(Dec. 22, 2017)  Move, Inc., operator of realtor.com announced this month it has selected Apartment List, the fastest-growing apartment rental marketplace, to exclusively power the apartment community listings on its realtor.com and Doorsteps.com websites.

The Apartment List platform will complement realtor.com’s rental listings content.

Apartment List hosts five million visits each month nation­wide. Upon a recent check, realtor.com offered 76 apartments for rent throughout Worcester and Wicomico counties, whereas apartmentlist.com was advertising 138.

“At realtor.com, our mission is to make the home journey simple, efficient and enjoyable. As we evaluated potential rental partners, Apartment List stood out among a crowded field of competitors,” said Ryan O’Hara, chief executive officer of Move, Inc. “Apartment List is changing how people search for apartments by offering a highly customized experience that is built on renters’ personal priorities. It’s this type of innovation that aligns with our philosophy and makes Apartment List the right rentals partner for the experience we are striving to deliver across our platforms.”

As housing prices continue to increase, the rental market is often the first place people look for a home. Realtor.com and Doorsteps.com attract more than five million unique visitors each month resulting in 120 million monthly page views.

“We are thrilled to be selected as realtor.com’s exclusive partner for apartment community listings, bringing more than 3.5 million rental units to their substantial audience,” said John Kobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apartment List. “We’re bringing together two leading digital marketplaces to simplify the rental process for millions of families in the U.S.”

The Apartment List rental inventory will begin appearing on realtor.com and doorsteps.com in January.
