Addressing a Customer's Request...

Hi Everyone,
We just received a question from someone who placed an Ad: "I would like the ability to list by county rather than by city"

This ability is available when placing the Ad (You can enter a slew of cities and counties), and if you did not do that the first time around, you can log into your Control Panel Click Here with your Username and Password to Edit your Ad.

Have a Great Day and Happy Rent-to-Owning !

Site updates

Happy Wednesday - and a rainy one to us here in the Northeastern US.
Look on the bright side...at least we don't have to shovel rain....!

OK, we made a few tweaks to the site, namely, we removed the old 2009 credit card expiration dates, changed all references from MSN to BING, and we have installed some compression software on our web server. Why is that good? That means pages on the site will load even faster for you, and it is all about giving you the best user experience possible!

Happy Monday !

Happy Monday to everyone, and may this be a productive week.

I'd like to clarify a few issues that came up, and we'll be doing this every few days.

In response to "I found the site through Yahoo! search. Do you have any Radio or Magazine Ads?"

The answer to this is Yes & Yes
On our Press page (http://www.lease2buy.com/press.php), there is a link there that you can click and listen to our Radio Ad. As for magazines, we will be included in an Ad in Financial Advisor Magazine, as well as in a Major Canadian Real Estate paper, both within the next 2 months.

One other similar one: "Do you Advertise on social sites like craigslist - many homes are listed there! "
The short answer to this is Yes, as some of our Ads do get cross-posted there to provide maximum exposure. As far as general advertising on Craigslist, they seem to shy away from that and classify it as Spam.

Have a great day and we will chime in with answers to some other common questions again very soon.

Blog will move over to lease2buy.com website

So we are now working feverishly in order to move the blog under the umbrella of lease2buy.com

We are working with the kind folks at Google and our Hosting Provider in order to get this squared away.

I'll personally spare you the technical geeky details, but be assured that this will be a good source of behind the scenes information for you.

Juicy tidbit - here is a great link that shows when all of those vital economic indicators are released: http://www.newyorkfed.org/research/national_economy/nationalecon_cal.html

Added New Advertising on our site

OK, so we saw a niche and filled it well! Seriously, though, we had tons of requests from cutomers who wanted a broader advertising spectrum on our site, so we started offering a granular approach, i.e. in Welcome E-mails, Renewal mails, in the Newsletter, etc.

So, for the full skinny on all the details, check out the "Breakthrough Approach Permits Granular Marketing to Home Rental Market" Press Release link at http://www.lease2buy.com/press.php
