Zilify is a collegiate rental housing database launched in November 2012, owned and operated by Zilify LLC. The site allows users to search for housing based on vicinity to college campuses. Listings are displayed at their addresses, allowing users to conduct a location-based search. Zilify offers users the unique opportunity to make rental offers directly to property managers. This survey platform allows for a competitive market amongst the collegiate rental community.

Background

Zilify LLC was founded in August 2012 by Hank Couture and Todd Saunders, as seniors at the College of William & Mary.[1] The site currently only operates within the Williamsburg area, however has plans for expanding to other colleges across the United States. Based off the website, Zilify currently operates with a staff of 4 people out of Williamsburg, VA. The company's business model is based on advertisements and listing fees.

Couture and Saunders founded Zilify in hopes of making a more transparent marketplace for off-campus housing. Couture has been quoted as saying that “We kind of think it’s an unfair process...Houses constantly get passed down within organizations and between friends. It’s all about who you know, and if you don’t know anybody, you can’t find anything.” [2] By offered a competitive platform for off-campus houses and apartments to be found and rented, Zilify hopes to simplify the work and responsibilities of both college students and property managers.

Website

The listings are displayed based on the collegiate campus they are representing. Users may search listings by size, price, and distance to campus. Registered users may then submit a monthly rental offer for any interested property. The information is passed along directly to property managers to examine at their own accord. Zilify does not operate as a real estate broker and instead as a real estate marketing company. Listing fees for properties are based on a standard metric and Zilify has no control over the final rental price or on the final tenants. The website operates as a platform to connect interested tenants and property managers at the most optimal price possible.
