Places4Students.com has recently launched a nationwide media campaign to encourage homeowners to consider renting their spare room to a student. Our goal is to help students find a place to live for next semester.
Across North America, low vacancy rates continue to exist and student tenants are trying desperately to compete in the rental housing market. Finding safe and affordable accommodations at this time of the year is extremely stressful for these renters, especially international students travelling from abroad.
Our team is also suggesting that students explore all rental options when searching for housing. It may be more difficult to lease an apartment individually, so considering a shared accommodation or room for rent in a home might be more feasible. Also, some motels and hotels have been renting rooms on a monthly basis to students. Word of mouth is often a great resource, so talking with friends and classmates about your housing search could lead to a room for rent in the community.
Some colleges and universities are offering FREE general listings at this time to generate more housing options for their students online (check our website for offers and details). Feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested in renting space in their home.
Places4Students customer service team is available to answer questions and help landlords to repost or set-up new rental property listings at 1-866-766-0767.
