  5. #9 may hurt “any” website displaying this information because many p.m’s have rentals in higher crime areas.

    Why would they want to post a listing on a site that tells renters. “don’t live here, high crime area”?

  6. Where applicable, I do insert a link to WalkScore so that prospects can chart the rental property’s proximity to amenities * usually a STARBUCKS!!
