Be Respectful Of Others

The rentbits community is comprised of many members who may have different experiences and perspectives. Disagreements and debates are acceptable, and even encouraged, so long as the discourse is kept civil and does not include personal attacks. Insults or rude comments towards others are not permitted under any circumstances. Likewise, venting, ranting, hateful discussions or attempts to damage the reputation of those inside or outside the community are inappropriate. We respect everyones right to free speech but we will not tolerate harassment in the community.

Share Great Information

Make a positive and lasting impact on the community by sharing your knowledge and opinions with others. Always post quality information and strive to post highly informative and useful content. Please answer questions with helpful and relevant information. Yes and No answers or answers that simply request that a user contact you for more information are not helpful. Rentbits encourages you to answer questions with as much detail as possible. Please pay attention to the geographic location associated with questions. Your expertise in one particular market may not translate well to another rental market. If you are a property manager, make sure you complete your rentbits property manager profile in order to share your relevant personal information and experience with the community. This will also add more credibility to the content that you share with the community.
