Our previous Design Client RentMethod was acquired by Airbnb mid-2015, to support local and global growth. We couldn't be more thrilled for the news, watching their success since our partnership began. Here's the full PR blitz:
Apartment rental company RentMethod has been acquired by Airbnb and will be shutting down at the end of August. Customers that used RentMethod are being encouraged to port over their data to other solutions, to which the company will provide a list in the future.
Founded in 2012, RentMethod billed itself as making it easier for apartment owners to rent out their residences. The platform offered tour scheduling, apartment showings, facilitated rental applications, and more through its website and even had a team of real estate agents on-demand.
