HousingLink created the Housing Hub in April of 2012. It started as a place to watch affordable rental housing educational videos, and had resources for renters, social service agencies, and landlords. However, we have exciting plans for Housing Hub moving forward.
The Housing Hub of the future will centralize and revolutionize affordable housing waiting lists:
- Applicants join wait lists from their phone, tablet or computer.
- Easily keep applicant contact info current to fill vacancies faster.
- Centralized applicant support. We will handle applicant questions for the properties.
- Custom support for onboarding existing waiting lists.
- Wait list audit reporting.
The process of searching for subsidized housing is time consuming and expensive for both renters and property managers.
Housing Hub allows all wait lists to be part of one website. Renters can create a profile and then add their name to waiting lists where they qualify, all in one place.
Renters can also see where they are on the list at any time. This allows renters to update their contact information in one place, making it a more efficient and effective tool for properties to fill vacancies faster.
Housing Hub will bring knowledge and power into the hand of the renter, and allows them an easy way to search and find new housing options they may not otherwise access.
The properties will save time by no longer having to manage the waiting list, and when openings come available, they will get filled much faster!
We will keep you posted as the Housing Hub evolves!
