RentSpider is now

RentSpider is now by

RentSpider who got bought out a while back from has now changed their name to

Looks like they charge $49 for 30 days.

Is it me, or did they make it really hard to find the rental ads on the site?

It looks like, except it costs $49/month instead of free!

We have changed the goal of our site from being just a listing site to concentrating on distributing ads to many of the top property listing sites. Soon we will add our own listing search site but all properties will be obtained via the rentaladdress system. In addition in the not to distance future we will be adding new features to allow for a complete property website including things like: Pay Rent On-Line, On-Line Applicant screening, Utility Hookup, Maintenance request and more.

Thanks for stopping by. I see you are distributing out to only free sites - any desire to distribute out to paid sites like mine?

We will be looking in to that very soon. In fact we are in the process of working on some deals with some of the largest paid sites. We are always looking for more places to list our properties and if the traffic can be proven for our cost then we will consider them.

When was rentspider sold? I missed that sale :)

Maybe I am reading wrong? Looks like they will compete with rentmarketer business model? I think that will be tough..Dan has a really strong product!

I had lunch with the spider guys I think in the summer right after it happened. They work in the next town over.

Do they still allow there free feed partners? I would think they will eliminate that eventually.

Maybe Cid will come back and answer your question.

We do like the rentmarketer concept and will be providing many of the feature they offer and a lot more. We are also going to keep the feed partners but will be changing the model so that we will only broadcast property that have paid the the service.

Super Home Rentals - Until more in the sales starts to use the single home sites, I don’t think you will see many doing it on homes for lease. At least in the Denver area. I know that I make sign riders for my homes with the property address as the URL which I point to a page I create. If someone could do this for property managers as part of the service, provide a sign rider with the address as the URL vs. the URL of the listing provider, and then have the URL point to the listing provider’s page of that home without a lot of additional cost, it may be something that can work. I wish you luck on the endeavor!

i have that already i dont do it for property managers per say as i provide the following service to my high end customers who have a rental home that rents for more then $10,000 a month i have two sign riders one is were it is a 1-800 number and it tell’s you about the home and then tells you the street address and were to view the home says the following : the home you are looking at is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath with a in-ground pool also tell’s you what schools in the area etc … etc…the address of this home is also 1129 Arco Drive you can also view it at When a renter calls to hear your “audio tour” of your listing, the system emails you their number (caller id) instantly so you NEVER MISS A LEAD.
the other sign rider is a street address rider and it tells you the url then when the home is rented the website sites there till it need to be rented again if the landlord decides to sell the home we can use the same url and info and then when the home is sold the website become’s a family website (which has a family tree, family photo album,scrap book ,blog,recipe center,file cabinet,family events calendar,and more )
if we use the the sign rider that is the 1-800 number to sell the home the caller can also choose to have a return call from a mortgage company such as lending tree or from a moving company such as mayflower all of this is free
( you can also get the lead to also try and be the buyers agent if they are not already using one ) it is in use on our high end rental homes were rentals start at $10,000 a month in such areas as Miami or are in the only cost for this is the one time domain fee and then if they choose to have the family website we charge for hosting each month and we charge for the hosting of the street url when it is in use for the rental or sale of the home but the rest is free
we are trying to work on how to make it affordable in all markets

SuperHomeRentals - It’s good to hear that you are doing something like that for your high end customers. Because I do something like that for all of my homes, I tell them that I market all homes like they are high end homes. I think you have a good extra service that you provide - Keep it up!

Robbie said in February 5th, 2008 at 6:18 pm

Gezzz! I have a hard time keeping up with just my site as it is. I could not imagine all that extra stuff. :)

Who knows maybe one day the market will demand it?
