly, the data surrounding rentals proves to be value for any data consumers hoping to capitalize on this important and enduring real estate trend.
