average cost of renting an apartment across united states


"real estate prices in rental apartments showing sluggish growth"


The cost of renting an apartment in the US is showing signs of  sluggish growth

The above chart shows the cost of renting an apartment in the united states compared since 2007 onwards. While vacancy rates  slowed signs of  coming down, the average rental costs  has remained  constant, with very little upward movement
In 2011 the average rent for an apartment  was $1011, in 2012 it grew to a  mere $1050, less than 5% growth.
 In 2014  average rental costs in US  was at $1127 and  grew   less that 4%   compared to 2013
In 2015 this grew to $1179 , a growth of 4.6% compared to 2014.

One of the reasons why this is happening is the demand supply gap.. while there is a growing inventory of  apartments.. for users to choose from.. The number of users  among them has not increased in the same way the ” supply side” apartments” have grown

real estate marketing : 3 Digital  techniques to increase conversion


1)  Select ad segment your audience, You cant be targeting both masses and classes. Determine you ” consumers according to  your offering . If you wish to target ” 2 BHK apartments.. Find out who are the users that can afford to buy and map the media usage according to their online user habbits  

 For example, newly married couples ( DINKS ) Double Income and No Kids.. who are yet to raise a  family might be the perfect fit  to target your ” online campaign

2) Have media plan for masses and classes :Similarly a BHK Apartment, would appeal to a family with 2 kids who requite there personal space . Choose your media plan ” by taking into account ” which sites  or properties they frequent most. For example, users opting a 3BHK would certainly have a higher disposable income , and would probably invest in equities rather than Debt . This segment is more likely to buy a second car… Zero in your target segment and map  your media plan accordingly

3) Video Testimonials : This is perhaps the most effective way to convince potential buyers on  why they should choose you … Talk to your ” satisfied consumers and ” made a 3 to 5 minute video “where they share their experience” The believebility  quotient of ” Consumers actually “watching a video testimonial is worth more than any paid advertising, as users would rather believe some one who is actually  sharing their experiences, a compared to banners ads, social media and Advertorial.
