Chandler-based Tweener Homes, a technology-based real estate company, is excited to announce its partnership with Expedia’s vacation rental software, Escapia. The agreement provides temporary home rental solutions for people who are in between permanent residences and searching for, or in process of building, their new permanent dream home.
Based and launched in Chandler, the real estate company connects homeowners and property managers with renters in need of fully furnished home rentals for one to 11 months. Tweener Homes is the first of its kind in the industry, filling the gap for families who need an “in-between” residence while searching for a permanent home or waiting out construction or renovations.
“I was once ‘Tweener’ myself and experienced firsthand the anxiety and frustration of where to look and find a comfortable temporary home until we could move into our new permanent home. We are thrilled to announce this partnership which will give Tweeners across the country easy access to find and book a fully furnished home,” said Nick Calvi, CEO of Tweener Homes.
His personal experience and subsequent research revealed a neglected group of home renters which he was a part of.
“I found furnished rental homes for short term vacation stays but were cost prohibitive for a multiple month stay and unfurnished homes but required me to sign a 1-year lease. For people in between a vacation rental and a 1-year lease, there weren’t any options that made sense,” he said.
Escapia provides unmatched and innovative software tools allowing property managers to operate their businesses more efficiently by directly integrating their property details, availability and rates. The relationship with Tweener Homes offers exposure to a new audience of home renters, real estate brokerages and new home builder clients. More than 14,000 vacation rental owners and managers can now seamlessly list their properties through Tweener Homes to diversify their marketing plan, increase the visibility of their rental homes, and drive demand and bookings especially during times when rental homes have lower occupancy.
The partnership offers benefits for renters, too. Rather than waiting days for a response from rent by owner property or other platforms, Tweener Homes provides up-to-date availability information so people can easily filter through the offering of homes and book online at their own convenience. Many homes are offered with special monthly discounts and monthly payment options as opposed to paying the cost of the entire rental stay in advance. Another savings for renters; Tweener offers the lowest listing fee in the industry to keep rental rates as low as possible AND, unlike other companies, does not charge any service or booking fees to the renter.
Tweener Homes is the first technology based real estate company devoted to assisting people in need of a fully furnished monthly home rental. The company connects homeowners/property managers with home renters who seek a comfortable, furnished home rental for one to eleven months in lieu of living in a cramped, no privacy apartment or hotel.
