For a second time in two weeks Yardi and its clients found themselves
mobilizing for a natural disaster response. With Hurricane Irma wreaking
havoc in Florida and its southeastern island neighbors, Yardi launched
another dedicated housing registry, RENTCafe.com/HurricaneIrma,
to assist displaced residents. Leveraging its RENTCafé property
marketing and leasing platform, the site allows displaced residents to
find temporary or permanent homes and for housing providers with
properties in the affected and surrounding areas to list available
units, some with special concessions.
There is no charge for housing providers to list their properties on the
website or for residents to use it. Yardi has also launched a hotline
that evacuees looking for housing can call for housing assistance. The
toll-free number is (844) 363-6317.
“The best case scenario for everyone is that our disaster response
efforts remain untested, but we have them in place so that we can aid
those in need,” said Gordon Morrell, executive vice president at Yardi.
“As we did for the people affected by Hurricane Harvey, we are ready to
help the people displaced by Hurricane Irma get back on their feet as
quickly as possible.”
Yardi is offering disaster response assistance for clients affected by
either hurricane, including additional program support and tools to help
clients communicate with their residents during the aftermath. Yardi
representatives are reaching out to clients in the affected areas to
offer these and other services at no charge.
