Equity Residential is now a partner
HomeShare announced partnerships with Equity Residential, Fairfield Residential, and Sares Regis.
What they do: HomeShare is a housing marketplace that simplifies the process of linking housemates and finding a rental property. The startup helps landlords increase occupancy rates by making individual apartments available to multiple people.
Why it matters: In the Daily Beat’s conversation with Founder Jeff Pang, he stressed the importance of working with landlords in the current market model. Although the company is based out of Silicon Valley, he recognizes that radical disruption will fail.
