Colorado Springs, CO. In August of 2012, Property Manager Websites launched a chapter website for the Colorado Springs chapter of the National Association of Residential Property Managers. The website, www.ColoradoSpringsPropertyManagement.org was a brand new URL at the time. While the URL is a nice exact match domain, it still usually takes a while (more than a year) for a site to start to appear in search results. Today I did an incognito search for “Colorado Springs Property Management” from Atlanta, GA and found the chapter website on the front page. These are incredible results for such a young site and such a competitive search term.
The goal of the initiative is for the chapter to present their membership to the investor community as they search for property managers to manage their investment property, and to increase the value of a NARPM membership. NARPM members usually do property management full time, and follow a code of ethics that other property managers are not bound by. The directory on the site allows the user to search for property managers that are closest to the property that they would like to have managed, and is powered by technology from www.freerentalsite.com, and built exclusively for NARPM. This is a great example of a local NARPM chapter taking control of their market through the use of technology, and we are proud to be a part of that effort.
