In vibrant cities like Montreal, where young professionals and students pursuing higher education tend to converge, these two demographics represent a significant portion of renters both in the city center and the suburbs. The common thread among these groups is their dependency on technology for apartment hunting, expecting instant access to information. Traditional marketing mediums like newspaper ads, flyers, and billboards have largely become obsolete.
Keep in mind that over 50% of rental searches are conducted outside standard business hours, as per BetterBot's research. To effectively engage with these potential renters, understanding their unique needs is critical.

Even if high rental rates aren’t keeping renters from signing leases, the expectations that come with the higher costs are coming as a surprise to many leasing and property management teams.
Along with higher standards like property cleanliness and access to unique amenities, the use of technology throughout the entire tenant experience has become a requirement, not a preference. When renters have the perception of ‘you get what you pay for’ and they’re paying record-breaking rental prices, it’s important to demonstrate how you intend to meet those expectations in order to win those leases.
