OneKey® MLS, the largest Multiple Listing Service in New York, has launched an integration with RentSpree’s platform to streamline rental transactions. Now, all OneKey MLS subscribers will have access to RentSpree’s ApplyLink™ for new and existing rental listings, cutting down transaction time, limiting liability, increasing efficiency, and keeping the agent central to the rental transaction.
“The integration launched less than two months after the partnership was announced, demonstrating outstanding levels of collaboration and teamwork from all parties involved,” OneKey® MLS CEO Richard Haggerty said. “RentSpree is the latest in a series of resources we’ve added that allow us to continue delivering on our focus to empower our subscribers to grow their businesses with the latest and greatest real estate technologies available on the market.”
Demand for rentals in the New York regional marketplace continues to be strong, especially as interest rates make the homebuying journey more difficult for average buyers. Despite rental prices continuing to rise in New York, with fewer homes for sale, more prospective tenants are completing rental applications.
This was a driving factor in the decision to partner with RentSpree, CEO Haggerty said. “We believe this flagship rental tool can make a difference in our subscribers’ daily lives, make their workflow more efficient, and make it easier for them to aggregate all the pieces required for a successful rental transaction.”
Added RentSpree Co-Founder and CEO Michael Lucarelli, “Since we announced our partnership, our team has worked at record speed to ensure a smooth, successful integration. We are excited for OneKey® MLS subscribers to have access to our software, which will cut down the processing time from days to minutes on such important tasks as tenant screening as well as other valuable real estate tools.”
Once enabled, OneKey® MLS subscribers need only toggle RentSpree on for each of their rental listings and RentSpree will do the rest – walking prospective tenants through the application process, collecting application fees, screening tenants, and alerting subscribers when completed applications have been submitted.
“RentSpree will allow our subscribers to drastically reduce the time they take with any individual rental transaction and easily manage the entire process with just a couple of clicks,” said CEO Haggerty.
