VirginiaHousingSearch.com - The Housing Search Site That Provides Landlords With Big Benefits

“Having a ‘live person’ you can talk to, who is friendly and helpful, versus trying to deal with the frustrations of an automated system, is why so many landlords tell us they love the VirginiaHousingSearch.com Call Center,” said Crystal Kirby, director of outreach and regional support for Social Serve, the non-profit organization that hosts and maintains this service sponsored by VHDA.

Since its 2009 launch, this free online housing search site has become a key resource for Virginians seeking rental housing. Currently there are 135,000 rental units listed on the site, which receives an average of 23,000 monthly visits.

Maximum landlord benefits

In addition to useful tools that let potential tenants search for rental homes by preference — such as size and location — the site also provides big benefits for landlords. At the top of the list is the toll-free bilingual Call Center that assists landlords who want to advertise their properties on the site. The VirginiaHousingSearch.com Call Center is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and provides landlord support that includes:

  • Adding photos and maps to listings and checking for typos.
  • Taking calls from potential renters when the landlord is unavailable. 
  • Providing timesaving tips for managing multiple properties. 
  • Helping create wait-lists to prevent unwanted calls. 
  • Offering tools that make it easy to advertise rental units on other online classified services.
  • Developing reports to see how often listings have been viewed, and how they compare to others in the area. 
  • Regularly checking in with landlords to verify that listed properties are still available and making any needed listing adjustments.
  • Re-activating listings.
