Today we're excited to announce that all properties, regardless of size, will be free to list on HotPads. This is especially important for apartment communities, which are often required to pay to list their units on other housing sites. Switching to a free model will help HotPads deliver the most value for everyone looking for a place and everyone listing a place. In the process, we're making sure HotPads continues leading the way in being the most comprehensive map-based search engine online.
For more visibility and enhanced lead results, free listings can be upgraded to a featured status. We already have a dedicated team discussing the benefits of featured listings with hundreds of property management companies and apartment communities across the country.
Ultimately, our goal is to guarantee the most comprehensive search experience possible. As always, quality standards will remain high and we will make sure only the best listings make it onto the site.
