MIAMI — The MIAMI Association of REALTORS (MIAMI) has partnered with real estate technology firm Rental Beast to add more rental-centric tools for its members so they can better serve their clients.
“Rentals are more important now than ever. When housing inventory is scarce, rentals are a great safe harbor, and working with rentals is a core part of MIAMI subscribers’ businesses,” MIAMI CEO Teresa King Kinney said. “Our focus in Miami has always been bringing the best tools to our subscribers. By integrating Rental Beast’s extensive suite of tools and rental inventory into our MLS, we continue to further that mission.”
MIAMI, the largest local Realtor Association in the U.S., will use Rental Beast’s hosted MLS solution to power rental-centric search, listing ingestion, listing syndication, and listing maintenance systems. Additionally, all MIAMI members gain access to Apply Now, Rental Beast’s secure, FCRA-compliant online application processing and tenant screening engine, and Rental Beast University, a comprehensive online learning center for rental education.
Designed by agents, for agents, Rental Beast for MLS seamlessly integrates with Matrix, CoreLogic’s flagship multiple listing solution, which services MIAMI agents and more than 1.2 million real estate professionals nationwide.
Through this partnership, rental listings will appear on major listing hubs via existing MIAMI feeds and RentalBeast.com. Rental Beast will also power MIAMI’s consumer-facing, SEO-optimized rental search portal, instantly marketing rental listings to eager Miami renters, while expanding MIAMI’s online brand presence. All generated leads are routed to designated listing agents, with no additional fees or per-lead charges.
Additionally, MIAMI members have the option to upgrade to Rental Beast’s premium agent platform, providing members with access to Rental Beast’s database of nearly 9 million rental properties not found on any MLS. Premium subscribers also gain access to supplementary listing syndication to some of the nation’s largest rental properties, including Facebook Marketplace and realtor.com, a rental-centric CRM, one-click social sharing, their own consumer-facing rental search portal, and direct support and mentorship by seasoned real estate professionals.
“This partnership furthers Rental Beast’s goal of ensuring MLSs large and small can help their subscribers make money with rentals, and we’re so excited to offer Rental Beast to MIAMI subscribers,” said Ishay Grinberg, Rental Beast’s founder and CEO. “There are more agents in the U.S. than homes available for sale, and MLSs across the country are adapting to the reality that rentals must make up a core part of their subscribing agents’ business. We are proud to ensure MIAMI will be the center of excellence for rentals in the Miami-area.”
