About Us

  • We control all content; we do not allow self-posting ads. You’ll appreciate this simple concept because the information you get from our site, while we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy, it is the best shot at making sure information is accurate and ownership is legitimate. We always review and confirm information that is posted on our website.

  • We charge property owners to advertise on our site. Not only does this help eliminate scams, but in general, property owners paying to advertise have an appreciation and understanding of the community of quality properties we strive to represent on our site.

  • We require our single ads to be accurate including the actual price, photos, availability, location, size, and amenities. You may find general ads for either apartment complexes or communities that offer general descriptions and pricing, but these are all from companies we know and trust.

  • We require photos of the specific units posted as available which are often taken by our staff. This adds another layer of security as we confirm units are as advertised. Sometimes when actual photos are not available, we do allow renderings or photos of similar units to be used if they are clearly marked. These concepts seem simple, but if you’ve searched the web for rentals, you know it rarely exists. This is why we have a loyal following of potential tenants looking for homes.

  • To advertise on our site, we do have requirements which you may not have seen with other web sites. We do not allow self-posting and require ads to be accurate and include pictures, pricing, and a specific address. We believe the accurate representation of your units is one of the most important aspects of marketing your properties to prospective tenants.

  • You’ll get personal service when you advertise with us, including taking photos and creating walk-through video tours of your units at no additional charge, because we believe if you accurately represent your property in detail, you’ll get the best possible tenant.

  • Over the years, we’ve found this to be the ideal formula. It’s more work for us, but it is what people searching for rentals want, and in return, you’ll get the best tenants.

  • Whether you own or manage single family houses or apartment buildings it’s easy to get lost in all the content on any of the free or paid web-based advertising options available. Your listings can get lost and are forced to compete with the other advertisers for attention.

  • We strive to represent a limited number of the best possible mix of quality rentals available by the best managers and owners. And get owners the best possible tenants.

  • For a limited time, we also include all content on our QR website that will provide you with additional marketing options. Call our office for details.

  • Thanks for taking the time to consider Metro-Rentals.com for your advertising and marketing needs. We’re sure you’re going to enjoy working with us.

  • Back when I purchased my first property in 1981, when I had a vacancy, I had a couple choices to advertise for tenants. Purchase a small, standard, store bought sign that would be placed in front of the property or in the window that said “For Rent” with a spot where I’d write in my telephone number. Or to reach a wider audience I might purchase a classified ad in the local or campus newspaper where they would charge me per word to describe my available units. This often resulted in a lot of inquiries from people, but it also required a lot of time on the phone, describing the property, scheduling showings, and filtering out unqualified and uninterested prospects. This traditional method of renting a unit was time and labor intensive; not to mention the expense of those limited classified ads that barely described the property I had to offer. Or I would type out a list of available properties and make it available to my potential tenants. While this lessened the amount of time spent on the phone, it now required a lot of time on the computer, faxing, or postage. From the start, I was always looking for a better way. Then came the evolution of technology and the creation of the World Wide Web, and I discovered the potential for a better way of advertising, marketing, and renting my properties. THE INTERNET! And I imagined if I could get other likeminded property owners to join me on my website, we would all benefit. But convincing owners in the early 1990’s to advertise and market their properties in a new unproven format on the World Wide Web was challenging. The web was just coming to the public and web advertising was very much in its infancy. But those owners who did join me by advertising on my website, Metro-Rentals.com enjoyed the benefits of the efficiency we created and metro-rentals became a successful separate company! As time marched on, we grew to offer services such as taking photos and creating video tours as well as editing and creating content to help owners lease their rental properties. We were an early adopter embracing the quick response image codes commonly now known as QR codes and built a website taking advantage of mobile device technology. Of course, there’s a lot more to the story that got us where we are today, including the support of our many advertisers, employees and interns that worked on our websites and with the continued support of our customers over the years.
