A week or so back, the Great Lakes IT Report tipped us off to the Michigan Housing Locater from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. The site is devoted to assisting Michigan residents in finding affordable housing, and giving property owners a marketing tool for their rental portfolios.
The free site allows landlords to enter property details and amenities and to add floor plans, photos, renters’ application and even a lease. Renters can search by zip code, amenities, keywords and whether the property offers income-based rental. When they find a likely subject, they can see Google maps of the location and email inquiries directly to landlords.
