Did you change your property categories?
We recently updated the categories in our listings tool to make it even easier for tenants to find what they’re looking for.
Here are the new categories and what they mean:
- House - A one unit dwelling structure. This usually refers to a single-family detached home that has open space on all four sides and is not attached to any other structure. Typically you will select this if you are renting out an entire home to one renter or group of renters.
- Apartment - A suite of rooms forming one residence, typically in a building containing a number of similar groups of rooms.
- Condo/Multiplex - A housing structure that is either a.) part of a bigger unit or building, where the owner of the condo owns the interiors independently and the other services in the building jointly with other condo owners. Or b.) a house divided into multiple apartments, with a separate entrance for each.
- Townhome – A building containing a number of individually owned residences, connected side-by-side.
- In-Law/Basement - An apartment located below street level, underneath another structure - usually a house. Includes a separate entrance and amenities. An in-law apartment can also refer to a detached rental structure on the same property.
- Single Room - A room for rent with shared kitchen and common areas within the same building structure. Single rooms cannot be listed under Apartments or Condo/Townhomes.
- Sublease/Student Contract - This refers to the transfer of a lease from a current tenant to another person, but with the original tenant retaining some right or interest under the original lease. A student contract can be a sublease or a lease for housing that is approved by a higher education institution or rented to someone based on lease parameters that work with students.
What we deleted:
- Manufactured Home - Manufactured homes should now be listed as a house (if it’s a standalone property) or a multiplex if it has multiple units that are being rented out.
- Horse/livestock - Due to low number of listings, Rentler no longer has an option to rent out livestock property through our site.
