WestsideRentals.com Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary, Connecting Los Angeles Apartment Owners With Quality Tenants

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2006 -- Since 1996 WestsideRentals.com has successfully connected hundreds of thousands of quality tenants with landlords and roommates. WestsideRentals.com is the definitive location for owners and managers of Los Angeles rentals to locate quality tenants searching for apartments in Los Angeles, condos in Los Angeles, houses for rent in Los Angeles, and guest houses for rent in Los Angeles. Initially started in Santa Monica, due to overwhelming demand from landlords in need of quality tenants to fill their vacancies, WestsideRentals.com has grown to cover most of Southern California. As a service to the rental community we regularly publish rent surveys to assist in making the rental market more transparent and efficient for all of its participants.

WestsideRentals.com is ten years old. In 1996 in Santa Monica, California, a former L.A. County beach lifeguard opened a small office on Santa Monica Blvd. This past June WestsideRentals.com opened its new corporate headquarters located at 1020 Wilshire in Santa Monica. Six additional satellite offices located in Hermosa Beach, Pasadena, Venice, Studio City, Costa Mesa, and West Hollywood are also open 7 days a week to serve the landlord, renter and roommate communities. To celebrate its 10th anniversary WestsideRentals.com is publishing detailed rent surveys on specific Southern California areas; these surveys are available free of charge to all residential rental housing market participants.
