What is Rental Buddy?RentalBuddy.ca was started in June of 2014. The site was launched in June 2015.
How did Rental Buddy come about?
Rental Buddy was born of the idea from the personal experiences of busy landlords that had to list their properties while away from their home offices. We thought as technology kept moving forward there had to be a better solution than what was available to landlords for posting your apartments, suites or houses for rent. This how Rental Buddy was born. We saw an opportunity to build a great business and help make it easier for landlords and tenants to connect and share information regarding rentals.
Our model will provide clients with a better way to explore, rent, buy or sell their rental properties. We sensed that tenants and property owners would appreciate having a map-based, one stop site to access and store property listing information. Feedback from clients and curious onlookers have reinforced our belief that this is a system that works for everyone in the rental market.
We provide consumers the 'best-of-both-worlds' - a market-leading online experience to explore real estate then professional service from licensed agents when they're ready to list or buy a property.
We're completely self-contained technologically. We design, write and manage all the software that runs ViewPoint.ca including our own in-house data center, which can run for weeks without power.
