TITLE: Student Property Portal FreshRent launches v2.0 continuing to disrupt the student portal market.

Former Students Prop Tech startup company Student Smart LTD has launched V2.0 of the FreshRent student accommodation search website – concentrating on user friendly design elements to entice new students to the site.

Company Director and former university of Lincoln student Aaron Short Says ‘FreshRent has always been a disrupter in the market; on launch we had more properties available than our established rivals in many key UK cities, we have continued to build relationships with key agencies in order to maximise our online stock”

FreshRent which was purchased by the Student Smart Group in 2016 for an undisclosed sum has undergone a huge design revamp, and spent over £126,000 on bespoke features and algorithms to set the site apart from the competition.

FreshRent v2.0 has great new features, including the ability to automatically search by current location; the ability to book physical viewings through the site; and a handy utility bill estimation tool for properties which do not include bills as standard

Lettings agents and private landlords are now able to choose their own pricing, the subscription model has been revoked allowing agencies to set their own prices, and listing on the site is free.

With properties in over 20 University Cities in the UK and over 70% of purpose built accommodation providers on board providing over 50,000 rooms to choose from, FreshRent has one of the largest online registers of student accommodation in the UK.

Director and former University of Lincoln student Henry Debenham adds “Our business model is completely different to anything out there; we allow agents and private landlords to set their own pricing and have invested heavily in algorithms that monitor the displayed properties on the site”

Director and former University of Lincoln student Matthew Meekins comments “We’ve added some really exciting features for users, with lots more to come over the next few months, including details leads tracking and bespoke agent / landlord dashboards”.
