SkipBrokers.com grows to over five million apartments in all major cities in the country.
New York, NY –SkipBrokers.com started with just five web pages in 2005 and has now over five million available apartments online. SkipBrokers started by helping apartment hunters avoid broker fees when renting NYC apartments. Now SkipBrokers.com is in almost every city across the United States. How SkipBrokers.com started was by helping future tenants find no fee apartments in NYC. The phrase “no fee apartments” is popular among the New York real-estate market where apartment hunters in Manhattan are looking to find apartments to rent without paying a hefty broker fee that usually runs about 15% of the annual rent. As you can imagine, rents for NYC apartments aren’t cheap so these broker fees can amount to almost as much as a down payment for a house in many other cities. However, this issue of paying broker fees is not as common among renters in other cities. Most prospective tenants will usually drive or walk around town and very easily be greeted by a leasing agent or property manager that would not charge any fees for their help because they are paid to do so. Although driving around town is one option it is usually not the most efficient process which is why more and more prospective tenants these days shop for apartment rentals online.
“After finally developing a technology and solution that really helps people find NYC no fee apartments, we had to quickly think of ways to differentiate SkipBrokers.com from other national rental sites as we expanded to other cities”, said SkipBrokers.com Chief Executive, Paul Salamanca. Since no fee apartments are non existent in other cities, Salamanca didn’t want his company to just be another apartment rental website with pictures, floor plans and listings. He wanted to provide more value and more customer support. “SkipBrokers.com has many similar search and map features compared to other national apartment rental sites because many of these functions are important and are what consumers need to see when searching for apartments. However, we’ve added extra layers of support called our Concierge Desk.” Salamanca added. The Concierge Desk is their 800-533-0905 toll-free number that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone looking to rent an apartment in over 75 cities across the United States. Not only is the phone number toll-free, but their Concierge Desk service is also free to anyone looking for apartment rentals.
In addition to searching for over 5 million available apartments directly on SkipBroekrs.com, people looking to rent apartments in almost every city can call SkipBrokers.com’s Concierge Desk to tell them about the most important features of their next home. From there they can give the Desk a specific city or zip code and SkipBrokers.com’s Concierge Desk will do the searching for them and will act as a liaison between the apartment hunter and property managers. They will help find the nicest available apartments within a given price range and will also give inside information about the area. This allows the apartment hunter to concentrate less on filtering through the less interesting apartments while SkipBrokers.com does much of the leg work. Apartment hunters are receiving information directly from the Concierge Desk about apartments that match their desired criteria and will receive available times to see these properties. With so much attention going towards helping people looking for apartment rentals, it will be interesting to see if SkipBrokers.com can keep up with the increasing demand.
