We’re reaching out to all real estate professionals out there who can lend a helping hand to those displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Tens of thousands of people have lost their homes due to this natural disaster, so it’s up to all of us to offer our support in these difficult times.
As part of the Yardi Systems Inc. family, Point2 Homes is helping sister company RENTCafé assist people who are relocating because of the devastating hurricane. RENTCafé has created a housing registry website where property managers can add their available rental units with special concessions, and where displaced residents can search for a temporary or permanent home.
Help us share the news about this registry to all those who have properties they’re willing to offer and to all those who are in need of a place to call home.
Yardi and RENTCafé have waived all listing fees, so housing providers can post their properties on the platform at no charge. Displaced residents also get to use the website for free.
Additionally, RENTCafé customers are being offered disaster response assistance through which they can communicate with any residents they have in the affected area. Nudge messaging, voice messaging and call automation are all offered at no charge.
“We have many valued clients in the affected area, and it is important to us to assist those clients as well as their residents who may have been displaced. Thousands of people have lost their housing due to this devastating natural disaster, and we want to help in any way we can,” said Anant Yardi, president and founder of Yardi.
Please spread the word about the Hurricane Harvey Disaster Response Page and help us gather as many available homes as possible. Share this on your websites and social media profiles and let everyone know about the initiative.
