This webcast focuses on the recent changes in demographics, and therefore, the new developments in technology, which are causing a shift in the way apartment communities acquire new leases. Current statistics illustrate that the explosion of Millennials entering the rental market are impacting the apartment marketplace. Millennials are considered mobile due to their engagement in a number of social networks, and thus, are changing the way communities can be found online. As mobile devices simultaneously simplify and revolutionize the ways we engage online, local search results are rapidly rising to the forefront on every marketer’s checklist.
