Free Public Virtual Meeting Wed June 8: Feedback Session for Software to Rent by the Room Compliantly

View Calendar

This presentation will focus on RentOptimum, new software developed by and longtime MassLandlords member Alex Narinsky. The platform combines Alex's experience with Airbnb and VRBO in the Boston metropolitan area. Alex pivoted his rental business to concentrate on long-term apartment shares, in some cases room-by-room rentals. We will review:

  • Reasons why "apartment sharing" is in demand like never before.
  • The policy framework in towns that regulate renting by the room and apartment sharing including Boston, Worcester, Newton, Arlington, Cambridge and more.
  • Renovations landlords can make to increase the availability of rooms for rent.
  • Is it a lodging house?
  • Do I sign joint and several or separate agreements?
  • How RentOptimum can help you manage longer-term room rentals.

Attendees will leave having seen Alex's software and given feedback. Attendees who subsequently try RentOptimum and give Alex feedback will have their service charges eliminated for one year. There is no expectation or requirement that anyone use the software. MassLandlords receives no affiliate commission for promoting RentOptimum. There is no sales pitch in terms of pricing or hidden conditions, Alex is just looking for people to try his platform and give feedback.
