Rent.com to Contribute Rental Listing Data to PadZing.com

By Anuradha Kher, Online News Editor  Scottsdale, Ariz.–Realty DataTrust and Rent.com have signed an agreement to integrate rental rate data from over 25,000 property listings on Rent.com into apartment market data and trends website, PadZing.com. The inclusion of Rent.com property data with data from current content provider VaultWare, an online apartment availability and reservation system, will make PadZing.com a comprehensive online source for up-to-date apartment rent and vacancy data. PadZing.com provides subscribers, such as property managers, with a tool to obtain competitive information on demand. Rather than relying on manual collection efforts and dated information, PadZing.com provides instant access to current data with mapping and customization features. “We want to provide property managers and owners with a means to quickly and easily get the data they want and need to understand their specific market,” says Mike Mueller, CEO of Realty DataTrust, the creator of PadZing.com. “Our agreement with Rent.com significantly expands PadZing.com’s reach and will provide improved analysis of very specific geographic areas.”  Peggy Abkemeier, general manager of Rent.com, says, “We are excited about this opportunity to contribute property data to PadZing.com, which we view as a valuable tool for our property customers to aid in the efficient collection of up-to-date rent and vacancy information, allowing them to make timely business decisions.”
