We want to share our excitement that VHDA’s VirginiaHousingSearch.com, an online rental housing locator service, celebrated its six-year anniversary this summer. Launched in 2009, the site passed a milestone of more than 100,000 registered units in 2014, and in 2015, added a specialized Veterans option that helps landlords promote themselves as housing providers for veterans.
Since its inception, Virginia Housing Search has added useful resources and links for landlords and renters. Visitors to the site will find checklists and affordability and cost calculators, as well as links to federal, state and private organizations that govern rental housing and support people with disabilities and their families. VHDA’s free How to be a Successful Renter eBook is also available through the website.
VirginiaHousingSearch.com is provided at no cost to consumers looking for rental housing as well as landlords who want to list a property. VHDA sponsors this service as a way to provide an easily accessible and comprehensive online listing of available rental properties across Virginia.
