A new start-up company PadMatcher, Inc. aims to revolutionize the apartment rental process in Boston through the release of a social networking real estate website PadMatchercom. With over 10 years of experience in the Boston rental market, the Company’s founders have discovered a way to address the concerns of renters, agents, and landlords.
PadMatcher.com links renters, agents, and landlords through a new social networking platform similar to Match.com and the popular Craigslist.org, only with features tailored to the apartment and roommate searcher. The site is free for renters to create profiles and search for apartments. Once a profile is created, a renter can actively search for roommates or apartments. Renters have the ability to contact listing agents directly and anonymously. If a renter prefers a more laid back approach, he/she can receive messages from agents and landlords about apartments that match their criteria. Renters can upgrade their profiles by pulling their credit rating for a minimal fee. All of which according to CEO Eric Chavin “takes the guess work out of apartment search”.
