Be notified immediately with push notifications via Trulia’s dedicated Rental Apps

SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2012 – Trulia, a leading online marketplace for homebuyers, sellers, renters and real estate professionals, today announced both Rent SF Now and J.Wavro Associates, will syndicate their San Francisco rental listings to Trulia. Consumers will now have access to a distinctive group of new properties making it easier for Trulia users to find the right place to live. And with dedicated mobile apps for rentals, Trulia is making it easier to find an apartment in San Francisco.

“Trulia is focused on delivering more rental listings to our users by working directly with partners in the industry,” said Divya Bhat, Sr. Product Manager, Trulia Rentals. "We aim to take the hassle out of browsing listings by providing tools and apps that cater to the short and often competitive timeline of searching for a rental. With features like real-time alerts for new listings, a mobile map view and local amenity data, we provide renters with critical context as they browse and tour rentals. "

“Prospective renters are searching online for listings while they are out-and-about,” said James Wavro of J.Wavro Associates. “Once we saw the popular iPhone and Android apps from Trulia we realized how beneficial it would be for our business to tap into mobile rental searchers through the Trulia platform.”

“The rental market moves quickly, particularly in a place like San Francisco, and renters are increasingly searching for apartment listings from their mobile phones,” said David Chesnosky of RentSFNow. “Trulia’s iPhone and Android apps enable us to get in front of renters while they’re searching on-the-go.”

Finding an apartment to rent can be challenging and in San Francisco a variety of factors, including a strong job market and low inventory, have been forcing prices up. The latest Trulia Rent Monitor showed rents are up 14.7% year-over-year, during the month of June.

In this environment, renters can benefit from tools Trulia provides to help them find what they are looking for quickly and efficiently. Trulia’s dedicated rentals apps for iPhone and Android are optimized for the tight time frame renters operate on when searching for their next place to call home. The app provides a rich interface allowing prospective renters to browse by zip code or neighborhood for current rentals, but also highlights new listings almost immediately, via push notifications and color-coded markers which note newer properties.

The Trulia Rentals App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch, online and in the Play store from Android
