The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

HotPads.com, a rental property Web site that launched in November, offers free property listings and free search capabilities to consumers looking for rentals.

The site features a map-based search platform that allows users to specify unit types such as homes (full or divided), condos, large apartment communities and medium-sized apartment buildings. Visitors can also choose whether to search for sublets, corporate housing, rentals or all categories, and the site offers a “find a roommate” search option.
