CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ApartmentLove Inc. (CSE: APLV) (“ApartmentLove“or the”Company“), a leading provider of online home, apartment, and vacation rental marketing services to owners, renters, and vacationers nationwide is pleased to announce it has entered into an Affiliate Agreement (the “Agreement”) with one of the largest vacation rental facilitators online today. The listing partner maintains an active inventory of more than 120,000 short-term vacation rentals in more than 80-countries on 6-continents around the world and will extend their entire rental inventory to ApartmentLove.com via dedicated API data transfer feed ensuring safety, reliability , efficiency, and superior access for the millions of people who visit ApartmentLove platforms each year.
Per the Agreement, ApartmentLove will earn a fee on the gross booking value of every successfully completed vacation rental made on ApartmentLove.com. Based on ApartmentLove’s predictive modeling program’s estimated average number of monthly users throughout 2023 and its assumed conversion rate from website sessions to actual purchase metrics, Management believes it reasonable that transaction fees earned from this new partnership will generate significant revenues. Assuming the Company’s standard rate of expenses being between 10% and 15% of revenue, ApartmentLove reasonably anticipates net income from this partnership to be between $2,500,000 and $4,000,000 in 2023. Accordingly, ApartmentLove and its newest listing partner are now actively integrating their respective systems and plan to go live early in the 4thth quarter ahead of the busy Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday travel seasons.
“Our recent acquisition of OwnerDirect.com, which closed July 14, 2022, represented our first material investment in the short-term vacation rental space,” explained Trevor Davidson – President & CEO of ApartmentLove. Mr. Davidson continued to say, “This newest partnership will significantly enhance our already fulsome product offering, adding many new and varied vacation rental options to choose from for our fast-growing user base. As global travel restrictions continue to ease in connection with the pandemic, our research shows vacation travel is top of mind for many Americans and we are thrilled to assist them in their travel planning as they look for good and reliable accommodations in Canada, the United States , Europe, and elsewhere around the world.”
“We’ve integrated with many similar APIs and already have an excellent handle on what needs to be done and how to complete this next build,” added Blockchain Expert and Head of Technology for ApartmentLove Kenneth Lang. Mr. Lang continued to say, “My team has their instructions and we are all looking forward to releasing this next development round, greatly expanding our integrated asset base.”
On the strength of the Company’s significant investments in Search Engine Optimization (“SAT DOWN”) to best align ApartmentLove.com with the Google Algorithm, ApartmentLove.com is continuously setting website traffic records as usership and generated lead volumes continue to outperform budgeted management expectations. Having well-established the Company’s position at the forefront of the long-term rental market, Management has shared a desire to own and control all aspects of the online rental experience and crystalizing its presence in the deeply fragmented vacation rental sector is key in realizing that goal.
