Runmyhouse Services Inc. Introduces First Self-Managed Property Rental Online Hub

Online rental marketplace assists property owners with robust marketing capability, efficient booking system and payment portal, as well as a tenant-screening service and a generous amount of free information geared towards property ownership

BELLEVUE, Wash., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Runmyhouse Services Inc. launches the first self-managed property rental marketplace at  http://www.runmyhouse.com. It makes it a bit easier, or for some, a lot easier, to rent out their place; whether it's a vacation home or just a spare basement suite. What makes them unique is that along with providing the capability of accepting credit card payments for each listed property, they also provide screening assistance for potential tenants.

Although owning a rental property can be very profitable, 9 out of 10 property owners who have rented out anything can tell you some gruesome stories about their renting process. Consider this: After a long haul of renovations, your basement is finally ready to be rented. It's now time to worry about how to get tenants. Would you place ads in a newspaper, or go online? How much should you expose to the public, while being at risk of prying eyes? After toil, you find a tenant! Great. Now, about that rental contract ... should it be a one-year lease or a month-by-month deal? Go with a lease, since at least one year's rent is guaranteed. But, wait a minute, what if the renter is literally from hell? Quite a few movies have portrayed how chilly it could really get. A renter, under contract, is protected by law, and cannot be evicted so easily. Fine - how about monthly renting then? Well, you better be sure that you have enough sources to find tenants on a short notice! Of course, not all tenants are difficult, but when all the dust settles, there comes a new slew of maintenance worries: flooded wash-rooms, utility issues, not enough hot water... now you have to find a plumber in the middle of night! All-in-all, there's a lot to consider in the renting process.

Runmyhouse's service is designed to help homeowners or B&B owners, with an efficient booking process. It also allows them to connect to a broader audience of Internet customers. A guest or potential tenant may contact a home owner directly, or through the website. By using the web service, the tenant or guest is offered the additional option of paying rent or booking a vacation home with their credit card. Online booking is processed in real time. No waiting period and no registration is required, just like in a commercial booking process.

An onsite review system allows past guests and tenants to provide feedback for each listed property. At the same time, property owners have their piece of mind through Runmyhouse's tenant screening assistant service.

As well, Runmyhouse provides free information about house maintenance, home renovation and remodeling projects. "We are a community that shares information about house maintenance, renovation and managing rental spaces."

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
Gone are the days when application development was the daunting task of the highly skilled developers backed with strong IT skills, low code application development has democratized app development and empowered a new generation of citizen developers. There was a time when app development was in the domain of people with complex coding and technical skills. We called these people by various names like programmers, coders, techies, and they usually worked in a world oblivious of the everyday pri...
