Hey there, RentPress friends!
We’re excited to bring you the latest release (7.4) of RentPress for Websites, which brings a 🚢 boatload of new features and bugfixes for websites large and small. We have property brand colors 🎨, enhancements to city landing pages 🏙, and a totally refreshed single floor plan experience 🪄. The update is live NOW and available to all websites.
No matter how they shop, there’s no question that apartment hunters want to see the apartment.
As in, they want to see the exact apartment they’re considering – how is the lighting, check out the view, does it have the features they’re looking for.
Now, you can showcase multiple photos, unit-level features, and more from your floor plans pages. (This is great for all properties, and it’s perfect for those value-add projects where you’re in the process of renovating units across a property.)
With 7.4, we’re bringing a whole new look to the single floor plan pages.
- Floor plan images now bring in multiple images from your data feed (where provided)
- Individual units will show the unit-specific features found in that unit (also right from your data feed)
- We’ve added a new list to display floor plan features distinct from the broader community amenities
- The floor plan’s deposit range is now displayed to shoppers.
Here’s a look at how works on the individual floor plan page:
Our new custom branding and property filters allow you to give shoppers new ways to filter through available apartments.
Let’s say you have a phased project with multiple buildings, and you want customers (and your leasing team) to be able to sort floor plans by phase. Now, you can easily add a filter for this right on the main Floor Plans page.
Check out The Town Center Collection or The Collective DC as examples of our new branding and property filters in action.
