Rent Finders USA, Inc. Continues to Stand Firm Against Downward Trend in the Real Estate Market

WEST PALM BEACH, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2006 -- According to the Florida Association of Realtors, home sales transactions in the RFDU's market year over year are down over 36% for the month of June, yet RFDU has seen only a modest decrease in same-store sales transactions with a reduction of only 11.5%. RFDU's total transaction volume on a same store basis (including rentals) was virtually flat with a decrease of less than 1%.

Existing home sales in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast posted double-digit declines for the seventh straight month, "emphatically busting a housing boom that saw sales skyrocket and prices soar from a median of $145,300 in June 2000 to more than $400,000 in just five years," according to an article in the Palm Beach Post.

"This is a strong indicator of the success of our contrarian business model's ability to buck recent trends. We are very confident that our corporate strategy will drive our sales up, despite the downward trend in the marketplace, propelling us toward our target of profitability," stated William Luckman, CEO of Rent Finders USA, Inc.
