As mentioned in our 1871 post, we consider ourselves proud Chicagoans (even though some of us live in the burbs). So we’re always excited to be featured in Chicago tech publications.
First there was this great ApartmentJet story from Built In Chicago.
Now the fine folks at ChicagoInno have published a story highlighting ApartmentJet’s goal to turn multifamily vacancy into revenue for owners and operators.
ApartmentJet, which just officially launched in May, is a management platform that allows multifamily apartment owners and management companies to list their vacant units on homesharing sites such as Airbnb. Owners manage all aspects of the listing, including bookings, communications and reviews, all within the platform. They also include a built-in security feature, where any prospective guest goes through background screening, to ensure safety of permanent residents in the building.
The founders see this as a one-stop-shop marketing management tool where owners can see all the details of short-term rentals in one place, which is key given the complexity of many of multifamily building owners’ operations.
